Choice PT: Life Doesn't Have to be A Pain in the Neck

Move to Live Your Resource to Moving Well and Living Life


(continued from outside)

All of these things could be a result of your own personal neck compensations. One of the easiest things you can do to relieve stress from your neck is improve your posture. Imagine your head is a bowling ball (I know, bear with me). If you allow your posture to round forward, the weight of your bowling ball head will put much more stress on your neck joints and muscles than if it is aligned directly over the rest of your spine. Moral of the story, your mom was right…no slouching. Have a great month and if you have any questions regarding neck pain, posture or my undying love of analogies give me a call or shoot me an email!

Pumpkins, hay rides, leaf peeping (never knew that was a thing before moving to the Capital District), and of course yard clean ups are all things to look forward to! In this month’s edition of Move to Live we’re continuing to focus on the space between your head and your shoulders. Whether you’re carving your neighborhoods fines pumpkin, leaf peeping while enjoying cider and donuts on a hay ride, or getting ready for fall clean up your neck is involved a great deal. Constantly feeling knots or tightness in your neck/shoulder muscles? Trouble fully turning your head to one side or the other while driving? Always feeling like you need to stretch or crack your neck after reading or working on the computer/iPad?

Hope you enjoy! Joe
