Hip, Leg and Back Pain Reduction From Sitting

This is a great exercise to reduce tension in the piriformis.  When this muscle is tight, it presses on the nerve and causes pain to radiate down the leg and into the back.

These are just a few exercises you can do to help keep your body tension and pain free.  There are several more exercises and instruction videos available on bodybuilding.com.



Of course another great option for stress and tension reduction is to have one of our therapists provide chair massage at your office.  Ask your HR department or wellness team to call us for a quote.

Best Sleep Position

We are often asked by our clients the best position for sleep.  We found an article written by Jonathan FitzGordon, In this article, the author explains the best positions for sleep.

  1. Sleeping on your stomach is the worst sleeping position.  It compresses the back.
  2. On the side with one leg hiked higher than the other.  This is also not an ideal sleeping position.  It twists and torques the pelvis.
  3. Sleeping on the back with both legs straight and without a pillow is a good sleeping position.
  4. Sleeping on your side with hips stacked is also a great sleeping position.

There you have it if you are looking for the best sleeping position – choose on your back or side sleeping with hips stacked.
