Our Favorite Stretches To Do At Work
Our modern workload and lifestyle can lead to tightness in to stop it.

Life has changed. In the distant past we gathered and hunted our food, carried water from a well for drinking and bathing, tilled and planted fields and then harvested them for the rewards. We would spend hours of every day on our feet: walking, bending, lifting, twisting, all the while working our muscles. Not exactly what most of us our doing today. The average work day for most of us now starts with an hour long commute each way sitting in a car, followed by 8-10 hours sitting in a chair. We order in our food, take shower in the comfort of our homes and then head to bed for a nights rest and get ready to repeat the whole process the next day. Many are exercising daily, but will an hour or so at the gym give you all the benefits of a day of work?


What we see quite regularly now are patterns of tightness (and weakness) that develop in people from having their muscles in static positions for long periods of time. How can you combat this?


Stretch at work. It's as simple as that...


The areas that we see people developing the most tightness are in their upper neck muscles, pectoral muscles, hamstrings and hip flexor muscles. Doing some simple stretches to these areas during the day will keep you more limber and may even prevent you from needing to come see us.
