The daily stresses we face chemically, from thousands of substances that didn’t even exist for our grandparents and emotionally from social situations brought on by our disposable-microwave society can cause the same amount of internal damage as physical injury. These stressors are compounded by more technical, sitting, jobs and recreation with less physical activity to work off the stress.
Yoga, Pilates and Tai-Chi are a few good practices, offering stretching and relaxing-focused breathing techniques to help manage the accumulation of daily stress. And massage therapy consistently ranks high in relief of muscular tension. Even with these great services available to you, sometimes you need professional help.
Often, tension builds in between the neck and shoulders, irritating the control centers that maintain balance and posture. And for every inch that the center of your head, your ear canal, hangs in front of the center of your body, the midpoint of your shoulder, physical stress in your body doubles.

Nobel Prize winning brain research in 1980 estimated that 90 percent of the brain’s resources are tied up in compensating for this specific stress referred to as forward head posture. Choking the life out of you, robbing from proper breathing, digestion, detoxification, circulation, immune function, muscle performance and of course energy levels.
Upper Cervical Chiropractic is a sub-specialty that focuses on rehabilitating normal head posture without any of the twisting and cracking most people associate with chiropractic. Gentle impulses are administered by hand into the joints and connective tissues of the upper spine to reset the malfunctioning sensors that control postural muscle tension. The effects can be dramatic and immediate, often reducing forward head posture and cutting stress in half in the first session which only takes a few minutes, once all the measurements are taken.
