Quick tips for back pain from sitting at desks
Everything is fine, but then one day we wake up and BAM it we can barely stand up.
Or, one day you start getting headaches, day after day.
WARNING: You must work with a medical professional. You must find out if there is an underlying medical issue.
But as far as biomechanics goes – here’s GREAT tips that got my back sorted, and got my pupils to the Olympics again and again:
- Clean your teeth on one foot. No 1 exercise I give my Olympic athletes! Put one leg straight out in front of you. Best exercise for the elderly – but be careful to hold the cabinet until you’re steady!
- Stand on one foot. Truck drivers have to stop to refuel. Office workers need to get up to go to the bathroom. Everyone makes a cup of tea or coffee, or gets a cool drink from the fridge. But SPECIFICALLY: with the other leg straight out in front of you.
