PREVENT NECK PAIN with EXERCISE

Is neck pain at work giving you grief?

Increasing computerisation in the workplace has made it difficult for us to keep a strong back and neck.

Could you benefit from strengthening exercises for your neck and shoulder muscles?

Researchers from the University of Queensland reviewed the scientific evidence for workplace-based interventions for office workers with neck pain. The study was published in the journal Physical Therapy.

The study found that regular exercise to strengthen the neck and shoulder muscles were the most effective intervention and was of greater benefit than trying to find the ideal ergonomic setup.

Simple neck/shoulder strengthening exercises may be what you need in 2018.
