I'm trying to share two stretching positions that have helped me relieve my shoulder and back pain. I have degeneration of discs, cervical and thoracic. My pain is in left side, arm, fingers, back.Please see my drawing. I'm sorry I draw badly.So you stand, you push your arms out horizontally, with both your palms up. I always feel my left shoulder and arm aching while doing this.The 2nd move, you stand straight, push your arms and fingers to the sky. Stretch to your limit.
