Yoga for computer neck and shoulders

Please note-if you are suffering from headaches please see your doctor.

Many of us spend a great deal of our day with our arms forward.  Whether we are working at a computer, driving a car, working on a checkout etc and this can lead to tension in the shoulders and neck.  This tension can lead to tension headaches.  

The aim of this all-levels video is to release that tension with some counter  moves to the postures that set up tension in our neck and shoulders.

Below is some further dietary and lifestyle advice if you suffer from headaches:-

• Migraine headaches are often associated with food.  You may need to keep a food diary but common culprits include chocolate, oranges, cheese, red wine (or its derivatives such as balsamic vinegar), nitrates (in ham, corned beef etc)
• For migraines you may need to avoid going too long without food
• For migraines you may need to avoid strobe lighting
• Tension headaches may arise from tension in the neck and shoulders (see video)
• Avoid ‘lie ins’at weekend but make sure you are getting enough sleep as headaches can be brought on by being overtired
• If you work at a computer take an ‘eye break’at least every hour to avoid eye stain which can result in headaches.  Have regular eye tests to avoid headaches due to your prescription changing.
