Sitting all day can be a real pain in the neck—literally!!!The truth is that looking down at our phones and screens tends to put us in a, well, awkward posture—specifically, forward head posture… Sounds odd, feels worse…Have you ever been to a nursing home, take a look at where that head forward posture will lead you..

To your body, it feels like your head is playing a game of “How far forward can I go without toppling over?” Spoiler: It’s not a fun game…. Back to the nursing home analogy… you can change and avoid that NOW!!!

This techy head tilt is a shortcut to stiffness, aches, and all sorts of “ouch” moments… And if you’re one of the many, most all of us, who live on their devices, it’s especially important to have your next adjustment on the books!!! And if you have never been adjusted or had your posture assessed, now is the TIME!!!
Our go-to quick fix??? Stand up, stretch, and move around every 30 minutes.. Yes, really! It’s like hitting the reset button on that build up of stress, strain, and tension in the upper back and neck.. Make it a daily habit so your body can thank you every day!!! Pro tip.. Use that device to set a alert and remind you to get up and MOVE..

On top of that, strengthening the trapezius muscles that span your neck, shoulders, and back and getting adjusted are two other game-changing ways you can combat “Tech Neck”, so get to it!!
Until next time, stay health my friends….
