Three desk stretches to keep you moving
Try integrating these basic stretches into your working routine. If you’re having persistent or localised pain, be sure to seek the advice of a medical professional.
1. Pec stretch
From a seated or standing position, cast your hands behind your back to open up your chest then lift your head to the ceiling.
2. Chin to armpit stretch
From a seated position, place your right hand over the back of your head. Turn to look into your right armpit and use your hand to gently pull your head down. You should feel this stretch through the left side of your neck and upper back. Repeat on the other side.
3. Seated rotations
While seated, use your left hand to hold onto the arm of your chair and twist to the right. Repeat five times, then alternate sides.
