Elliott Hulse shows everyone how to balance your neck musculature to decrease neck pain and forward head carriage.
Do you work at a desk all day, play video games, text on a cell phone or drive long hours? Do you notice your head sitting unnaturally forward compared to your shoulders? You might experience upper back pain and maybe even a bump at the base of your neck. This all could be due to a loss of cervical curve and an imbalance in the musculature of the neck. Treating the curvature in the neck is simple: contact your local chiropractor. Strengthening the muscles in the neck is also easy: see the video below to find out how.
Everyone can benefit from a better night's rest.
This is a great summary of a study done by Indiana University.
Walking at work has been touted as a great way to normalize blood flow, decrease low back pain and increase morale in the workplace. This video sums everything up nicely from a walking study done by Indiana University. An increase in muscle activity thus creating better blood flow was shown to normalize arterial function in the body. If workers are allowed to sit for periods, blood tends to pool in the legs since muscles are not effectively helping circulation go back to the heart as talked about in this video from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This amazing compilation shows what training and dedication allow people to do.
Even though everything looks perfect in the video, there were many outtakes and injuries sustained while filming. Martyn Ashton actually sustained a severe spinal injury from a fall during one of his stunts. Take care of your spine and it will take care of you.

Is your body ready to handle something like this?
Whether the video above is real or fake, it still sends shivers down your spine. Many elements of this video showcase how a properly functioning spine and nervous system made this video possible. Firstly, a jump from that height puts quite a bit of force on the discs cushioning the spinal vertebrae. If he had degeneration in those discs and any possible nerve entrapment, an immediate reaction to the shark likely wouldn't have been his first thought.
A Neti Pot can be a simple solution to sinus issues.
Neti Pots can be an effective and natural way to combat seasonal allergies and other sinus related illnesses. No medication works as fast and fully in clearing nasal congestion than neti pots and other sinus rinses.
Here's what Mayo Clinic has to say about them: A neti pot is a container designed to rinse your nasal cavity. You might use a neti pot to treat nasal allergies, sinus problems or colds. In fact, many people believe that regular use of a neti pot is more effective for nasal allergy and sinus symptoms than are over-the-counter medications.
If you are making your own saltwater solution, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends using bottled water that has been distilled or sterilized. Tap water is acceptable if it's been passed through a filter with a 1-micron pore size or if it's been boiled for several minutes and then left to cool.
To use the neti pot, tilt your head over the sink, place the spout of the pot in the upper nostril and gently pour in the water. As you pour, the water will flow through your nasal cavity and out the lower nostril. Repeat on the other side.
Be sure to rinse the irrigation device after each use with similarly distilled, sterile, previously boiled and cooled, or filtered water and leave open to air dry.
Neti pots are often available in pharmacies and health food stores, and you can find an even wider selection online.
