Stiff or sore neck? According to our team at our Family Chiropractic Clinic in Hounslow, there are three things you could be doing that could be harming your neck.
Sitting at a computer
Sitting down puts around 40% more pressure on your spine than standing. And the likelihood is you won’t be thinking about your posture when you’re working hard towards a deadline!
You’re feeling stressed
Feeling stressed or anxious can have a negative impact on your physical health. Long term or short term stress can cause the muscles in your neck to tense up and tighten. And muscles that are regularly tight can cause neck pain.
Your mattress is old
If your mattress or pillow is more than 7 years old, then it’s probably time to get shopping!
Your neck is one of the most important parts of your spine. Make sure you give it the care and attention it deserves.
