Here’s one Simple Way To Help Prevent Neck And Back Pain
Are you sitting for more hours in front of computers? Are you using smartphones throughout the day? I understand, It’s inevitable now-days. Unfortunately, these activities cause some bad effects on your neck and back.
Starring at your computers and phone results in bad posture which may strain and stiff your neck and back muscles. You will have to keep your core and back muscles strong to overcome these issues. Improving lumbar mobility is equally important to ward-off back pain.
Self.com suggests one simple way to help prevent neck and back pain:
Lie down on the bench with your chest in the center, your neck and face off the front of the bench. Your feet should be on the floor, or for more of a challenge, off the bench behind you.
Hold your arms at a 90-degree angle below the bench, with your forearms under the bench seat and with your palms facing your feet.
Bring your elbows up to shoulder level and squeeze your shoulder blades together as tight as you can.
Rotate the forearms upwards to make a goal post with your arms, bringing your palms to face the ground.
Reach your arms above your head, and then bring them back to the goal post position, once again by squeezing the muscles of the upper back.
Return to the starting position. That’s one rep—do three sets of 10 reps.
