The position in which you hold the telephone receiver can cause problems in the neck area leading to headaches, neck tension, pain and stiffness. One of the major contributors to displaced vertebrae in the neck is the telephone.

Most people don’t realize that awkward positioning, such as cradling the phone on the shoulder and bending the neck to fit the ear to the receiver, can throw the upper region of the spine (neck) out of balance. Pain can result as vertebrae becoming misaligned or locked, leading to abnormal muscle contraction and irritation of the nerves in the spine.

Headaches, another symptom of such misalignment, are another way the body signals that something is wrong. Painkillers only cover up symptoms that may become more serious. The cause of the headache still remains.

Following are two proper telephone postures to avoid pain from vertebral misalignment:

♦ When using a phone, sit up straight, keep your head level and switch hands from time to time to equalize tension. Always hold the telephone with one of your hands, never cradling it between the neck and shoulder.

♦ Chiropractic    care    can    dramatically    reduce headache   pain   because it   corrects   nervous system dysfunction that causes headaches.  If your work requires repetitive actions straining the neck and back, seek regular chiropractic adjustments to restore proper nervous system function. Feeling good can become an everyday occurrence with regular chiropractic care.
