Simple stretches to help office workers

So many of our clients here in FTI work long hours, spending large periods of the day sitting at computer desks, in uncomfortable slouched positions. At the end of the day, when you get home from work after a stress-filled day, what’s the first thing you want to do? Chill out on the couch and relax…


While I would never tell anyone not to switch off and chill out when given the chance, unfortunately this common lifestyle has lead to the development of several work-related musculoskeletal disorders such as neck pain, low back pain, and shoulder pain. Sound familiar? 

Outlined below are a couple of simple stretches/exercises to help combat these issues and keep you pain free during your working day; and are ones that I feel will give you the ‘biggest bang for your buck’ in the limited time you have. 

Happy stretching!

Tight Hips Can Be A Curse!

 

Functional Training Ireland Physiotherapist Riain Casey tells us how to help loosen out those dreaded tight hips.

Many of the knee, ankle, and even low back injuries we see here in FTI are directly related to tightness around the hip joint.

Very often, this tightness can be brought on by increases in activity levels, or in other cases the exact opposite ie. sustained periods of immobility (sitting at desks, driving etc.)

A good functional assessment of how your body is moving can help to identify the exact source of this tightness.

Try these simple exercises that can help to alleviate any pain or stiffness brought on by tight hips
