Many of us spend most of our time between driving, sitting at the desk and relaxing. A main consequence of this is back pain. Here are five office friendly sections that can help!
You probably do not have the time or space to go through a full yoga routine in the office, but these sections are easy to pinch and undo some of the tensions introduced at your desk for hours.
One of the best passive stretches is a simple forward fold. By pulling yourself down by gravity, you naturally create space between your vertebrae and stretch the thigh muscles and back muscles.
Many people are unaware that tight thigh muscles are a major cause of back pain and never think about including them in their stretching routine. The muscles in our body are all connected. When you think about how one muscle group affects another, it's easier to find a good stretch for it.
When making sure your knees are bent, protect the lower back and prevent the thighs from being overused. extended. Let your upper body fall over your thighs and relax your shoulders.
You can strengthen the stretch by crossing your fingers behind your back and dropping your arms over your head. This flushes out the shoulders and pulls the lats away from the lower back, creating more room and releasing tensions. Take a deep and deep breath and let your head fall hard. As you leave the pose, curve your spine and slowly curl up, stacking the vertebrae together and lifting your head last. 19659014] Karla Tafra
We sit at our desks all day keeping our chest closed while our shoulders bend forward to type on our computers. Repeating this stretch several times a day helps to fight back pain, neck stiffness, and even headaches caused by excessively strained muscles. Place your hands with your palms facing forward on the chair behind you. Make sure your feet are hip-width and press firmly into the ground to create a stable foundation. Press through your palms and let your front body open.
Make sure your neck and head do not fall back. Instead, stretch your spine by sending your shoulders away from your ears and breathing into the stretch. This will help to create the much needed lift and prevent any neck strain. Use each inhalation to extend the spine even more, and each exhale to go deeper. When you're ready to come out, turn your spine in the opposite direction and guide your chin toward your chest to avoid discomfort.
