Here in our Cambridge Osteopathy clinic we regularly see patients struggling with neck pain, shoulder
pain and low back pain. Long hours working at a desk is a major cause of these postural problems.

kitchens and bedrooms, more patients are looking for osteopathy to help with their muscle and joint
pain osteopath cambridge. The good news is that there are simple steps to help you avoid these
common aches and pains.
Step 1. Stand up every 30 minutes

moving, the quicker your postural muscles and joints will fatigue. Over time this can lead to knotted
muscles and shoulder and neck pain. Standing up for 1 minute resets your posture and reduces the
chance of postural fatigue.

moving. Walking is a great way of loosening up joints and muscles and getting the blood flowing which

substitute for getting out for a walk and some fresh air. A brisk 15 to 20 minute walk will not only get
your muscles and joints moving but will also help your cardiovascular system stay healthy and help
the brain stay focused. Try and get out at least once during the working day.
