How Posture Complements Neck Alignment Stability

Woman Suffering From Neck Pain

Remember when your mom would always bug you about having bad posture and moved your shoulders back and told you to not slouch? She was definitely onto something and it wasn’t just to annoy you. When you’re feeling that headache come on or having neck problems, this could be a result in having bad posture. Having bad posture and slouching can create your head to be more forward and this causes your neck to overwork itself, causing many issues such as headaches and other neck issues. Top Cary chiropractor Tri Myers of Omega Chiropractic Center - Sports Performance & Nutrition explains how to avoid this tension.

Your muscles, nerves, connective tissues, joints and spinal disks are all affected by bad posture. Your body is not neutral and aligned properly so this creates an imbalance which can lead to a handful of bad side effects. Bad posture can actually worsen TMJ because when you have bad posture this again makes your head more forward which puts an excessive amount of tension on the jaw muscles causes worse TMJ problems and neck problems.
