Do you find that a certain activity always brings on your back pain? The identification and correction of faulty movement patterns ie. lifting/bending is a large part of what we as chiropractors do. This helps not only to reduce pain levels, but to keep them reduced long term.

Little and often is the key with exercise. Do something that you enjoy, and that is not to onerous. The incremental benefits are what is really important. Our biggest enemy as we get older is stiffness, so keep moving!

Is your neck weak?

This is a fantastic exercise to strengthen the deep neck flexors, which are often chronically weak in neck pain sufferers. To see whether or not yours are weak, first lay on your back. Lift your head up off the ground. can you hold this position for 30 seconds without discomfort or shaking?

If not – get stuck into these chin tucks.

Sit in a chair (or stand if you prefer!) Now sit up tall, shoulders back.

Then draw your head backwards a couple of inches by tucking your chin in and lengthening your neck at the back. If done correctly, you should give yourself a double chin! (Best not do this if your out in a bar trying to pull!).

Now hold this “double chin” position for 5 seconds.

Behold the double chin of neck stability!

Repeat this 5 times in a row.

Try to perform 5 reps, 5 times a day at evenly spaced intervals.

Do this for 2 weeks and just Watch how your posture improves!

(Thank you to Owain Evans for the text and pictures)

We are very keen to encourage more people to understand what Chiropractors do and how we can help many different muscular and skeletal problems from managing acute and chronic pain to dealing with postural issues and helping your body to work better.  We are very happy for you to come in and have a chat with us.  There is no charge for that, and it may well be that we can help with something that has previously been difficult to sort out.  We have practices in Bath (01225 852371), Bradford on Avon (01225 862140)  and Devizes (01380 729103), and all you have to do is call one of the practices and say that you are interested in finding out more; we will be very happy to see you.
