Is your head down a lot?

Many of us are spending a LOT of time on a computer, on our phones or other devices now. This noggin forward posture causes a multitude of problems:

  • Lower neck (cervical) problems such as disc bulges, herniations & arthritis
  • Forward rolling shoulders
  • Increased likelihood of lower back herniations
  • Thoracic kyphosis (think Hunchback of Notre Dame)
  • Hip & problems because our weight is not being distributed properly in these joints

Here are 3 easy exercises to help negate this forward-head posture.

Are you suffering from low back pain due to sitting too much?

The psoas may be the culprit. 

(It's pronounced "so as". Or as some of my clients would call them, the "so bads".)

When you can't get an awesome deep tissue barefoot massage, here's how you can stretch it yourself at home.

If you want to learn a little bit more about the psoas, here you go!

Who else is sore and tight?

Sometimes, we just feel like we need a good torso stretch, but maybe the regular ole touch-your-toes variety isn't helping.

Whether you've been sitting too much or using muscles you forgot you had while gardening, etc., this may help you out.

This week I have 2 easy stretches to help get you functioning better. ("Egoscue corrects the postural issues that are at the root of your ongoing discomfort.")

Targeting the restricted areas of your back, torso, hips, and chest, they're powerful but easy, and you can do them on the floor. 

Achy hands, wrists, or forearms from using electronics or playing sports?

A series of simple wrist and forearm exercises may help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome as well as keeping more mobility in your wrists & forearms.

In this mini series of stretches, you'll learn how to work both your forearm flexors (on the side of your palm) and the extensors (on the side of the top of your hand).
