Neck and Back Pain

  • How Poor Posture Causes Neck Aches and Upper Back Pain

    Ever wake up with unexpected neck pain?  Find that your back or neck is practically screaming in pain by the time you’re done with a long day at work?  It’s not stress or your busy lifestyle that’s causing those aches and pains… It could be your posture.  Poor Posture Causes Neck Aches and Upper Back Pain.  That’s right – your mother’s reminders to sit up straight were actually some of the best ways to preserve your back and neck health.  Poor Posture is one of the most common causes of neck aches and  upper back pain.

    Since the neck and skull sit on top of the spine, the curvature of the spine can cause the head’s position to become askew. This causes considerable strain on the neck muscles, which in turn can contribute to neck aches, pains, and even chronic headaches.

    There are a number of muscles that make up the neck – and when these muscles are strained or become tight, they can cause Cervical and upper back pain, in addition to headaches.  These muscles include:

    • Scalene and suboccipital muscles (these help rotate the head)
    • Pectoralis minor muscles (these muscles can be found at the upper part of the chest)
    • Subscapularis muscles (larger muscles which are found around the shoulder joints)
    • Levator scapulae muscles (these muscles are located at the back and sides of the neck)

     

    More Info: Cervical Spine Anatomy and Neck Pain

    When alignment of the spine is off (for example, you’re slouching forward while sitting), this puts a considerable amount of pressure on your neck muscles. Continuous strain can lead to chronic neck and back pain – and the only solution to this kind of pain is to improve one’s posture.

    The most common posture that causes neck and back pain is when a person is sitting with their head and shoulders pushed forward.  This posture is most common when someone is sitting in front of a computer, with your head jutted forward to read the screen.  Since this posture is most common in the workplace, it’s important for people to remain aware of how they’re sitting, and to make corrections whenever possible.

  • Dental Professionals - Work Related Neck Aches & Back Pain

    Dentists, Periodontists, Endodontists, Orthodontists and Hygienists have to deal with occupational related neck and back pain. Dentists spend most of the work day hovering over patients in various positions that do not work well for their necks, shoulders and backs. Sometimes they are in these positions for hours.

    The incidence of neck pain among dentists and hygienists is common with as many as 71% of Dentists and 82% of Hygienists reporting work related neck and back pain. In dentistry, the upper trapezius muscle is the culprit in a myriad of head and neck pain syndromes. The delivery of dental care places high demands on this muscle and can result in a painful condition called trapezius myalgia.

    Symptoms include pain, spasms, or tenderness in the upper trapezius muscle. Trigger points in this muscle result in headaches behind the eye, into the temple, and in the back of the neck.

    The forward flexion and lateral flexion/rotation (the common movements of dentists) compromise the soft tissue around the neck, creating and developing imbalances, and reducing  neuromuscular efficiency

    Here are some more recommendations specifically for the dental profession:

    • Don't position the patient too high
    • Use properly selected magnification
    • Use armrests
    • Take Frequent Breaks & Manage Stress Appropriately
    • Use Posture Pump® Disc Hydrators for relief of chronic pain and stiffness

     

     

    The dentists should not live their professional life in discomfort. Unfortunately, no professional dentist has escaped debilitating neck and back pain issues during his or her career.

    Most ergonomic injuries in dentistry result from counteracting torque for prolonged periods of time. Torque or “rotational force” occurs when a system becomes unbalanced.

    • The main culprit in torque generation as it relates to operator position is our own head. The human head is 8 percent of our total body weight.
    • The average man’s head is 14 pounds and the average woman’s head is 11 pounds.

    To achieve a direct line of vision into the oral cavity, operators are required to lean or tilt forward in some manner. This is a delivery requirement even when using a mouth mirror and loupes, although both implements can decrease the degree of forward lean or tilt, which is helpful to reduce torque.

    Two significant types of operator forward lean or tilt occur commonly in treatment delivery.

    • The first type is often described as head declination with the fulcrum point positioned in the cervical area of the neck.
    • Second type of operator forward lean or tilt produces an even more dramatic comparison. It is common to observe operators leaning forward from the pelvis as much or even more than 30 degrees to gain a more favorable vision line into the oral cavity.

    Exercise and physical therapy should be part of every dentist’s routine. Awkward and torque producing operator positions resisted by prolonged static muscle contractions are the main occupational hazard to a dentist’s physical well being.

    Dental professionals can get relief from work related neck and back pain with Posture Pump® Disc Hydrators - they help correct stiff and poor posture.  Posture Pump® shapes and restores the cervical curve, which is vital to maintaining good posture. Posture Pump® products are designed to decompress, shape, and lubricate the spine, which can help alleviate the symptoms caused by neck and back conditions. Posture Pump® shapes and restores the cervical curve, restores ranges of motion, and gets to the cause of neck and back pain stiffness fast!

  • See What Chiropractor/Author/Speaker and Wellness Leader, Dr. Fabrizio “Fab” Mancini, is Saying About Posture Pump®


    Dr. Fab Mancini is America’s #1 Healthy Living Media Expert, a world renowned Chiropractor, Hay House’s international best-selling author of The Power of Self-Healing, and host of his popular radio show, Self-Healing with Dr. Fab. He is also the best-selling author of Chicken Soup for the Chiropractic Soul, an internationally acclaimed educator, business leader, speaker, and President Emeritus of Parker University. You may have seen him recently on an episode of The Drs on CBS where he discussed the incredible benefits of chiropractic care.

    We caught up with Dr. Fab several months ago at the Tennessee Chiropractic Association Annual Convention, and he was kind enough to take a moment to express his own enthusiasm for Posture Pump®.

    It didn’t take long after starting his practice that Dr. Fab noticed the majority of his patients were suffering from forward head posture. While these patients may not have known the correct terminology to describe their own condition, they were acutely aware of the headaches, soreness, and painful stiffness that manifested as side effects of forward head posture.

    After inquiring of his colleagues what methods they were incorporating into their practice to alleviate pain and discomfort from forward head posture on their own patients, Dr. Fab discovered Posture Pump®.

    After trying Posture Pump® for himself, he experienced firsthand the deep corrective relief that Posture Pump® Disc Hydrators® have been providing since 1994. Not long after that, Dr. Fab began recommending Posture Pump® to all of his patients, and noticed that in addition to an improvement in their symptoms, their chiropractic adjustments were also holding longer after treatment with the product.

    To this day, Dr. Fab recommends everyone, from patients to Chiropractors, try Posture Pump® and experience the real benefits for themselves!

  • 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.

    That’s precisely where the Posture Pump® Dual Disc Hydrator® comes into play! Posture Pump® shapes and restores the cervical curve, which is vital to maintaining good posture. Posture Pump® is an online retailer that specializes in neck and back-related pain products.  Posture Pump® products are designed to decompress, shape, and lubricate the spine, which can help alleviate the symptoms caused by neck and back conditions. Posture Pump® shapes and restores the cervical curve, restores ranges of motion, and gets to the cause of neck and back pain stiffness fast!

  • 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.
