Did you know?

In one research experiment, over 70% of people in their 20’s had disc bulges in their neck- and none had neck pain!  Even healthy people have strange things on their MRI, but it doesn’t mean surgery is required or even that those “abnormal” findings are all that “abnormal”. (Nakashima et al. Spine. 2015 March)

Another study found that up to 70% of asymptomatic shoulders had a superior labral tear (tear in the joint capsule).  Again, that means that 70% of people between 40 and 60 years of age have these “tears” and do not know it.  We should realize that some imaging findings may be normal age-related findings. 

How heavy is your head? Normal posture- 12 lb. 

2 inches of forward head posture = 32lb. 

3 inches of forward head posture = 42lb. 

Forward head posture occurs when we slouch.  No wander those neck muscles are so tight!
