Many patients come into our Mankato chiropractic office looking for relief from headaches and neck pain, and often times we find that these patients have poor posture that causes increased strain on the neck. Spending long periods of time in front of the computer or television can affect how we hold our heads, and with each inch forward our head goes, an extra 10 pounds of weight is put on our necks! As you can imagine, this can cause severe neck pain and headaches along with the numbness in the arms and hands, breathing problems and more issues shown in the image below.
As opposed to covering up these symptoms with medication, chiropractic care will target the cause, which is forward head posture, by making adjustments to the spine. Make an appointment with us to check your posture and your spine!
