We are in an area where people spend a lot of time on their cellular phones, tablets and even in front of television. This has a greater impact than we can believe on our bodies. By always having the head tilted forwards this cause postural deformation which in turn causes considerable tension at the level of the shoulders, neck and head.
We suggest a few daily stretches that can help you improve your posture.
- Trapeze stretching
- This stretch is done in a sitting position, you must place your right ear on your right shoulder. With your right hand you can apply a little pressure to stretch further. Hold the 30-second position and then switch sides. This exercise can be done 2-4 times a day.
- Breast stretching
- Sitting on the end of your chair, spread the legs slightly so that they are wider than your shoulders. Then raise your arms, palms up, so you can feel the stretch for about 30 seconds. Repeat 2-4 times a day if necessary.
- Compression of shoulder blades
- Always in a sitting position, drop your arms along your body, bring your shoulder blades closer together and hold the position for 10 seconds. Repeat 5 consecutive times a maximum of 4 times per day.
