Office Chair Advice

Most of you are probably reading this from an office chair. That forward leaning posture you’re likely sitting in is actually really awful for you and presents consequences for more than just the back and spinal column. When the front body is compressed from hunching over for long periods of time, the internal organs, digestive system and lungs become burdened.


Stiff Neck

Typically, a stiff neck is characterized by soreness and difficulty moving the neck, especially when trying to turn the head to the side. As if a stiff neck isn’t already just the worst, it may be accompanied by headache, neck pain, shoulder and/or arm pain and cause the individual to turn their entire body when trying to look sideways or backwards as opposed to just the neck

Stiff Neck Symptoms

Stiff neck symptoms can last anywhere from a couple of days to a week and pain can range from annoyingly mild to extremely painful and limiting.
