Wonder why neck and shoulder injuries and pain are on the rise?
Not a surprise if we take a step back and watch all the people around us sitting in their cars with their head down as they text – hopefully in a parking lot! Or, having to get out of the way of people walking along looking at their smartphones instead of where they are going.

And, cellphones aren’t the only cause for our pain in the neck. Auto manufactures’ make car seats that actually hurt my back when I sit in them; furniture makers advertise recliners like they’re the best thing since sliced bread, but ask your chiropractor about yours and she’ll suggest that you take it to the dump!
So, what’s the answer? Well, we all love our new technology, and it’s so much more convenient than the older phones were, so how about we train ourselves to do a few simple neck stretches throughout the day to help our muscles relax and stay healthy? This is a simple solution that doesn’t require you to stop using your beloved technology!
Get out your appointment book right now, and make a daily appointment with yourself for stretching your neck. In fact, make two – once in the morning and again in the afternoon. You deserve a few minutes a day for self-care!
