What Your Posture is Doing to You

Ever wonder why your neck and shoulders are so tense and sore?

With normal posture the average head weighs about 12 lbs. Arch your back forward 2" and now its 32 lbs., add another inch and that translates to 42 lbs. of weight hanging from your neck all day. It's no wonder you're in pain.

With all this muscle tension you could start developing the "Granny Hump", compressed (degenerative) discs, pinched nerves and degenerated vertebra. OUCH!!!
