Posture and Pain: Why does my neck and back hurt?
Abnormal posture creates abnormal stress on the bones and ligaments of the neck and back. The muscles spasm in order to bring stability to a spine that has been damaged by one traumatic event (car accident or fall) or a series of sustained repetitive traumas (computer use, office work, video games etc). The result is a variety of muscle and ligament disorders including neck pain, headaches, mid back pain, shoulder pain and stiffness, jaw pain (TMJ), low back pain, fatigue, and anxiety. The posture, however, is most often the root cause of these maladies. Come find out what normal posture looks like, how poor posture occurs, and what you can do end a lifetime of pain.
