Treating Neckpain

Relating to those with “nonspecific” discomfort – pain not associated with injury, disorder, or tissue degeneration – a recent study in the journal Spine, researchers examined 40 adults with no prior neck injuries or treatment, to study the structural composition of the neck and its relation to pain.

Fashion Style For Work

Latest Trends and Fashions Can Be Tomorrow’s Pain

Fashion is a big part of our culture and we all enjoy following the latest trends and fashions. However, designers generally don’t take into consideration comfort and function, but favor style. We often see women wearing high heels to round out their outfit, but serious discomfort and problems can follow. High heels alter your balanced position which, not only, can affect your feet, ankles, and knees, but can affect your low back! You see, our musculo-skeletal system is like a linked sling of muscles. When one is affected, the next is affected as you may visualize a row of dominoes falling. We can eventually feel the effects of foot problems in our neck! Women are not the only ones sacrificing comfort for style. Clothing can often be restrictive­ tight pants or skirts ­ and can throw off simple tasks such as sitting, bending, and walking. This restricts you from moving comfortably and can result in poor misalignment of your spine. Another unhealthy, yet very common, fashion statement are handbags, backpacks, and computer bags. We carry too much with us and don’t…
