Relief from upper back tension

All of us experience upper back tension and pain at some time or another (pain between the shoulder blades, across the back of the shoulders or pain in the upper back that causes headaches). This type of discomfort usually happens as a result of increased stress in our lives; due to increased work loads, job stress, family problems etc. The question I hear a lot is "what can I do to control it?"

My first response is (and I'm sure you've guessed it) see your Chiropractor. But, being a Chiropractor myself I know that there are a few good exercises that you can do on your own that can help a lot. I know this because I do them myself to loosen up my upper back.

Below is a new video I posted that shows how you can also do these exercises.
