Incredibly, 86 per cent of American workers spend their working day sat motionless at a desk. Is it any surprise, then, that many of us wake up every morning with stiff necks, shoulders, and backs? For many desk workers, pain in these areas is just a simple fact of life that we begrudgingly learn to live with.
However, I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be this way. With the addition of a few simple stretches into your morning routine, it’s possible to banish back and neck pain forever. Who knew? The key with these stretches is to practice them as regularly as you can manage. Many of them can even be performed while you’re sitting at your desk at work, so there’s no excuse not to give them a go. Go on. You know you want to.
One of the simplest stretches you can incorporate into your routine is the knee tuck. It’s so simple, in fact, that you don’t even need to leave your bed to do it. Simply lie on your back, and hug your knees up towards your chest. While here, rock from side to side, or try making small circles with your knees. You should slowly start to feel your back relax, and pain subside.
