Prolonged sitting at work behind a desk staring at a computer or arched over paperwork causes back, neck and shoulder pain as well as bad posture. This is a natural result of today’s working environment and can cause headaches and excessive tension in the neck, arms, shoulders, forearms, wrists, back, hips thighs and legs.The result of this is increased fatigue to the muscles and ligaments supporting the lower back. This can eventually lead to spinal joint dysfunction and tissue injury.
All these problems can be avoided by correcting your posture, exercising, using the correct equipment and possibly a massage targeted towards back pain and tension.
Most chiropractors and other medical professionals agree that, whilst preventing back and neck pain is not an exact sicent, there are a few simple tips everyone can follow:
A massage can help to relieve back pain and tension when performed by a therapist trained in techniques that address back pain and muscle imbalances relating to back pain. Although massage therapy and chiropractic may be able to help with normal back pain and tension it should never be considered a substitute for proper medical attention where there are serious back problems.
A sports massage can benefit anyone who engages in physical activity, including Swimmers, Weight-lifters, Golfers, Ball players, runners, tennis players, boxers, skaters and dancers.
