4 Excellent Stretches To Do At Your Desk To Relieve Neck and Back Pain - Back pain is the leading global cause of disability. Frequent upper and lower back pain exercises and other healthy movements of the back muscles, vertebrae, and connective membranes have proven to be one of the best ways to help prevent back pain. Stretching relieves the pressure on the back and brings increased blood circulation into that area of the body. With certain exceptions, even for people with existing back pain, properly prescribed gentle back pain exercises can significantly improve their symptoms.
Benefits of Stretching - Stretching exercises offer their own particular physical benefits that are not replaceable by more strenuous exercises. Because it is such a relaxing and easy health activity, a little daily routine of chiropractic exercises for lower back pain is ideal for the office. The simple, easy act of stretching breaks up the spinal pressure of sitting for long hours, and it offers many important health benefits:
4 Excellent Stretching Exercises To Do at Your Desk - Here are some of the most effective and popular chiropractic exercises for neck and lower and upper back health that you can do even while sitting or standing at your desk during your workday:
Head Rolls (Sitting) - The only thing more satisfying than a big snack at lunch is doing these head rolls. You can feel all the tension leaving your shoulders, and you can feel your neck and upper back vertebrae opening and the pressure on them feeling relieved. After you stop, you’ll feel refreshed and crave other highly effective stretching motions. To do head rolls:
Torso Arches (Sitting) - Sitting at a desk for long hours can cause slumping shoulders, which can lead to upper back pain and neck and shoulder tension. Stretching your core, back, shoulders, and neck feels amazing and helps relieve all the pent-up muscle tension in these areas. To do Arch stretches:
Ragdoll Stretches (Standing) - Rag Doll stretching is a passive movement that amounts to hanging the torso of the body to let all the lower and upper back muscles and the spinal disks stretch. It relieves tension from the neck and shoulders to the upper and lower back, hips, and hamstrings all with one movement.
Overhead Side Stretches (Standing) - Overhead side stretching releases tension along the spine, obliques, and shoulders.
Conclusion - Do all 4 stretching lower and upper back pain exercises and neck pain exercises in the order they appear above as your little daily routine for flexibility, relaxation, strength building, and relief of spinal and muscle pressure, tension, and pain.
