Massage and exercise therapy successfully combat work related postural issues
Posted on 4th July 2018 at 10:00
More and more of us are suffering with non-specific neck or back pain bought on by practices in the work place. These conditions can cause immense frustration and lead to a lack of concentration, reduced output and time off work.Does that sound familiar? In many instances GP’s will only suggest pain killers and rest rather than offering a solution to the problem. With numbers reaching close to 30% of adults aged 30 to 65 experiencing these problems there has to be a better solution.
Why are so many of us suffering?
In many cases these debilitating conditions are the result of sitting in front of computers for too long or standing whilst undertaking repetitive tasks. These conditions are further exacerbated by a lack of exercise outside of the work place. Moving in general is good but we also need to look at doing the right exercise to help stretch and develop the muscles that have been contracted or stressed during the day. Could you do with finding the right exercises for you? If so book in here.
