As you know, the head weighs about 10-12 pounds. Naturally, when you have a misalignment in the upper neck, your head tilts on the side of the body, putting considerable stress on the rest of the body. As a result, the neck muscles have to work extra hard to support the head, leading to fatigue, muscle strain, and sometimes chronic pain.
One of the most effective ways to support ongoing chiropractic care and manage chronic pain on the base of the neck is by improving your posture. Here's a comprehensive list of posture-improving practices you should consider:

Thus, a proactive approach to good posture can prolong the positive impacts of your Upper Cervical chiropractic adjustments.
