Let’s call it what it is and replace the word “aching,” with “screaming”; it is actually your neck telling you that you are letting it down. So many of our daily actions train our neck muscles into holding patterns that are actually extremely harmful to our spinal health. At Community Chiropractic and Acupuncture of Park Slope, it is our responsibility to use our expertise to help people train their neck muscles out of these unhealthy holding patterns and replace them with patterns that promote balance and reduce tension.
Always pay attention to your posture by performing posture resets as often as is possible. When you feel your head creeping forward, choose to realize that this is responsible for your aching, stiff neck at the end of the day; choose to reset your head atop the spine and give your neck a quick stretch. These little actions add up to make a world of difference in your spinal health.
