Most Americans maintain a regular daily work schedule of at least 8 hours — and we experience muscle pain for it.
Erin Stebbins, LMT, CES, COMT is a pain-relief expert, massage therapist, and the owner of True Balance Pain Relief Clinic in Denver, Colorado. She specializes in helping you reach a place of pain-free living, especially if you’re living with chronic pain, injuries, or muscle pain.
The approach Erin takes involves counteracting stagnation with simple movements to help you eliminate muscle pain at the source.
The best way to reduce back and shoulder pain is to add some variety in your body’s position as you’re working. Even if the new position isn’t necessarily posture-perfect, your body will appreciate the change. Try sitting on your couch and taking some calls. Or stand at your dining room bar or kitchen counter for a half-hour and do some computer work. Variety is the name of the game if you are stuck plugging away at a screen for long hours. This simple tip will help you relieve muscle pain.
You can stand up and do some grounding or deep-breathing exercises for 10 minutes before returning to work. This can also help you avoid burnout and improve your focus on your tasks. Additionally, it helps relieve muscle pain.
Take these tools with you when you head back to work, whether that’s at your office or at home. They’ll help you relieve pain, maintain healthy circulation and improve the efficiency of your lymphatic system.
