If you only do one thing for yourself today, let it be that you raise up your monitor!
The average adult spends 8 hours a day looking at the computer. Right now, as you read this, where is your head? Is it tilted down and pulled forward? I bet it is.
The forward pull of your head puts stress on your vertebrae in your lower neck. This contributes to degenerative disc disease and other degenerative neck problems. This posture also causes the muscles of your upper back to overwork to counterbalance the pull of gravity on on your forward head.
Are you shoulders hunched? I bet they are. Your forward head is often accompanied by forward shoulders and a rounded upper back. This not only feeds into the neck problem but can also cause shoulder pain.
So do two things. (I doubled it) Raise your monitor and make a chiropractic appointment today! 803-807-9960
