Upper Crossed Syndrome Recap

Posted by on Mar 11, 2015 in Bodywork Techniques, Exercises, Health and Wellness, Stretches

After that whole month of tips to help combat Upper Crossed Syndrome, we’re moving onto other areas of focus. But, as you have probably already realized, reversing the effects of forward-leaning is an ongoing practice, especially when you continue to work at a desk, ride your bike, or walk while looking down at your phone! We want to make it easy for you to keep accessing these  exercises, stretches, and tips, so we’ve put together a Youtube playlist with all of the videos from the last month for you to bookmark and visit  as often as you need.

 

Over the course of the playlist you’ll:

1. Follow along with Scott to review what causes and characterizes Upper Crossed Syndrome.

2. Check-in with Scott and Jenny to make sure your desk set-up is on-point, and then follow along with Esther to remind yourself how to use a theraband to maintain the healthier postural patterns you’re starting to build.

3. Stay friendly with your favorite version of the Bruegger’s Stretch — either with or without theraband resistance — to maintain activation of the muscles of the back.

4. Keep working on that posterior kinetic chain exercise for another angle at activation of the weak upper back muscles.

And finally, don’t forget to come in for regular tissue work to open up those overworked muscles of the front body!
