Have you been spending more time at your desk lately?

As we make our way through these cold February days, it’s only natural to enter hibernation mode. But if you go home after a long day at your desk only to crouch over your laptop, you may find that all the extra screen time is taking a toll on your body.

In our previous posts, we discussed how poor desk posture often increases your risk of developing neck, shoulder and back pain. Sitting for long periods of time, repetitive movements and awkward seating positions may lead to pain and discomfort long after you’ve left your desk or closed your laptop.

Suboccipital Stretch for Headache Pain

In the third video of our series addressing improper desk posture, registered massage therapists Jessica Raedisch and Rolf Castanheiro demonstrate the suboccipital stretch.

Incorporate this stretch into your daily routine if you suffer from headaches that originate at the back of your neck.
