Exercises to Help Take Away the Aches and Pains


Many people currently work at sedentary jobs and often develop very similar conditions. It is these types of jobs where people regularly need to get up and move around, or even perform some stretches at their desk. It is these sedentary and repetitive postures that frequently cause dysfunction and pain.

I did a presentation last year to a great staff at the YWCA and we went over different stretches and exercises they can do to help decrease the pains from a sedentary job.

These exercises can be performed a few times a day. They are meant to be slow movements to the full range of motion.
