Shifty Shoulders: Tips for around the office.

Shoulders are made up of several joints, tendons and muscles, making it a complex region of the body. Be it awkward posture or repetitive strain, shoulder issues have been plaguing people since the dawn of time. Here are some helpful tips to help you work on those shifty shoulders in the workplace.


  • Develop better posture - this is easier said than done, but you can start by optimising your work-space and sitting correctly. Bring that mouse closer, lift that monitor and don’t sit on your foot (you know who you are).
  • Change things up - in an office setting I suggest people drink green tea through the day, then their constant bathroom visits force them to get away from their desk. Alternatively, go have a chat to Barry, he’s a top bloke and has just got back from a trip to Tasmania.
  • Breath - with every breath, each rib separately lifts the entire rib cage up and away from the hips therefore lengthening the spine. Not only will this help to clear your head, it will also take quite a bit of pressure away from the spine and disks, ultimately strengthening the torso.
  • Yoga for flexibility and mobility, Pilates for strength and stability.

These are just a few tips to get you started...
