Upper Crossed Syndrome

This condition, also commonly known as “student syndrome”, is a classic condition amongst those who spend large amounts of time stationary at a desk.

The condition is caused by tightness in certain muscles with associated weakness in their counterparts creating a “hunched” posture with the head sitting forward and the shoulders rolled.  Many people find relief from this condition through appropriate chiropractic care combining treatment methods with strengthening exercises to correct the postural imbalance.
