Due to the time spent in poor posture behind a screen or driving, many of us experience tension in our necks or shoulders on a daily basis. To overcome it, some tips and exercises proven by chiropractors at AFC.
In case of proven pathology, ask your chiropractor for advice before practicing these exercises.
1. Neck Rotations
Standing with your hands on your hips or seated with your hands on your desk with your back straight, gently tilt your head to the left, trying to bring your ear to your shoulder. Hold for 10 seconds and move to the other side. Next, lower your head down, bringing your chin closer to your chest, hold for 10 seconds, then straighten your head. Continue by gently letting it fall back, 10 seconds and straighten up. Finally, turn your head to the right until you feel a slight stretch to the left of the neck, hold 10 seconds. Repeat on the other side.
2. Shoulder Bearings
Stand with your hands at your sides or seated with your hands on your desk with your back straight. Roll your shoulders back and forth in a circular motion. Repeat 10 times and start over, back to front this time.
3. Arms in The Air
Stand with your hands on your hips or seated with your hands on your desk with your back straight. Raise your arms in the air, straight above your head as if you were trying to touch the ceiling with your fingertips. Keeping your head and torso still, move your arms back until they pass behind your head. You should feel a stretch in the middle of your back. Bring your arms just above your head. Repeat 10 times.
The body reacts to stress by contracting the muscles … To relax your muscles … start by relaxing, period. To this end, take breaks to recharge your batteries: you can, for example, perform breathing exercises or take the time for a short walk after lunch or dinner.
