Winter has been long and cold here in western North Carolina. While many enjoyed starting the season with the first White Christmas in a decade, by now, people in Asheville are ready for spring. We want to get out and explore the mountains, find a waterfall and swimming hole, shred some trails on a mountain bike, or float down the river.
This winter has been especially trying for those still working from home while facilitating remote learning. Adults and children who are used to their office or classroom setups have been working at dinner tables and makeshift desks for upwards of a year. Screen time doubled for children throughout the pandemic. Parents are stuck at laptops and screens more as well, with meetings often done exclusively through video conferencing.
What does being stuck inside staring at screens mean for your body? If your posture is not impeccable, you could be dealing with neck and back issues. If you already had subluxations related to posture, you could be exasperating existing issues. Dr. Monitto has many years of experience correcting posture and spinal issues with a variety of methods, including Y-Strap decompression.
