Headaches? Neck pain? The cause may be..

This occurs in individuals that exhibit frequent poor posture or work from a position where everything you do is in front of you like hairdressers, massage therapists, chiropractors, office and computer workers, or pretty much a good majority of people in general.images-3

Tight muscles to stretch: Pecs, Upper traps, Levator scapula, and thoracic extension.
