Study performed by Bronfort et al
Mechanical neck pain is a common condition that affects an estimated 70% of persons at some point in their lives. Little research exists to guide the choice of therapy for acute and subacute neck pain.
Objective: To determine the relative efficacy of spinal manipulation therapy (SMT), medication, and home exercise with advice (HEA) for acute and subacute neck pain in both the short and long term.
Learn to touch type: Using a computer regularly involves alot of small up and down motions of the head – moving it
from document to screen creates a repetitious stress on the muscles and joints of the neck. This can lead to neck, shoulder, upper limb pain and headaches.
Apart from typing alot quicker and concentrating more on the job in hand rather than the keys you will be pressing, if you can touch type you will be helping yourself to reduce tension in the upper back and neck.
