  • Neck alignment BUT it’s out of alignment; what you need to know.

    Why does having poor neck alignment on my scorecard decrease my performance, increase injury, and give me headaches?

    Yes, you could get headaches because your neck is incorrectly aligned with your spine. Crazy to think about, but improving your posture and movement can get you out of pain & those headaches you have most of the time!

    Poor neck alignment can have several adverse effects on the body and contribute to various physical problems.

    Poor neck alignment may decrease performance because it can lead to muscle imbalances and tension in the neck and upper back muscles. This can affect your ability to concentrate and perform at your best. These muscle imbalances can make maintaining proper posture challenging and contribute to fatigue and discomfort. If you are a baseball player, it becomes significantly harder to use the scaps in the best practical way to throw a baseball effectively and safely because the neck has gone out of alignment. When a baseball player’s mechanics go out of alignment, the upper body compensates in unhealthy areas in an explosive swing or throw. So the body sees a higher chance of injury in these situations.

    Poor neck alignment can also increase the risk of injury. When the neck is not aligned correctly, it can place extra strain on the muscles and joints of the neck, leading to muscle strains, sprains, and other injuries. This can be particularly problematic if you engage in repetitive neck movements like typing, driving, or playing sports.

    Finally, poor neck alignment can also contribute to headaches. Tension in the neck muscles can cause headaches, and poor neck alignment can cause these muscles to become strained and tense. And, poor neck alignment can lead to poor blood flow to the head, contributing to headache symptoms. Tests have proven that when the neck is misaligned, the blood flow is restricted to the brain. But through neck alignment drills, headaches can decrease, and blood flow can circulate to the brain better. Reach out to a G8way coach if you would like such drills.

    Maintaining good neck alignment is essential for both physical performance and overall health. It can help reduce the risk of injury and discomfort and improve your ability to concentrate and perform at your best.
