Over the past many years of working with a various range of people from housewives to runners to gym freaks, I have realized that stretching means different things to different people. There can be myths around it, a general lack of awareness or just incorrect techniques. In spite of tons of research around it, I still find myself educating people about the do’s and don’ts. Stretching the right way is crucial because a lack of stretching or incorrect technique can mean either causing an injury or aggravating an ongoing one.
Day in and day out I get patients whose pain has originated at their workplace. So no matter how much they treat their condition, the minute they get back into faulty postures at work, they are back to square one. Whether you are a gym enthusiast or a sedentary person glued to your laptop, it is essential to know how to keep yourself injury-free at work.
