Patient exercises

At work

Do your joints and muscles get tired, stiff or achy when you sit for a long time?

Most people sit down for a rest but sitting should be an active exercise! When sitting for prolonged periods it is important that you maintain good posture using the deep stabilising muscles around your spine and pelvis. Your chair will help you to do this but will not do the whole job. You need to work a little too to help your postural muscles to support your spine and this will help prevent problems from developing not only in sitting but in other positions too. The following information aims to help you understand how you can improve your posture and contains tips on exercises and stretches for you to do if you spend the majority of your day sitting.

Positioning your spine correctly and using your chair to help you maintain a good position is the best way to start. You will then look better, feel better, prevent your back and arms from hurting and even be able to breathe more easily!

  • Healthy sitting advice - find out how to adjust your chair and desk space to properly support you and avoid undue stress on your body.
  • Pause exercises - some brief exercises you can do at your desk to avoid stiffening up.
  • Coping with stress - we give you some tips on how to manage stress more effectively.
