We have all altered our life patterns since the beginning of March 2020. Your upper extremity muscles are asking for some attention. Follow along with Heidi as she takes you through some entry-level upper extremity strengthening exercises. Click the link below for a paper copy of these exercises.
As we have all been working from home on less than ideal workstations, Heidi has a few neck and shoulder stretches to take you through. This builds on Carolyn’s desk stretching last month. Give it a go and let us know what you think. Let’s get loose! Click the link below for a paper version of Heidi’s stretches.
It is getting hot outside. Are you drinking enough fluids? What are the effects of being dehydrated? Here are some quick tips for making sure you stay hydrated this summer.
Ever wonder how a tight and restricted nervous system impacts your muscle groups? Do you experience at times difficulty stretching out your muscles? Sometimes when you stretch do you feel pain that is best described as nerve based rather than muscular stiffness? These may all be signs of a restricted nervous system. Your body puts up guardrails of muscular tightness to prevent you from moving in ways that strains your nerves. Follow along with Heidi as she walks you through beginner level nervous system mobilization exercises to help free up your nerves, reduce your muscular stiffness, and improve your overall mobility.
