Do you take good care of your neck? Your neck, while often overlooked, plays a fundamentally important role in your overall health and wellness.

How is Your Posture?
Keeping your neck and spine in alignment is a good idea no matter who you are. A key way to be self-aware of your posture is to avoid slouching when you sit. If you work a sedentary job, make sure you have an ergonomically designed chair, and sit up straight with your lower back aligned with the back of your chair. Avoid sitting for too long a period at once, and get up every hour or so to stretch your neck and shoulder muscles. This will help reduce inflammation and tight muscles all around your body, especially your neck, shoulders, and lower back.
Do You Go to the Chiropractor?
You don’t have to wait until your back or neck are in pain to see a chiropractor. The development of stiffness and soreness can be a cumulative thing. Seeing a chiropractor for an adjustment on a regular basis can help keep things aligned, while also minimizing your risk for the all-too-common back and shoulder problems.
If you think you may have injured your neck or the surrounding areas, it’s a good idea to make an appointment with your doctor. This can give you a better idea on how to address the problem and find effective remedy solutions.
