Repetitive Tasks

Most of our daily tasks are simple and relatively easy to do, but when we do them over and over our bodies get fatigued and weak which then makes us vulnerable to tightness, stiffness and pain. Pens have been replaced by keyboards making writing text an activity causing many upper limb work disorders

While it is not always possible to stop doing these repetitive tasks, it is possible to adjust your posture while doing them to reduce the strain on the muscles, such as sitting with our shoulders up and back and our neck straight to take the strain off the upper back. It is also important to take regular breaks and get up and move around through the day to break the repetition of the task.

To enable the body to deal with the effects of repetitive tasks it is important to get regular treatment to release tension in the tight, overused muscles and to get movement in stiff joints. You should then combine this with stretches and strengthening exercises. Our staff at Spinal Joint have years of experience in helping people deal with the strain and pain that their everyday tasks put on their bodies. Come in today to let us help with yours.
