Sitting at your desk in one static position, or working in a career that doesn’t allow for frequent changes in upper body posture can cause latent tension to build up in your neck, shoulders, and upper back. Without some form of treatment, remediation, and further prevention these tension issues can lead to chronic chiropractic conditions that could affect your work performance or hamper your overall quality of life.
In a situation like this, you should consider scheduling an appointment at the Health and Wellness clinic in Layton, Utah.
Once our chiropractors Daniel Hendricks, D.C. and Spencer Rollins, D.C. have assessed the nature and severity of the problem, we can develop an effective treatment and prevention plan.
This might call for a basic chiropractic adjustment or other treatment measures. Afterward, we might also recommend some basic daily stretches or exercises as part of a prevention plan.
In some cases, stretches and exercises that employ resistance bands can help strengthen stabilizer muscles, address chronic posture issues, or serve to alleviate newly developing tension in the neck, upper back, and shoulders.
This might include standing shoulder rows, standing resistance band extensions, shoulder abduction exercises, and shoulder flexion exercises. Your chiropractor can help you understand the necessary form and repetition schemes necessary to facilitate the treatment and remediation process.
Preventative treatment might also involve making changes to some of your daily habit, as well as performing other exercises and stretches at key times.
If you live in the Layton, Utah, area and you have been struggling with chronic tension problems in the neck, upper back, or shoulders, you should call 801-544-4333 to schedule an appointment at the Health and Wellness clinic.
