You sit down at your computer to start your day, but something doesn't feel quite right.
It's like you woke up on the wrong side of bed, but instead you're at your desk!
So, you adjust your seating position a few times and eventually, you get settled.
One sip of coffee, a knuckle crack and a phone call later, the discomfort returns!
Again, you adjust yourself, but just when you think you've found the perfect spot, hunger strikes.
It's lunchtime. Another morning, down the drain.
Why You're Feeling So Uncomfortable
When you sit in a position that you're body isn't used to, it causes your muscles to overcompensate and become tense.
Usually, it goes away on its own but if you're a regular sloucher, the muscles end up staying knotted.
Sometimes they get so tight that they restrict your movement, causing you pain and distracting you from even the simplest of tasks.
How To Get Rid Of Muscle Pain
Option 1. Stretch
Stretch the muscles that are causing you trouble and most of the time you'll get an instant relief from the pain as the tension becomes loosened.
If you start every morning with a body stretch, the results will be even more effective.
Option 2. Pain Killers
If you're in a large amount of pain, it may be difficult to get relief by stretching alone.
An over-the-counter pain killer such as paracetamol or ibuprofen can help you to temporarily alleviate the pain.
Note: We don't recommend this option as a long-term solution.
Option 3. Massage Therapy
The simplest and easiest way of getting rid of muscle tension is through massage therapy.
By applying a firm pressure to the knotted areas, the tightness will become reduced and you'll feel better.
