Alltek Tip: Office Worker Stretches With Leading Edge Physical Therapy
You may think that sitting in a chair at your desk all day isn’t all that taxing on your body, but that’s not really the case when it comes to your upper back. The fact is that, even though you’re sitting down, gravity is still working against the muscles in your back and shoulders. Over time, this causes them to tighten up.
“What we’ve seen is that people that sit for long periods develop a pattern of restriction in their neck and shoulders,” says Mike Ryan from Leading Edge Physical Therapy. “We’ve developed a routine for stretching and changing the length of the muscles, which really helps you tolerate that activity a lot better”.
This routine developed by Mike and Leading Edge Physical Therapy is simple and quick – a great way to help limit tension in your upper back over the course of a long workday. Click PLAY below to check out the full video and learn the routine for yourself:
