The following exercises can be performed in just a few minutes per day. The purpose of Postural Interruption exercises is to intentionally change the mechanical stress from one area to the other, to decompress (gently stretch) relatively compressed tissue and decrease the shear forces (stretch) on the opposing tissue. These exercises are low intensity and will greatly improve the way you feel, focus, and perform at work. We are gently altering the mechanical forces of gravity and life to improve circulation and nutrition to tissue.
