What Can Your Neck Tell You?

Is Your Neck Getting Your Attention with
Headaches, Concentration Issues, Neck Aches, Shoulder Pains,
Numbness and Tingling into the Arms?

Beware of excessive texting.  When we have our heads flexed forward while looking down at a text screen and keyboard for long periods of time, the structure of the spine adapts to the position and posture changes develop. Eventually, there may be nerve involved muscle spasms leading to pains.

By the way, forward head positions, bending your head down for long periods, can lower your lung capacity, which can lead to heart and vascular problems.  If you do nothing, you will get worse.

To avoid the consequence of this repetitive stress; text from a raised position, take regular breaks, look straight ahead while tucking the chin back towards the neck every few minutes. With your arms down by your sides rotate your shoulders and always sit up straight.

It is important to do the exercises to help improve your posture, strengthen your neck and create better habits for life.
