DO YOU SIT MOST OF THE DAY? Try these stretches…

Most of us know that sitting is not the best position for our spinal health, especially if we are sitting ALL DAY. However it is sometimes difficult to avoid.

We of our may have sitting jobs or spend a lot of time travelling or on our phones.

Too much sitting can aggravate back conditions or at minimum, stiffen up shoulders, upper back, mid back and lower back areas.

Dr. Lisa, chiropractor, has taken a visit to Yoga Flame in Moonee Ponds to ask yoga expert, Emma, to help those of you who do sit too long.

She has put together a wonderful few minute video routine to do at your desk, or at home.

Aim to do the stretches 2-3 times a day and if you experience any pain (other than a gentle stretch) then stop and see your practitioner.

We go through:

  • Neck stretches
  • Mid and low back rotations
  • Unwinding shoulders
  • Side stretches                                                                                                                                             And a wonderful de-stressing breathing exercise to finish off.
