1)Chest stretch, hold this for 30 seconds each side 4 times per day throughout your working day to prevent the muscles shortening and in turn pulling the shoulders forward.
2)Resistance band reverse flyes x 12 repetitions, again 4 times per day to strengthen your upper back muscles and start to train them to hold your shoulders in place.
3)Neck stretch, again, hold this stretch for 30 secs 4 times per day.
