Last month we looked at how to best set up your desk to prevent neck and back pain. Poor posture is a result of weakness and lack of endurance in stabilizing muscles of the core and torso, as well as stiffness in the spine and chest. This then makes it difficult to maintain good posture. So, what exercises and stretches can you do to improve your posture?
3. Upper Back and Chest Roller Stretches
Poor posture leads to a shortening of the chest muscles and stiffening of the upper back. These stretches open the chest and stretch the upper back in the opposing direction to how we often find ourselves sitting with a slumped posture.
