Release typical office work trigger points. Exercises for Lower back and neck pain.
Had a long day? Do you have neck pain from office work and back pain, particularly in your lower back, from sitting down a lot? Or do you feel generally tense and stressed? The lopsided positions we adopt during office life don’t do our bodies any good. Our fascial tissue becomes stiff and forms trigger points which lead to pain.
You can release those trigger points with these exercises for the lower back and neck, which are particularly ideal if you work in an office. Combined with deep breathing, you'll also activate your parasympathetic nervous system through these exercises. This is part of the nervous system that is responsible for regeneration and recovery. These exercises can also help with neck pain, which many office workers struggle with.
Enjoy a relaxing evening ahead after this trigger point massage.
Take a deep breath and feel the pressure of the trigger. Try to relax your muscles despite the pain.
To release the typical office work trigger points, hold the position for about 30 to 60 seconds. The initial pain should subside during this time.
