Greater Moncton is facing a new rising problem - TEXT NECK. With an increasing dependence on modern technology, we seem to spending prolonged periods of time on our devices, and with damaging posture.
Moncton chiropractors, physiotherapists, and massage therapists are seeing a plethora of patients seeking care for persistent neck pain as a result of this surge in handheld entertainment. It's important to remember that maintaining ideal posture when using your mobile phone or tablet could prevent unnecessary strain on the upper back and neck. The above infographic highlights extreme loads placed on the spine as your head tilts further forward.
Technology is here to stay, so let's adapt our posture! Sit up straight and avoid TEXT NECK.

If you live with an arthritic condition, such as rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, you might notice that you experience significantly more pain during the colder months. Unfortunately, this often leads to many people avoiding active lifestyle hobbies during the winter months.
Even without any specific condition, most of us are very aware how the body seems to seize up when we are cold, thus causing us to move slower when the muscles become tense and stiff. So, YES, new research does confirm that the cold itself can be responsible for causing muscle stiffness and subsequent injury from poor flexibility. The key is to begin exercising when the muscles are warm, and keep them moving until you're done physical activity. Don't start with cold muscles and don't let them cool down during your workout.
Here's some helpful tips:
Maintain an Active Lifestyle. Keep those muscles and joints moving regularly!

Everyday at Chiro Clinic Moncton, I will consult a patient presenting with neck and upper back pain from excessive iPad use in the lying position. Though this may look like a comfy position to play on Facebook or surf the net, it often leads to severe discomfort and a trip to the local Chiropractor. After only a few minutes of being in this awful position, unnecessary strain gets placed on the muscles and discs of the neck, further leading to mechanical overload of the upper thoracic spine. After a few more minutes pass by, fingers start to fall asleep and generally the elbows will begin to tingle. Now, not only are the joints and muscles suffering a beating, but the nerves that supply the arms and hands are becoming irritated. All the while, many people are so captivated by what they're looking at on the tablet, they easily dismiss these warning sign symptoms and end up in pain for days to follow.&n
