Neck Pain


 

How it feels

The back side of your neck is burning.  The tension starts at the base of your neck and goes all the way up into the back of your head.  It is usually unilateral, and there may be a lump in the upper portion of the muscle just below the base of the neck.  If a good massage or heat helps, you know it is muscle pain. 
 

Common Causes   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •

The most common reason for neck pain is "Head Forward Posture".  Your head is supposed to be balanced over your spine.  That means your ears should be straight above the center of your shoulders.  For every inch your head drifts forward of this balanced position, it doubles in weight.  A three inches forward shift is not uncommon, and it makes those sore neck muscles support 36lbs against gravity.  Your neck muscles cramp up from constantly being over worked. 

Computer posture: Notice how people, especially people who wear glasses, tend to slouch down and lean into their computer screens.  To avoid neck pain, ask your eye doctor for "computer glasses" that makes the screen blurry if you are too close to the monitor.

 

Neck pain and headaches are typically muscle pain.
 



Head forward posture

How to eliminate the pain

A balanced standing and sitting posture where your head is positioned over the spine will alleviate the neck pain.  The basis for a good posture is your foot foundation.  Hyperpronating feet shift your posture forward, so eliminating hyperpronation will shift your weight to the back so you stand up straighter and more balanced.  To accomplish this, you may also need to do some exercises to limber up your neck and thoracic region (upper section) of your back.  

Pay attention to your work habits.  If you are in front of a compute all day, be sure you are ergonomically balanced.  Hanging on to the mouse all day may elevate one shoulder which also causes a shift in your head position.  Start with your feet - They are usually the #1 source of trouble.

Hyperpronation

If you hyperpronate, your arches drop from non-weight bearing (sitting with your feet on the ground) to weight bearing (standing).  When your arches drop, your ankles roll in and your heels lean in (evert) as illustrated in the picture.  Even a small amount of hyperpronation can cause neck pain.

The Solution - Posture Control Insoles®

Posture Control Insoles® do something no other orthotics can do:  Posture Control Insoles® are the only foot orthotics that naturally reduce hyperpronation by using your own muscles. Instead of weakening your feet with arch supports, you build strength through natural motion.

Even if you feel like your ankles are weak or lean out (supinate), chances are that your feet hyperpronate once your heels lift off the ground.  Posture Control Insoles® will naturally restore your foot function and posture by giving your feet - and your brain - a true read of the ground so your muscles can keep your feet and body balanced.  That's why Posture Control Insoles® work for so many different pain symptoms including neck pain.

The insoles are guaranteed to work for you.  Trim and wear them for 90 days.  If they do not relieve your symptoms to your satisfaction, you may return them for a full refund including shipping and handling charges.  You can also call us - We'll be glad to help you troubleshoot.
