I work at a computer all day, five days a week. It was not hard at first, but I could feel my body changing a bit as this went on. I was slouching more, and I knew that my posture was really suffering. I also started getting headaches, and I knew that something had to be done before I started falling apart even worse. The bad thing about the headaches is that I still had to work, so I had to find a way to deal with them. I found that way with a San Francisco Chiropractor that I went to see at the suggestion of one of my coworkers.
I honestly had no idea what a chiropractor could do for me, but I was willing to give just about anything a try at this point. I made the appointment with the same chiropractor who treats her on a regular basis, and I was surprised to see that it was not staring at a computer screen that was the likely culprit of my headaches. I found this out on my first visit, which was a combination consultation and examination.
I had explained about my desk job causing my poor posture, and then about the headaches that had started not long after. He told me that the headaches were likely a result of my posture. I was putting stress on nerves since I was not standing or sitting straight, and that was definitely a way to get headaches. He suggested that I try a series of adjustments to see if that helped with the headaches, then he gave me a list of exercises that he wanted me to do to help with my poor posture. He told me that the adjustments would definitely help, but I had to take part in the treatment too by performing the exercises. My posture is once again much better, and I have not had a headache in months!
