Pain In The Neck – Bad Posture To Blame?
November 18, 2013

Bad Posture- back pain

What’s Causing Your Pain?

In today’s work environment, posture might not seem all that important. Many US workers spend countless hours seated in front of a computers without considering the impact on their own health. After all, being seated in front of a computer or standing at a retail station doesn’t sound hazardous to one’s health, does it?

Quite the contrary! A bad posture when sitting or standing at work can bring agonizing pain. When you don’t keep your posture aligned, it can ultimately lead to perpetual feelings of sickness and muscle cramps. That’s because when you slouch while standing or sitting, you’re contracting muscles that can conflict with digestion and blood flow throughout your body. Bad posture in your computer chair can contract muscles in your neck or back that can hinder blood flow, giving you neck pain, lower back pain or throbbing headaches.

The Domino Effect

I’m sure you’ve heard that you should move around every half an hour or so, but because it interferes with our productivity, it’s often ignored. Unfortunately, there’s a domino effect when you ignore good advice. Neck pain, muscle tension, headaches will have you reaching for the over-the-counter medication to get quick relief. But, over-the-counter medication consumed in large quantities over long periods of time can affect the way your body absorbs nutrients during digestion.
