I am thankful you're here to help a person back to one's feet. Without you, I truly would be in a wheelchair. Thank you.

Maintain Good Posture

What is Bad About Poor Posture?

Poor posture can result from straining forward while working on your computer, leaning down while working on hobbies or tasks for work, or just sitting slouched forward. Staying in these positions for extended periods of time can put stress on the muscles in your neck and shoulders, which can cause headaches, neck pain and upper back pain.

Reduce the likelihood of experiencing pain by standing up straight, or taking a break from the position that is putting stress on your neck and upper back, every 30-60 minutes. Perfoming shoulder shrugs and retractions while standing or sitting up straight will also help take stress off of the muscles in the neck and upper back.

Stretch Often

Perform shoulder shrugs and retractions every hour when maintaining a prolonged position. Perform 20 repetitions of each motion at a time.
