One of the most common complaints we hear in the office is neck, back, and shoulder pain related to sitting at a computer or desk all day long at work. As we sit gravity is pushing down on our body compressing our spine and causing our muscles to tighten; over time this pressure can cause pain. Along with regular chiropractic care, these simple quick stretches can help you counteract gravity, open up your spine, and stretch tight muscles. If you don’t have time to do them all, pick your favorites that address the areas that hurt the most on you, and try to do them a couple times a day. Remember, stretching should not cause pain. Hold the stretch for the time indicated, and never bounce or force the stretch as this can cause injuries.
