When you’re in an office setting in front of your computer, a lot of problems that arise are in your neck and your shoulders and your back.
So posture becomes a big part of your daily experience at the computer. You want to stay tall; you want to keep your back straight; you want to lean back against the chair and keep your shoulders back. Basically think tall in front of the computer screen, and you can avoid neck, shoulder, and back pain.
Often they hunch their shoulders forward, they jut their chin towards the screen, they basically hunch forward and roll their back. They get away from the back of the chair. They create space between their low back and the back of the chair and that causes a lot of discomfort.
When sitting at a desk and we’re out of position, there’s a lot of excessive force put through the neck and through the back. This force causes a pull on the muscles and a pull on the joint.
So your muscles try to push you back, but they can’t because of your position, and because of gravity, and the forces of sitting causes a lot of pain and over a long term period causes a lot of dysfunction.
A chiropractor can help with neck pain and low back pain by stretches the muscles, showing postural corrections, education, working on the muscles to stretch them out, and then of course a chiropractic adjustment, which will help with range of motion and free some stress from the muscle and joints.

If you’re experiencing neck pain, the best thing to do is to contact your chiropractor. Full examination would allow the chiropractor to see what is the problem and then apply the techniques to fix it and put you on a path to better health.
