Most of us are in the same predicament – sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day, hunched over the keyboard with our necks bent in unnatural positions.
In truth, our backs were not designed to spend long periods of time sitting at desks. Spending 6 to 8 a day in front of the computer can lead to shoulder, arm, hand and neck problems, as well as issues with balance and co-ordination. Here, in this article, we discuss how office-workers can avoid back pain with a few simple changes to their routine.
The day to day use of technology, often spending hours hunching over, slouching down and excessively flexing your neck can cause both damage and deterioration of the spine. Chin Tucks are perfect for specifically targeting the muscles in your neck which assists in reversing the damage while improving both stability and functional strength.
Get Better Results From Your Care.
One of the key components missing from most Chiropractic Clinics is Rehab. Physiotherapists, on the other hand, may have fantastic rehab – but alas are often unable to provide the corrections to restore normal Spinal Biomechanics.
To assist in our Rehabilitation Programs we use a number of different devices, physical therapies, exercise therapies, mirror image exercises, Spinal remodelling and traction equipment.
One of the most popular, and evidenced based machines, used to assist You in Your recovery is Whole Body Vibration (WBV).
WBV can be used to assist with virtually all strength, stretching and rehabilitation programs. The 3D Vibrational Technology provided by our medical grade plates is quite impressive in its ability to help you recover faster, improve your flexibility and stimulate muscles you never thought you had!
The Stretching and Exercise Booklet contains all the rehabilitation exercises you will ever need.
This is a fantastic Free eBook that covers stretching, basic and advanced Ball training, core stability, strength training and Hydrotherapy.
For patients of the practice I recommend that you download and implement the simple stretches and first few ball exercises once you have begun Spinal Reconstructive Care.
Stretching is one of those things that we know we should do, but never find time to do!
Well if you are reading this then you are most likely under care and getting a regular adjustment. But what can you do to help?
Stretching is perhaps one of THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS you can do to facilitate your Neuro-Muscculoskeletal Care.
Unfortunately, most people stretch too little, and when they do, the do so too aggressively. The result: torn muscles, a sense of frustration, and generally more pain.
Stretching needs to become part of your life.
The more time you spend stretching the less likely you are to have injuries of your muscles and ligaments.
Stretching is just like brushing your teeth:
- Stretch every day – spinal hygiene is important.
- Don’t push it too hard – the gums don’t bleed, but you can tear a muscle.
- Make it part of your routine – do you only brush your teeth when they are sore?
- Stretching does not replace the Chiropractor – but enhances your Chiropractic care.
- Does not cost anything – but will save you money and reduce your pain.
