Got bad #posture? Massage or Chiropractor?
Neck muscle pain can be caused by the following neck muscles becoming tight: 🤕Scalene muscles (three pairs of muscles that help rotate the neck)
👨⚕️Suboccipital muscles (four pairs of muscles used to rotate the head.
👩⚕️Pectoralis minor muscles (a pair of thin triangular muscles at the upper part of the chest.
😣Subscapularis muscles (a pair of large triangular muscles near each shoulder joint)
😅Levator scapulae muscles (a pair of muscles located at the back and side of the neck).
The forward pull of the weight of the head puts undue stress on the vertebrae of the lower neck, contributing to degenerative disc disease and other degenerative neck problems. Similarly, this posture causes the muscles of the upper back to continually overwork to counterbalance the pull of gravity on the forward head. This position is often accompanied by forward shoulders and a rounded upper back, which not only feeds into the neck problem but can also cause shoulder pain.
OUCH!!!😠 The more time spent with a forward head posture, the more likely it is that one will develop neck and shoulder problems.
When a chiropractor 'adjust' bones back into place, often times it's a quick fix. Did you know muscles attach to bones? So if the tight muscle is pulling you out of alignment, don't you need these tight muscles to be fixed so they are no longer tight, no longer ruining your posture, no longer impeding your performance!? It may be the muscle, not the bones. You may need a #massage therapist, not a #chiropractor. Seek out an experienced professional with knowledge of your body and your sport. .

On This Day in @mlb History:
1989: Due to the fact that Dave Winfield was out for the foreseeable future, the @yankees traded catcher, Joel Skinner, along with a minor league prospect to the @indians in exchange of outfielder, Mell Hall. Winfield missed the entire regular season following back surgery. #yankees#indians#springtraining#mlb
