Back stretches you can do at your desk

If you are one of the thousands of people who sits for long periods of time at a desk working you need to ensure that you are moving around as much as is feasible to prevent your muscles from stiffening, tightening and causing pain in your upper back, neck and shoulder region. Whilst we all know that a simple stretch here and there will help we often don’t find the time to be able to do this. So here are some stretches that you can do whilst you are sat at the desk you purchased from an Office Furniture Gloucester company.

Spine Rotation

Cross your arms over your chest and place your hands on your shoulders. Gently twist your body to the left side and then the right. This will help to ease any tension that is being held in your lower back area.

Posterior Shoulder Stretch

Hold one arm out across your body, place your other hand on your upper arm just above your elbow and gently pull the arm towards your chest. This will help to ease stiffness in your shoulders.

Shoulder Shrugs

You should gently raise your shoulders up towards your ears and then gently let them fall back down again. You should repeat this a few times. As you do this you will notice any tension or discomfort in your shoulders starts to be released.
