See this week's article for a review of the book Myofascial Stretching: A Guide to Self-Treatment.

Two stretches from the book for the upper and mid back - (remember - stretches should not cause pain; hold each stretch for 20-30 seconds).

1) Lie on your back with a pillow placed beneath the mid back. Stretch the arms overhead and lengthen the legs in the opposite direction. Feel the stretch in the back, ribcage, and front of the chest.

2) Place your hands in the prayer position and bring your elbows together so that your forearms are touching from the hands to the elbows. The elbows should be at the height of your shoulders. Round the upper back. Feel the shoulder blades sliding around the ribcage.

To order the book and to learn more about myosfascial stretching techniques for chronic pain, visit Denver Myofascial Release.

Check out this week's Ergonomic Newsletter for some back pain tips.

Thanks so much for the book info! Great review.

I work at the computer for hours each day and I've found that doing stretches on a routine basis really helps keeps the aches and pains to a minimum.

This book sounds like a great resource.
