Neck and Wrist Issues? Come to Mobility Class on Saturday.

Mobility Class Saturday June 20th 2015

#180-4255 Arbutus Street.  $20 Drop in.  1130-1230

FOCUS: WRISTS AND NECK

Wristsand neck muscles are commonly at the ‘brunt’ end of suffering our aches and pains. What I mean by that is that lack of range of motion further through your kinetic chain (shoulder, thoracic spine) will cause you to compensate, and move differently. As a result the neck muscles and wrist muscles are forced to adapt to different positions, and can often become stiff and sore from chronically being used inappropriately, and too much.

If you are a computer user, you guaranteed have a need to mobilize your wrists, and if you don’t sit upright with your ears over your shoulders you’ve got some need for some neck work as well!

Come join me on Saturday to spend some time loosening these areas that have taken the brunt of your pain for some time…
