Let’s face it, our world runs on digital: computers, tablets, smart devices. A good majority of modern jobs consist of sitting at a desk, in front of a screen, with fingers fast at work on a keyboard. For some Americans, this describes their daily realities. Southwest Chiropractic understands how this can have unintended ramifications on our bodies. We care about your back and neck health. We know that hours of desk posture might be a culprit for why many seek back pain treatment.
The Desk Syndrome
You might have heard the age-old adage: if you don’t use it, you lose it. Movement and utilization of your muscles is key to staying healthy and keeping things working properly. As the workforce changes, many Americans find themselves confronted with a serious problem: immobility. Spending too long in the same position can cause serious problems to your neck and spine.

Over time, this might set you up for injury and begin causing chronic back and neck pain and other issues.
