Mobility

Text neck? Stiff shoulders? Too much time sitting in front of a computer?

Try these:

  • Go swimming
  • Go for long walks
  • Do morning stretches
  • Hang – like hang from a pull-up bar
  • Steam baths, saunas and cold showers
  • Do air squats
  • Get a good office chair
  • Work on hip mobility
  • Get up from your desk and stretch every now and again and take a walk over lunchtime
  • Get a foam roller
  • Get an electric back massager, remember to massage the base of your skull
  • Have a deep tissue Thai massage – ask for firm/deep pressure, it might hurt a bit
  • Do good old lower back extensions at the gym
  • Do dislocates and j-curls
  • Go for dry needling
  • Watch this: How you move defines how you live, and part two

Connective tissue takes 6 months to regenerate, so keep going with the above and form good habits.

Dry needling really worked well for a stiff neck.

Happy health hacking, crazy kids.
