This is a perfectly normal occurrence: as we get older, our activity levels decline and our sedentary endeavors rise while posture remains a constant struggle. It is only natural that as our bodies age and weight is harder to keep off, our flexibility suffers. But the degree to which we let it deteriorate could make the difference between and old age full of pain and one of independence. If you are an 8-hour a day office worker, we want to help you preserve your flexibility to empower your life. When your body is flexible, every day motions are easier: the lifting, twisting and turning that occurs from the first second you step out of bed should not cause you pain.
Posture is, of course, tantamount to preserving the integrity of your spine, and these stretches will release tension from the muscles that support an upright posture, making it easier to sit up straight. Loss of flexibility is pervasive in the office, so let's start doing something about it. At our office in Milpitas, we can help you identify harmful patterns of movement and turn them into something positive. Let's start moving more and moving differently to change the way your body feels and impact flexibility. Give our office a call to schedule an appointment today.
