HOW TO GET RID OF NECK AND UPPER BACK PAIN

Updated: Dec 11, 2019

The biggest cause of pain in the upper back, neck and shoulders is by far, bad posture.


The lifestyles we have today have changed dramatically over the years. Most of what we are doing now is sitting down behind a desk or driving. While we attempt to have our workspace set up ergonomically, if we are in a rush or working to a deadline, ergonomics and our posture usually take the back seat.

Looking down at our mobile devices all the time is also contributing to neck issues which the medical profession has lovingly named “tech-neck”.


Most of the time we don’t even notice the bad posture until the muscles effected start feeling pain. The bad news is, by the time we start feeling pain, it’s already too late and there is a lot of work required to get everything back to normal.
