Why does one experience pain and / or loss of focus?
Weakened back and neck muscles and sitting at a desk or on a couch improperly setup, for hours at a time, will produce forward head leaning and a hunched upper back, leading to: ¨Text Neck¨ , and associated pains such as neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome and reduced mobility, to name a few.
A 45 degree head tilt puts 17 kg of extra pressure on the neck discs and joints. The immediate effect is a pulling of the spinal cord and strained muscles.
This may result is cognitive decline, loss of focus, brain fatigue, low mood, lack of empathy. We may also see attention deficit, impaired learning, increased impulsivity, sleep problems…
When problems do occur, you need a comprehensive set of solutions:
One of the key solutions is to Assess the Brain´s Posture Control System. The posture control system, is the "software" & neurocircuitry that allows you to be able to sit and stand upright by counteracting the effects of gravity.Once the weaker links are identified within that system, target specific work or school posture correction exercises are provided, along with learning and incorporating new posture and brain fitness habits.
Gentle Chiropractic to “unlock” the spine, ensure optimal flexibility & energy, and to power-up your posture muscles. The spine is the ¨tower¨that enables you to be upright, otherwise you would only be a set of legs and arms. Furthermore it is the bridge between the brain and the body. It needs to be properly maintained.
