Simple Stretches to Get You Through the Day

Simple Stretches to Get You Through the Day

Chiropractic Bentonville AR Neck Pain

There's no denying it: desk jobs wreak havoc on the human body. We're built to move rather than sit in front of computers for 8 hours at a time. Sure, you take your dog for a walk once a day, or you make the effort to use the stairs rather than an elevator, but at the end of the day, you're still stiff. Taking periodic walks or jogging in place aren't always an option.

Here are some stretches you can do at your desk to break up the monotony and get your body loosened up:

Neck Stretch

Tilt your head so that one ear almost touches your shoulder. Hold this position for a few seconds and switch to the other side. If you need a deeper stretch, use your hand to gently push your head closer to your shoulder.

Shoulder Stretch

Bring one arm across your chest with the elbow only slightly bent. You don't want to strain your joint. Place your other hand under your elbow and gently guide your arm across your chest until you feel tension at your shoulder. Hold for a few seconds and repeat with the other arm. Be sure not to twist your body as you stretch.

Back Stretch

Cross one leg over the other and rest your opposite hand on the crossed leg. Using the back of the chair,slowly twist your back until you feel the stretch. Hold for a few seconds and switch to the other side.

Being confined to a desk doesn't mean you have to neglect your body. If basic stretches aren't enough, or you're unsure what to do to minimize pain, contact us to schedule an appointment. BetterBody Solutions can help you live a healthier life.
