The neck that is numb, the weeping shoulders are all the consequences of the whole day we spend sitting at the computer. A few simple exercises after awakening - and the pain will go away, and with the regular execution of the complex will no longer come back.
Back pain is a real scourge for anyone who leads a sedentary way of life and works in the office behind a computer. The main areas in which there are pains is the lower back, the upper back, neck and shoulders. The main cause of the pain is weak back muscles that do not work when we sit at the computer.
When pain appears, we try to accept a position of the body in which it will be minimal, and as a result, it can lead to curvature of the spine.
The source of back pain can also be stress and a sharp increase in severity. In any case, if this happens - be sure to contact your doctor. Pain may be a disease that should be treated with medicines or special procedures.
But most of the pain is uncertain and cured by strengthening muscles, ligaments and tendons. A set of exercises for the back can quickly strengthen your muscles, but do not be relaxed, otherwise the pain will return. Exercise should be put into habit and performed regularly.
Every morning, waking up, stretch out with all your might. Pull your arms as far as possible beyond your head, your heels - in the direction from you, and the socks, on the contrary, to your own. You have to feel how the whole spine is pulled out.
Lying on your back, lift the straightened arms and legs upright and shake them finely a minute for a minute. This will increase blood circulation in the muscles, cleanse them and restore performance.
Lying on your back, bend your legs in your lap, grasp your legs with your hands, and pull them to your chest. At the same time press the lower back to the floor. You have to feel how your lower back is stretched.
If you have not yet encountered the problem of back pain, try to sleep on a flat surface. With pains, pay attention to how and where you sleep, special attention. Soft mattresses and volumetric pillows are not too useful for the spine. It is even better to put a piece of plywood under a thin mattress and sleep on a flat cushion.
