Straighten Up Anytime Anywhere

Do you find yourself moving differently these days? Perhaps your commuting time is cut and you’re staying in more or you could be working harder than ever before.

Whether you’re moving less or working more, it’s important to remember the impact that certain activities can have on your spinal health. For instance, slouching on the couch and binge watching your favourite show for an extended period can contribute to poor spinal health.

On the flip side if you are putting in extra hours at work, this may cause additional stress to your body and spinal health if you’re not implementing the correct techniques or taking infrequent breaks.

No matter what your situation may look like, the Straighten Up app is a great tool to help you remember to take care of your spinal health.

The app features a three-minute stretching program designed to help improve your spinal health, stabilise core muscles and enhance overall wellbeing. It also allows you to set helpful reminders throughout the day about taking breaks, stretching, correcting posture and staying hydrated.

Other helpful tips include:
