Hello my friends,
If you use a cell phone, heads up – literally! If not, you may be creating damage that will be with you for your lifetime.
Imagine swinging a kettleball by the end of your neck. Tiring, right?
But spin a basketball on the end of your finger, and you won’t feel the weight in the same way.
That’s your head, 10 pounds or even more poised up on top of your spine. Balanced well, we don’t even feel it. Let it fall forward and your entire system will suffer.
The study reports on damage to the spine that increases with the angle of your head and neck:
“…the cumulative effect of years of that stress can lead to degeneration of the spine itself.”
Dr. Kornel recommends the Alexander Technique as “a form of training that makes you aware of optimal body positioning.”
I’m an AmSAT Certified Alexander teacher with well over a decade of experience. In the Mt. View/Palo Alto area, contact me for a no cost phone consultation and I’ll gladly answer your questions.
