One of the most common things we see at the clinic is tightness in the neck and upper back due to chronic postural strain, thanks computers! With more people working from home now, this has become increasingly common over the past few years. Postural strain can eventually lead to neck pain, neck and back stiffness and headaches – all of which should be evaluated by a healthcare professional – but in the meantime, try this active neck stretch during your next micro break. Not taking micro breaks? We advise a quick, 2-5 minute break away from your computer every 60-90 minutes. Use this time to lightly stretch or go for a short walk. When you have a longer break, get our your medicine ball and treat your spine to a bit of mobility.
