Stiff neck and headaches
Have you ever woken up with a stiff and painful neck? Does your job cause you to sit and stare at a screen all day? At the end of you work day is you neck sore & tight?
If you answered YES to any of these questions and you may be suffering from neck pain and headaches.
The human head is approximately ten pounds in weight. We use our neck and back musculature to keep our head in proper posture and alignment. Neck pain is caused from a multitude of reasons: neck muscles being overused for long periods of time, poor posture, and muscle imbalance.
Being aware of your posture can significantly help reduce neck pain. A forward head and rounded shoulders causes the neck muscles to overworked in order to keep the head to hold up against gravity. It is always important to make sure you head, neck, and shoulders are in proper alignment and posture as it will help the muscles to relax and keep them well balanced.
Stretches and physical therapy at cornerstone can help elevate your pain. If you are experiencing any of these conditions contact us to setup an appointment.
