Stretching to Relieve Pain

After a day of hard work. You may need to calm your body to get through the rest of the day. Back pain is a common problem that you might experience when you're sitting almost all the time on your chair. So well as taking years out of your life, a typical sedentary lifestyle reduces men in their prime to pain-ridden wrecks that are 50 years old every time they attempt to get out of a chair.


"The result of sitting in this bent pose all day is muscle tightening," says PT Phil Sims. This tightness puts the muscle under pressure, and jumping up for the tea round will bring the pain from the shoulder blades to the back. However, if left unchecked, this tightness may also lead to exhaustion, as muscles start to get sore and painful, if you try to remove your desk. Luckily, Sims mentioned the best calming exercise you're going to have to say goodbye to back pain. Both movements add strength to your pelvis by loosening your lower back and relaxing your hip flexors, providing greater relief than just picking up paracetamol. Set aside six minutes of guaranteed success each evening.
