Why am I sore by the end of the day?

Imagine carrying a bowling ball around all day, but instead of carrying it close to your body to minimize strain, you hold it out in front of you.  OUCH! Walking around for hours holding a heavy ball like that would be exhausting.  This is similar to your posture being out of alignment.  Your head weighs about the same as the average bowling ball.  When your head is misaligned forward, your muscles have to work extra hard to hold your head up .

Forward Head Posture is similar to carrying a bowling ball out in front of you.  This is a root cause of muscle fatigue, spasm and physical stress on your neck and shoulders.  Over time the stress accumulates and you may develop some of the following symptoms:

  • Unable to fully turn your head sideways or up and down
  • Grinding sounds when turning the head
  • Headaches
  • Burning around the shoulder blades
  • Numbness and tingling in the arms and hands

Call the Chait Chiropractic Center at 941-371-1070 to see how chiropractic adjustments and incorporating postural retraining techniques help reduce and remove physical stresses on your spine.

Let’s work on bringing your head back an inch or two to help remove the weight of a bowling ball off your shoulders!
