Five Exercises Reduce Neck Pain of
If you’re stuck behind a desk for eight hours a day, the last thing you probably want to do is exercise after work. But, no matter what your physique goals are, it is important to exercise in order to improve your quality of life as well.
Being an office worker means you’re more than likely suffering from neck and shoulder pain, perhaps even both. Being hunched behind your desk or straining in front of a computer all day could be the source of your suffering.
According to an ongoing Danish study more than half of female office workers reported to suffer from neck pain. The researchers also found that more than two-thirds of female office workers who reported neck pain suffered from trapezius myalgia.
The National Research Centre for the Working Environment in Copenhagen, together with the University of Southern Denmark, recently published their findings in the Journal of Applied Physiology. In their report, researchers listed the top five exercises that benefit office-related strains, specifically for women. These exercises include shoulder abduction, shoulder elevation, one arm row movements, reverse fly and upright row, all of which can substantially reduce perceived pain.
