One year into the pandemic, it may have at first made us happy to skip our commutes, but as time goes on, we are likely to be sitting far too long at screens. Worse yet, we're probably overstressing our body with poor posture and overuse of repetitive activities such as typing – especially with less than satisfactory ergonomic standards. Muscle pain is a difficult thing to live with – how do we fix it? And how can we bulk up faster?
A full one half of American adults suffer from musculoskeletal conditions. The typical injuries can worsen, leading to progressive weakness, increase susceptibility to injury, and a degenerating strength and dexterity. Muscle soreness is also of primary concern.
Is there any hope? Tightness is a sign of weakness – you can feel less pain through the use of improved muscle activation techniques. Some possible solutions include physical therapy and massage. Muscle activation techniques take things to the next level by improving muscle stability and strength to optimize muscle function by first analyzing range of motion. Once analyzed, it uses muscle-specific palpation to activate dysfunctional muscles. Finally, implementing position-specific isometrics then improves muscle function.
