Neck and upper back soreness, tightness, and pain is one of the most common complaints in patients who work long hours at a desk. Poor posture while seated leads to forward head carriage and reversal of the normal cervical lordotic curve. This structural change also causes a muscular condition called Upper-Crossed Syndrome where the muscles of the front of the neck and chest become shortened and weak, and the muscles of the back of the neck and shoulders become lengthened and tight.

How can Chiropractic help?

Adjustments to the region where the cervical spine and thoracic spine meet, called the C/T junction, restores proper motion in the joints, reduces pain and stiffness, and helps reduce anterior translation of the head.
