Why do you have Neck Pain?

Posted by in Neck Pain Essentials |

 First of all I want you to know that neck and upper back pain are generally easy to fix. By learning why you are having pain in the first place we can then set about teaching you how to fix your pain and prevent it from happening in the future. Sound simple? It is.

The next time you have a look around an office building, a building site, a school, and a bus stop, on a train or wherever. You will see people slouching in their seats, slouching over their computers, lifting with bent backs and doing a wide range of daily tasks using bad posture.  These same people will also more than likely be suffering from back, neck and/or shoulder pain (or all three). They may have constant pain or suffer from ongoing bouts of recurrent pain.  They will probably then go to get treatment from a chiropractor, a physiotherapist or a masseur or if these don’t work perhaps an acupuncturist. They may try a yoga class, or the gym or Pilates and try to strengthen and stretch their muscles only to find that their pain comes back. How can this be they ask? The great mystery really is no mystery. As I have mentioned before, treating your own neck pain and making sure it does not come back is easy, you just need to know how. The vast majority of neck pain is from poor posture! If you continue to slouch at your chairs, or at the computer, or whilst you eat, or continue to lift poorly or stand poorly you will not have removed the cause of your pain and thus remain in pain.

A tip for neck pain relief-check your hands.

Posted by in Neck Pain quick tips |

Here’s  an easy way to give you relief from your neck pain and also back pain. If you are sitting at a computer you should be sitting with good posture, in other words not slouching. As i have said before, look AT your computer not INTO it. Correct your posture and your pains will ‘magically’ disappear. So, how about those hands of yours?

If you get neck pain at the computer i can absolutely bet that you are slouching and one of the best ways to counteract this is to check if your hands are above or beyond your knees when you are at the computer. Your hands should  before your knees  if your posture is correct. If you are slouching, your arms are reaching forward and your hands are going to be beyond your knees.

The major cause of neck pain- why you are suffering right now.

Posted by in Neck Pain Essentials |

Look at the weight and strain on the neck structures-thats why treatments nor exercises will make you pain free permanently

What is the major reason that exercises for neck pain do not remove your neck pain permanently? Why does massage, chiropractic, Yoga, acupuncture help you only temporarily? Why do you wake up suddenly with neck pain and cant turn your head?

Look no further than your foward head posture.

When you sit poorly and stand poorly you create stresses so great for your neck that it is virtually  impossible for you not to suffer from neck and upper back pain. Every inch your head travels forward of the central position creates and extra 10lbs of weight on your neck structures. This means that if you are sitting here reading this without sitting upright( think-if you were to drop a rock from your chin would it drop onto your chest or onto the floor?) you are probably putting anywhere between 20-40lbs of strain onto your neck.
