THank you everyone! 

 

I am going to go to the chiro and see how that goes as well as incorporate stretches. I started lifting more weights to strengthen my neck and shoulder muscles but this only seems to irritate my nerves and give me bad headaches and shooting pain.

 

Thanks again :)

Sitting at a desk, people tend to crouch and extend their head forward. The muscles in the front of the neck therefore become shortened. If you can stretch the chest muscles and neck muscles such as the SCM and Scalenes you will notice some improvement. You can stretch the chest using the opening of a doorway. Just put your hands on both sides of door opening and lean forward. The area you stretch will depend on how high or low you place your hands.

Hi Juicyfruity,

 

I am dealing with this same issue.  I had a grostic adjustment done which helped a lot, but i am back to a desk job where I sit in front of a computer all the time.  when I had x-rays done a few months ago by the chiropractor, it showed that I have no curvature at all in  my cervical spine anymore.  Please update if you find better solutions.  I do yoga and make sure to sit straight/stretch often, but it is an ongoing and painful battle.  My long term solution is to eventually remove myself from this or any office based job and move back to the tropics (permanently) for a life style change.

I have extreme forward head carriage and that is straightening my cervical spine and impinging on nerves.

Without additional stretching of tight muscles and strengthening of weeks muscles any work with be ongoing and possibly unsuccessful (I did 3 years)

I would suggest stretching and possibly doing some structural integration work. The focus is on alignment of the structure (skeleton) through working on the connective tissue, muscles. I studied it a few years ago and we did some excellent work on the neck and spine as well as the core which is key. If you do a search on line for before and after pics you will see some people had major issues going on with curvature of the spine prior to their sessions. The improvments are almost miraculous.

Aimeelovesyou here has dealt with spinal issues.  You might try her as well.

Yes. The anterior cervical muscles being hypertonic will cause straightening of the neck. A good Neuromuscular Therapist would know what to do. 

Me.

PM me and I will try to help
