Sitting at the desk will cause lower back problems and upper back problems and neck problems, etc, etc. Try this alternate approach to sitting at your desk. This video shows the absolute lowest back that is allowed. It is best with a back that is higher, but the lowest is shown so that the limit is displayed. If this does not significantly reduce your spinal aches then there is a deeper problem, please call us for a look. Contact us
Side Spine Stretch
Follow exactly what the video shows, practice and begin to feel different parts of your back, the different muscles, and learn to isolate them as you stretch. Becoming more aware of your body is a great thing!
Cervical Spine Stretch
Wake those tired Cervical muscles with this stretch
Upper Extremity Stretches
This will help to keep the hands and wrists loose and feeling good. Chronically tight wrists and forearms can be a sign of problems higher up the line into the neck. Try the neck stretches, if this does not resolve the issue then give us a call and we can have a look!
Seated Glut and Piriformis Stretch
This is a great stretch for people who sit all day. Again, learn how to isolate the muscle and get a good, deep, stretch. Note: Piriformis Syndrome is most often a problem with a hip or mid lumbar subluxation.
Chest and Back Stretch
Stretch to encourage an open chest cavity and to undo the poor spinal posture of sitting. Stretch and hold for 7 seconds
This can wake up and revitalize back muscles made sluggish from too sitting. Go to one sit and slightly rock 5-10 degrees to the side from front to back. It feels wonderful. Do it all through the day! If this does not significantly help, then there is a deeper spinal or hip problem that needs to be looked into.
