Using common sense regarding the human body, we can all agree that "If you don't use it - you lose it." Today, many people are turning to sports and exercise for a variety of reasons - and they understand that being active is an important part of life. Some want to avoid early degeneration of joints while others want to maintain a healthy weight. In any case, there's no wrong reason for wanting to stay active.
At Chiro Clinic Moncton, we encourage our patients to adopt healthier lifestyles by adding individualized exercise into their busy lives. You don't need to be a super athlete to start being active. We Can Help! Knowing what to do and NOT do is very important - especially if pain or stiffness is involved. After all, some exercise is beneficial to some but detrimental to others.

Obviously there are several possible causes ranging from sinister life threatening strokes to simple and benign tension-type headaches. And yes, those annoying tension-type headaches can certainly be aggravated and brought on by poor posture, particularly with forward rolled shoulders when sitting at a desk for example. When the upper back rolls forward into a "kyphotic" posture, the head translates forward placing unnecessary strain on the neck musculature. These muscles get overworked, leading to tightness, which subsequently reduces overall joint motion of the neck itself, and pain is referred to the head. Saying "just sit up straight" to these pa...
