Do you sit at a desk in front of a computer all day? If so...this may be contributing to your headaches and neck pain. Our bodies are simply not designed to be sitting for long periods without exercise.
Sure...you can get yourself a good ergonomic chair, and learn how to setup your workstation...but nothing beats exercise to help pass off the stress that builds up inside your neck and shoulder muscles from hours in front of a computer.
Chiropractic adjustments can also help reduce muscle tension in the neck...since the neck muscles have to work harder when the spinal bones are out of place. And muscle tension from work stress and poor posture can cause misalignments of the spine.
I purposely setup my chiropractic clinics in the San Francisco Financial District, so that we could help stressed out office workers and executives deal with chronic back, neck, and wrist pain.
We created a no wait, walk in, no hassles clinic at the SF Embarcadero Center, right in the thick of the corporate jungle. One thing for sure...the patients that exercise on a regular basis...and also eat right...tend to be the healthiest. Add regular chiropractic adjustments into the mix and things get even better.
So sure...long hours in front of a computer can cause neck pain and headaches...but some lifestyle tweaks and visits to the chiropractor can help smooth out the ride.
