Do you have…
- Shoulder or hip pain?
- Do you grind your teeth?
- Have acid reflux?
- Experience occasional dizziness?
All of these symptoms can be related to how you sit when you are using TECHNOLOGY.
Tech neck or forward head placement is becoming a common condition in people working on computers daily. As we look at our screens, our heads start to move forward and our shoulders and spine start to slump. This evolutionary technology adaptation is shifting our head and shoulders forward, increasing the weight on our body by 10-12 pounds. The more the head and shoulders shift forward, the more they weigh.
And our bodies are paying the price with a variety of disruptive symptoms and pronounced degeneration in the cervical vertebrae.
But there is good news. You can learn simple home techniques that help realign the head and neck and counter the impact of this common condition.
In this course, wellness coach and Pilates expert Wendy Basch will guide you to understand the roles the bones, nervous system, fascia and muscles play in this adapted pattern and teach you key techniques and stretches to release tight muscles as well as mobilizing and strengthening exercises for the weak ones.
Investing a little time to increase your awareness and improve your posture now can help save you years of pain and potential surgeries later. It’s well worth the investment!
