“Office desk posture” can cause neck pain, but not in the ways you might think!
When people come in for their neck pain, more often than not we find that it’s the front of their body that is the cause of their aches and pains.
There are 3 main muscles that contribute to neck pain:
Your neck flexor muscles
All these muscles link up together and form your anterior chain. More often than not, our anterior chain is placed under a lot of stress and tension and that can cause a lot of tightness through the shoulders. When that happens, our neck is unable to move to its full degree.
This perfect stretch from one of our Osteopaths here at ReachHealth, Thomas Tang, hits all of those three muscles in the anterior chain for neck pain relief.
You might want to get everyone in the office doing this exercise 😉
