Seated stretches for anyone who can’t stand or weight bear

Thought I’d share what’s been keeping me busy today!

I’ve been making a film to share some of my stretching exercises with other disabled folk or indeed anyone who is unable to do weight bearing exercises.

It’s really crucial that I maintain my flexibility and address the pain I get in my neck, shoulders and back. Because of my arm length discrepancy, I spend a lot of time with my arms extended forward and my head bowed (reading, typing, cooking, eating, etc).

It’s vital for me to remain independent and continue my self care for as long as I am able to.

This is just a small part of the routine, but may hopefully inspire anyone who has problems standing or weight bearing for long periods. I also do some stretches using resistance bands – will film those another time!

Excuse the odd expressions and belly flab flashing… 🙂

Enjoy! Feedback and questions welcome.
