Neck pain is a far too common complaint of many patients in pain treatment centers. The pain associated often comes from one of two sources: disc injuries and poor posture.
Unfortunately, our society has many Americans exhibiting poor posture on a daily basis. When you work a desk job or like to lay on the couch relaxing, your shoulders are almost always hunching forward. This position forces your upper back to round, which shoots your head forward and out of alignment.
Your head is meant to be positioned in a way so your torso can take the weight off your spine. If your head juts forward, the only thing keeping it from breaking off is your neck, and over time this leads to chronic pain and injury. There is, however, a fix: practice better posture. Get yourself in the proper alignment, and everything else will fall into place.
While this one-step solution will help relieve many of the pain symptoms people experience, it isn’t always so simple. Sometimes, there are actual injuries that need to be addressed, and before you go fusing your vertebrae together, you should seriously consider Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers to treat your condition.
