How to prevent muscle pain caused by bad postures

Generally, muscle pain derives from the postures we adopt on a day-to-day basis. For one reason or another, our skeleton also adapts to the reality we expose ourselves to.

Always check some aspects, for example in your work, that can help to substantially reduce your pain.

First, check the adjustment of your chair to the computer or desk.

These must be in line. When you sit in the chair your legs should be at a 90 degree angle. If you can't, buy the adapter seats so that your feet are comfortable. You can also choose to sit on a Fitball. Some companies already allow it.

Second, make sure the computer is set at the height of your vision. Do not let your arms hang, because after a few hours of work, pain and discomfort will appear in the shoulders and trapezius area.

Third, adjust the paperwork at work to avoid repeated gestures, especially if they are always in the same direction. The neck muscles will conflict, and the probability of the appearance of cervical and torticollis pathologies will be quite.

Fourth, see if you need glasses. Most people are at the computer without using the proper graduation. It turns out that if we are straining the angle of vision, we are also straining the muscles responsible for eye contraction. In addition to starting to feel a lot of pressure in the forehead and eyes area, we will also feel the cervical area, as the optic nerve passes through there.

It is also very important that you stretch your legs when you have been sitting for some time, this is because when we are in this position we contract a muscle called "PSCOAS" and this is closely linked to the lumbar area and when in tension, it causes enormous discomfort. in the lumbar area, making it impossible to carry out day-to-day tasks.

You can then stretch it by pulling the heel back and up towards the buttock, flexing the leg. Stay for a few seconds, feeling the front of the thigh stretch.

Also use basic stretches, such as taking your hands to the floor, with your legs stretched out, stretching your arms to the ceiling on a wall and hugging the back of the chair with your arms and opening your chest, for example, to minimize tension. along the day.

For readers whose activity is to stand for many hours, they can do the same stretches and should keep their body weight distributed over both limbs. In this case, the goal is to avoid resting on one side of the body, as in the long term the damage to the hip will be visible and the knee pain will be permanent.

In the case of some knee pain, it can be resolved by stretching the "calf" or what is called in the common name, calf calf.

This stretch can be done by placing the toe of the foot against the wall, keeping the leg straight and leaning the trunk slightly forward until you feel the "tummy of the leg".

If you feel a lot of pain, look for a professional, either natural or allopathic medicine. The important thing is to do something for yourself.
