Exercise Of The Week: Simple Chair Stretch

In keeping with our post last Friday about ways to help keep holiday travel pain free, today’s exercise is a simple stretch that can be done anywhere. Whether you’re at work, school, home, at an airport, on a plane, or taking a break from a road trip- this can be done to help relieve stress and tension.

  • Stand straight, facing a chair, desk, counter top, or any other flat surface
  • Slowly bend over, placing your forearms on the surface, with your upper arms parallel to your legs.
  • Keep your legs straight.
  • Tuck your head slightly into your arms, as to stretch your neck and back
  • Hold the position for 20 seconds
  • Raise yourself to the starting position.
  • Repeat

Please speak to your provider before starting any new exercise regimen.
