Too Much Sitting Can Be a Pain In The Neck 

 January 29, 2016

By  Dr. Todd Osborne


We’ve all read how sitting all day, for our jobs or otherwise, can be very detrimental to our health in many ways – increased risk of cardiovascular disease, muscle degeneration, and poor circulation to name a few.  Extended periods of sitting can, of course, lead to all kinds of aches and pains in the body as well.

It’s easy for many people to associate low back pain, mid back pain, and even hand or wrist pain with sitting for long periods of time, but neck pain can also be a big repercussion of lots of time spent in the chair or on the sofa.  If your job requires lots of seated time at a desk or in front of a computer, it may be contributing to the pain you’re feeling in the neck, jaw, and head.  Often, people who work at a desk look downwards at their reading materials or computer screen.  Cradling the telephone between your ear and shoulder can also create imbalances in the neck leading to pain.

There are some easy accommodations that can be made to try to remedy some of these issues – standing desks and a headset to name a couple.  It is also important to have the structure of the neck evaluated by an upper cervical chiropractor, especially for folks who spend their workdays in a seated position.  A misalignment of the vertebrae in the upper neck can be the source of chronic neck pain.   


No matter how many modifications you may make to your desk or workstation, if that misalignment is present, the pain will not resolve.  As upper cervical specific chiropractors, Drs. Christi and Todd Osborne work to gently restore normal alignment to the vertebrae in the neck.  By doing so, the root cause of the neck pain is corrected, also allowing normal neurological function to be restored.
