Jean’s Neck pain   Jean attended the clinic a few months back with right sided neck pain. Jean’s story is all too familiar, a 3 year history of intermittent neck and upper shoulder pain which hurts when working at the PC, driving her car (especially reversing) and whilst out socialising with friends.

If you watched the Olympics this year will have at some point been amazed by the movements and positions the athletes manoeuvred themselves into – without our spines we would not have been able to do this!

Your back should not slump into a flexed position and you head should be positioned above you neck and shoulders and not ‘stuck out’ in front of you! Here are a few tips to get your seat right. 1.
