Written by Dr. Michael Tancini, Ground to Overhead Physical Therapy

If you missed last week’s blog, Four Recommendations to Limit Sitting, I’d recommend checking that out before proceeding to these stretches to combat your sitting problem.

You did not get stiff overnight and large-permanent mobility changes will not happen in one session. Large mobility gains take a while to attain.
