Is your desk job causing you pain

Millions of Americans have a job where it require us to sit and type on a computer for 8-10 hours a day.  If you are the typical american you sit at your desk to eat your lunch instead of giving your body a much needed hour break.  I see clients come to my practice complaining of sore neck, shoulders and your typical job related stress.   A typical case is a client comes in with shoulder pain.  I try to explain how having tight chest muscles can cause your shoulders to round forward and cause you to experience pain in your upper back.  My advice usually consist of these 5 tips.

  1. Making sure your work station i is ergonomically correct and it puts your body in the correct position
  2. Take breaks from your computer during the days.  5 minutes goes along way.

  3. Stretch.  I can’t stress the word STRETCH enough.  You can never stretch to much.

  4. Self Care:  if you have a foam roller that means using it 3-4x per week.  It will help loosen those tight muscles in-between your massages.  After a long day of work it will be calling your name.

  5.  Massage:  Get on a maintenance plan of once every 4 weeks just to keep everything in check.  Your car require maintenance and so does your body.  You only have 1 so take care of it.

 My typical clients are athletes, weekend warriors or individuals recovering from a injury.  If your in need of a massage, you may book on-line at www.ultimateserenitymassage.com
