What a Pain in the Neck…!!

Did you know many people seem to think neck pain and tight upper shoulders is normal? Especially if their job requires hours daily on the computer. The easiest way to prevent neck pain is to figure out the cause and in my profession, people sitting hours on end, at a computer, seems to top the cake for neck pain. Some people get so accustomed to the pain and tightness they actually ignore it until it is far advanced. Some causes include poor posture, by which workspace ergonomics such as poor positioning of computer keyboards and monitors are quite capable in contributing to neck pain. Sleep issues become an issue when the neck is sore and tight and there is an ongoing quest to find the right pillow to get one through the night. Don’t forget that most all of us tend to look down at our cell phones much of the day putting maximum stress on the muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons of the neck. When the neck is the issue, talk to your chiropractor about how to stop and prevent these types of overuse injury!!
