One major source of pain for many adults is improper posture. The image to the left displays an individual slouching in a computer chair, which reverses the natural curves of the spine. Over an extended period of time, poor posture – while sitting, standing, and even sleeping – can cause damage to spinal tissues that may require surgery or alternative pain management treatments.
Sleeping in an improper position is another common source of back & neck pain. To protect your back while sleeping, it is recommended that you choose a pillow and a mattress that are supportive but not overly firm in order to keep your back and neck in a comfortable, neutral position.
