Put Your Back into it Infographic

So, after having mild whilplash (and a b*stard of a headache) following a car accident last week, this infographic from Furniture at Work is quite interesting.

I never realised that stiffness in your back and neck, can cause headaches.
This is pretty interesting because I ALWAYS have headaches around my eyes, and I’ve been hammering the decongestants for the last 6 months to try and clear the pain.

Hopefully I can stop taking them and focus on stretching, foam rolling, lacrosse-balling and massaging my neck

Back Pain (and neck pain) is a massive problem with office workers.

Having worked as a labourer on a building site for 5 months, my back was sore but never stiff.  In fact, even though I was too tired to do anything after work, and it was quite dangerous, and rubbish pay, the one good thing about this kind of physical work, is that your body does feel very loose and flexible after a day of shoveling mortar and carrying bricks
