Loss of Normal Neck Posture

What causes your neck alignment/posture issues?

Cervical spinal ligament injury, such as postural issues, excessive looking down at computer/IPAD or phone, incorrect pillow, whiplash injuries, or any other neck injures may contribute to loss of normal cervical posture (lordosis). Weaker, lax ligaments reduce neck (cervical spine) stability resulting in structural abnormalities. Loss of normal cervical lordosis and/or forward head posture can create a cascade of weakened cervical ligaments and discs leading further increase in poor posture 

What can we do to help you?

What next steps can be taken in order to improve the curve of the neck when it has straightened or reversed?  Denneroll is a device we sell here at Lakeside Chiropractic ($55) that is designed to mirror image the curve. It provides a force that is put into the abnormal curve to correct it. The treatment schedule requires commitment but research studies show that this is a viable means to restore some of the neck curve. 

The Denneroll cervical orthotic cushion is designed to be used in the comfort of your own home, or at the office and even taken with you when traveling.

What happens if neck posture is not corrected?

  • Headaches
  • Neck discomfort
  • Muscle tension in the neck and shoulders
  • Discomfort in the mid back
  • Chest pain
  • Pain, pins & needles and numbness in the arms and hands
  • Early joint and disc degeneration
