Understanding the Burden of Shoulder Tension

Are you among the countless desk warriors who’ve been battling relentless shoulder tension while working at your computer? If you find yourself distracted by this persistent issue, it’s time to get your focus back. The first step in releasing the tension is understanding where it’s coming from, usually it is a combination of holding stress in the shoulders as well as strain from lots of time at a computer or phone. Between the stress and screen time, the shoulders pay the price.

Why do I hold all my stress in my shoulders?

Many people tend to hold their stress and tension in their shoulders and neck. When you experience stress, your muscles may tense up, as a protective mechanism. Flexing the muscle is an expression of the defensive, fight-or-flight response. Unfortunately overtime, this tightens the muscle, leading to discomfort and pain in the shoulder area.

How does time at a desk create shoulder tension?

Desk tension has become an unfortunate companion for many office workers. This invisible adversary creeps up on you, manifesting as that nagging shoulder tension that never seems to go away. Time spent at a desk can create shoulder tension overtime

Poor Posture

The primary culprit behind shoulder tension is poor posture. When you sit at a desk for extended periods, it’s easy to slouch, hunch your shoulders, or crane your neck forward to look at a computer screen. These positions put undue stress on the muscles around your shoulders and neck, leading to tension.

Repetitive Movements

Desk work often involves repetitive tasks such as typing, using a mouse, or reaching for items on your desk. These repetitive movements can strain the muscles in your shoulders, leading to overuse injuries and tension.

Static Position

Remaining in a static position for long periods, such as holding your arms in front of you while typing or using a mouse, can cause the muscles in your shoulders to contract and tighten. This sustained muscle contraction can result in discomfort and tension.

Lack of Ergonomic Setup

An improperly set up workstation can exacerbate shoulder tension. If your desk, chair, keyboard, or monitor are not ergonomically adjusted to suit your body, you’re more likely to adopt awkward postures that strain your shoulders.

Inadequate Breaks

Failing to take regular breaks during your workday can prevent your muscles from getting the relaxation they need. Without breaks to stretch and move around, tension can build up in your shoulders.
