Quick Posture Fix

Quick Posture Fix

In the following video I show you the 3 exercises I do for a quick posture fix. I do these after I find myself sitting for long periods of time. These are great stretches for people who sit at a desk all day long, sit in a car for long time periods, or after a flight. Sitting wreaks havoc on your body and these stretches will help to correct that.

Dr. B Hates Sitting

I spend 80% of my day on my feet. I’m either adjusting patients or standing at my desk doing paperwork. This last weekend I attended a conference and found myself sitting for hours on end. My body felt terrible! At the conclusion of each day of the seminar I did these 3 stretches and I was back to normal in no time!

The three stretches are :

  1. Hip Flexor Stretch
  2. Thoracic Opening
  3. Thoracic Bridge

The thoracic bridge is my favorite, but all 3 are important.

Sitting Series

Previously, I did a series of 3 videos discussing sitting and the negative effects it can have on your health. If you did not see those videos they can be founds here:

After you try these exercises yourself, let me know how much better you feel after!

Yours in Health,
