Listen to your body

Upper back and shoulder complaints are seen frequently due to sedentary work. When sitting for a prolonged period of time, the upper back is stationary and can cause restriction in the neck and thoracic spine region. Overloading in the back can cause imbalances in muscles which in turn produces back, neck, and shoulder pain. Please see some useful tips to help retain good posture and prevent imbalances with sitting. 1. Do not sit at your desk for longer than 30mins. Get up move around even if it’s walking to the other side of the room touching the wall Andy return back to your desk. 2. Ensure you have your desk station assessed by an ergonomic assessor. This ensures you have good posture and do not over strain muscles and joints at your desk. 3. Avoid using mobile devises (iPads, laptops) for long periods. We tend to use mobile devises sitting on the sofa and on the move which alters our posture to a forward position which strains our neck Andy upper back. 4. Do daily upper back Andy neck stretches. This will maintain flexibility. 5. Strengthen your neck and upper back. Pilates and Yoga are designed to strengthen postural muscles, increase flexibility and realign the spine.   **Book in for an initial Physiotherapy consultation today to rid those aches and pains and “listen to your body” and become pain free **
