Why You Should be Stretching at Your Desk:
Getting injured from sport or exercise is not the only way we wreak havoc on our bodies. Sitting all day is just as dangerous. In fact, evidence shows that prolonged sitting increases mortality even among people who exercise outside of work. Also, some of the biggest complaints I get in the clinic are from sedentary office workers with neck, back and shoulder pain. This is mostly due to prolonged sitting with poor posture and lack of mobility throughout the day. So try these desk stretches the next time you’re at work.
