Neck Pain Due to Bad Posture? Chiropractors Can Help
One of the leading causes of neck pain among today's adults is simply from bad posture. The rise of digital careers and the need to spend increasing amounts of time in front of a computer worsened this condition.
At the rise of the Covid-19 pandemic, millions of people were required to work from home. This meant sitting in front of their computers for eight or more hours a day. With these increased stationary hours, more and more people are noticing neck pain. Fortunately, relief is easier and closer than you think.
How Neck Pain from Poor Posture Happens
Poor posture adds stress and tension to the neck and spine, which tightens muscles and causes overcompensation. Think about it: as you sit at your computer, your neck begins to lean forward toward your screen.
Even if it's subtle, it's happening. The lean and weight of your head place additional tension against the base of your neck. As you hold this position for hours on end, the weight-bearing pressure strains the muscles and contributes to the tissues' aching within your neck.
Chiropractic Care for Bad Posture
With chiropractic care, you can find relief for your neck pain. First, as the treatments work to strengthen your spine and the muscles and tendons connected around it, your posture starts to improve. You avoid hunching over and leaning as far toward your computer as you used to. Additionally, working through the tissues and tendons in your neck helps circulate blood flow and relieve the pressure on key joints. The result is gradual neck pain relief.
