  • Loss of Neck Curve: The Source of Neck and Back Pain

    Wondering what the source of your mysterious neck and back pain might be?  It turns out that the curve in your neck might be causing those aches and pains – or rather, the loss of a healthy neck curve.The loss of a cervical curve – also known as cervical kyphosis – is a condition that’s caused by bad posture. Everyone should have a curve in their neck, as it helps keep the body balanced.  What’s more, this small curve helps the head stay balanced on top of the spine, thus preventing it from falling forward.  When a person slouches or juts their head too far forward, the curve is diminished. This can cause significant strain and pain for the neck muscles. In some severe causes, this can even cause paralysis.

    "Posture Pump Disc Hydrator During Medical Traction"

    When bad posture is maintained for too long, this leads to the development of cervical kyphosis. This condition describes the process that occurs when the neck curve begins to straighten. In some causes, the neck curve can actually reverse, causing significant spinal issues.

    How do you know if you have cervical kyphosis?  Take a look at the following symptoms:

    - Chronic neck pain

    - Headaches

    - Reduced range of motion in the neck

    - Weakness in the arms and legs

    - Loss of grip strength

    - Difficulty walking

    - Difficulty with bladder and bowels

    - From the side, your ear canal does not line up with your shoulder

    In extreme cases, paralysis from the neck down can occur. If you suspect you have cervical kyphosis, it’s important to make an appointment with a chiropractor. During this appointment, your chiropractor can take X-rays, go through a physical examination, and perform other tests to determine your diagnosis and, if necessary, your treatment options.

  • What Affects Your Posture?

    Remember how your mother used to remind you to sit up straight?  It turns out, she wasn’t just reminding you of good manners; she was actually looking out for your posture.

    Poor Posture

    Since humans decided to stand on two feet, our posture has played an important role in the overall health of a person.  Posture provides a sound glimpse of both physical and emotional health issues that a person could be facing.  For example, if someone’s slumped over or has bad posture, you might be quick to assume that person lacks confidence or strength.  If a person stands up or sits up straight, you’re likely to think of that person as confident, capable, and friendly.

    We’re hardwired to look at a person’s posture for a quick assessment of his or her health.  As it turns out, we’re right to do so, as the positioning of each vertebrae in the spine is determined by a person’s skeletal alignment.  This alignment can be impacted by a number of health issues, and even by a person’s mental or emotional well-being.

     

    So what affects your posture – and what can you do to correct poor posture?

      - Your general spinal health can impact your posture. Spinal diseases can play a critical role in the alignment of your spine.  Spinal injuries can also throw off spinal alignment, leading to poor posture.

      - Biomechanical forces can, over long periods of time, impact your spinal health. For example, if you sit slouched over at work all day or you slump while you’re on the computer, it’s likely that your spine is becoming misshapen due to repeated and exaggerated positioning.

      - The strength and flexibility of the muscles surrounding the spine can also play a role on spinal alignment. The stronger those back muscles are, the more easy it is to ensure proper posture.

      - Other ways your posture can be impacted include injury, sleeping patterns, and other health conditions.

  • How Tech Neck/Texting Neck Affects Your Spine

    woman textingTexting: It’s just a harmless, fun, and fast way to stay in touch with friends and family.  You get so many texts on a daily basis, you hardly think twice when you bend your head over your smartphone, furiously typing your answer back.
    But did you know that this seemingly innocuous habit could be one of the biggest causes of your neck and back pain?
    According to an article published in Surgical Technology International, the average person juts their head forward between 15 to 60 degrees to read and respond to texts on a phone.  The amount of force exerted on the neck is surprising: if you bend your head down by 15 degrees, you’re putting 27 pounds of pressure on your neck.  At the opposite end of the spectrum, you’re placing a whopping 60 pounds of pressure on your neck if you’re bending your head by sixty degrees.
    To put that in perspective, that’s the average weight of an eight-year-old.  And if you’re texting non-stop – well, you might as well just give piggyback rides at the playground.
    Think you don’t text much?  Think again: The average American spends about an hour on their smartphones each day.  Whether it’s texting friends or reading an article on the train to work, this constant activity can add up to serious neck and back pain.

    So how can you reduce the amount of pressure you exert on your neck?

    • Limit the amount of time you spend on your smartphone. Designate certain times of the day for responding to texts.  Minimize these times as much as possible, as this can help reduce the amount of pressure on your neck.
    • Hold your phone up more toward your face. If you hold it at eye level, you can reduce the amount of pressure on your neck.
    • Strengthen your back and neck muscles. Get 30 minutes of cardio activity each day, followed by light strength training.
