Posture Exercise

When you're working hard all day in a seated position, it's very easy to stop paying attention to your posture.

A lot of times patients with forward head carriage and rounded shoulders, it's due to prolonged sitting, which causes your neck and your shoulders sort of to mold forward into that posture.

These are four exercises that you should do in progression to help prevent that, as well as retrain your muscle memory to hold your shoulder blades back.

The first one is called the Y drill.

Arms up like this in the shape of a Y, shoulder blades pinched back, and you're going to hold for about 10 to 15 seconds.

From there, you're going to move into T.

Arms out like this, like the shape of a T, and then into W and then into L, 10 to 15 seconds.

This should be done probably three times a day.

Each one held for about 10 to 15 seconds in progression.
