Here a few of my favourite exercises for you whilst you are working from home. These are from Rehab My Patient which I use to give my patients access to videos and advice on how to do the exercises I prescribe.

Stretching your neck

Reversing the slump

Sit up straight. Place your hands behind your neck and bring your elbows together. Draw a figure of 8 with your elbows, this will get your mid back moving and reverses the slump position we all drop into when working on our PCs - don't worry if your back clicks or pops

Mobilising the lower back and pelvis

Hip mobilisation

Sit upright with good posture, feet flat on the ground, and your knees at 90 degrees. Lift one from the chair, and draw a circle with your knee so that your leg goes in a circular motion, before placing your foot back on the floor. Repeat to the other side. This exercise is a strengthening exercise for the legs, and mobilises the hip joints.

Ankle alphabet
