As we get older, our bodies become less agile and a lot more vulnerable to injury. It may not be entirely accurate for all of us, but it seems true for most. One major issue that I hear about from friends and family is stiff necks and shoulders. We spend so much of our time in front of screens, be it a laptop, phone, or kindle that the consequent bad posture seems to have become a part of our life. 

What are some ways in which we can avoid this? Do you have any personal hacks to work on bad posture and fixing neck and back pain?

Neck pain is fast becoming an endemic. Because of the availability of 'convenient technology', Almost 70% of adults will experience limiting neck pain.

To fix this crisis, its important to understand that POSTURE, more than anything, is directly responsible for neck pain. The more conscious you are about how you sit, walk or stand; the better off you'll be in combating neck pain.

Remember, by using mobile devices and computers, we have the tendency to slouch miserably. 

By practicing proper posture, you can reduce your risk of getting neck pain considerably.

I have suffered from neck pain and issues since I was 15. This is down to cracking my neck for several years and bad posture. The best way to avoid it is to ensure you have good posture and spinal alignment. For someone like me who has a very long-standing issue with pasture, a doctor should be used. I am working on scheduling an appointment with a chiropractor soon as my new insurance is active. 

Things you can do to help with pains are making use of a TENS unit (got one from a physical therapist, my insurance covered the cost in full), use ice bottles to ease pain, and not sit for prolonged periods of time. Be sure to stand up and stretch every 30 minutes.
