The following YouTube video will show you how to do an amazing series of movements that will loosen up the muscles between your shoulder blades. If you spend a lot of time at the computer or studying books, you likely experience at tightening in this area. Stress can often cause similar sorts of symptoms in your upper back and neck. With friends, I often refer to this as “study-back” since my upper back used to get very tight due to spending hours pursuing my mathematical studies while in university. Now I experience this tightening in my upper back while pursing my livelihood as a software developer. What’s particularly interesting about this video is that it begins by setting a benchmark. By the end of the video and after carrying out the movements, you can see how much you can increase your range of motion in your arms by loosening the muscles between your shoulder blades. It’s really quite remarkable!
