Better Posture and tension relieving stretches:

- Shoulder Rolls
In this is the video I have made that helps to reduce tension in the upper back and neck muscles, and maintain a better posture, thus potentially reducing tension headaches from occurring. When we look down for an extended period of time, our neck muscles have to work harder to maintain our posture and they stat to fatigue. Thats why desk work can cause neck and upper back tension. Having ergonomic well adjusted in height work station help to reduce the effects of desk work so as the stretches.
Tension headaches are dull pain, tightness, or pressure around your forehead or the back of your head and neck. Some people say it feels like a clamp squeezing the skull. Often called stress headaches, they’re the most common type for adults. These can occur to anyone having stress, not just desk workers, but people who hold stress in their upper body.
