3 Everyday Habits That Cause Neck & Back Pain, Somerset, Kentucky

Suffering from chronic neck and back pain can be uncomfortable and inconvenient. But did you know there are a few everyday habits that contribute to your discomfort? Here, the team at Somerset, KY’s Henderson Chiropractic discusses three common (and fixable) culprits behind neck and back pain.

3 Common Habits That Cause Neck & Back Pain

1. Hunching Over Your Desk

During a busy day at the office, it’s easy to get wrapped up in your work. Before you know it, you’ve spent hours hunched over your desk, staring at a computer screen or answering phones. This kind of poor posture can quickly lead to neck and back pain. Try to move around and stretch to avoid stiffness, and look for a comfortable office chair that conforms to the natural S-curve of your spine for added comfort. 

2. Sleeping in Uncomfortable Positions

Do you frequently wake up sleeping on your stomach? If so, this position may be responsible for some of your neck and back pain. To avoid unnecessary discomfort, try to sleep on your side or back so you don’t twist your neck at night. 

3. Carrying Heavy Bags

However, carrying a heavy bag can put serious strain on your back, neck, and shoulders. Try your best to consolidate your items. If you carry a shoulder bag, switch sides frequently to give certain muscles a break.
