Have you got to that time of day where you’re stuck at your desk,you’ve not taken a break and your neck is starting to feel a little stiff? I’ve got a great stretch for you and you don’t even have to move!
Sitting straight in your chair,cross your arms over and hang onto your chair between your legs. Let your head hang forward and gently lean backwards. You should feel a lovely stretch down your neck, going into the mid section of your back.
Note: Make sure you don’t over stretch your neck, the heads weight is enough to give a great stretch without you having to do anything extra.
Sometimes I think massage therapists are like hairdressers and psychologists and sales assistants and yoga instructors and, well, anyone who generally listens in their day to day job. Listening is such an important part of my job because a lot of the stresses my clients carry aren’t communicated. These stresses in turn build up and create tension in common areas of the body. It’s not only agonising but the consistency of the pains can end up being really debilitating.
I see quite a few clients who have these problems and from talking to them further I’ve found a few issues they share;
1. Office Jobs/Computitis – (I thought I made up this term but found it on the urban dictionary: quote 1)The state in which a person at a computer can no longer see the screen clearly nor can they move their fingers correctly.2) when a person is sick of being at a computer.) I believe the term should be “An unnaturally long attachment to a technical device”. People who work in an office don’t move about as much, whether it be because of important deadlines or the nature of the industry, they’re bound to their desks and spend up to 8 hours sitting in front of a computer.
2. Bad Posture – As soon as a client sits down to fill out a confidentiality form I analyse their posture to see why they might be experiencing strains. Many don’t sit with a straight back and their shoulders are up to their ears.
3. Lack of exercise – Once you’re done with a long day at the office, motivation to go for a run outside or spend time in the gym tends to go out the window.
Here are three points to help alleviate common back pains:
1. Get up more from your desk. Maybe offer to do the tea run, get up to the printer every time you print something off rather than waiting to collect a wad of documents or talk to the person on the other side of the office rather than using the internal communication network.
2. Stretch. You’ll see from one of my previous posts a great stretch to do at your desk. If you imagine being in the same position all the time, stretch in the opposite direction to counteract the tension. This will also help your posture.
3. Exercise. I’m a huge advocate of exercise and regularly practice yoga. This isn’t for everyone but there are so many different forms of moving from running to dancing, tennis to football that you can find something to suit you. If you want to strengthen your core then pilates is also a fantastic way to do so which will help postural problems.
If I didn’t listen to my clients, I would never find these common themes and issues that so many people go through.
