Many clients seek out our practice to reduce pain and regain their quality of life.
Often, they are not aware that their body is out of alignment.
When one aspect of the body is altered, it changes the function of the muscles and joints that surround that site.
For most of us, our work week involves sitting at a desk in front of a computer.
This position drives the shoulder forward, forcing the upper back to round, and bringing the head and neck into a flexed position.
In order to not develop chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain here is a simple trick to see if you body is aligned:
Stand vertically at the wall with the back of your head, shoulders, hips, and feet touching the wall.
In this position, is your head able to touch the wall? Or is there tension in your neck from bringing the head back?
For every inch forward that your head is from the wall, it increases the weight of your head on your neck by 10 lbs!
With the Egoscue method, we can reduce the forward head positioning and neck strain by getting to the root of the problem in the body.
