Personal development training - neck pain, headaches and migraines -

On Thursday 2nd February the staff at Physio on Brunswick were lucky enough to have Dr Cedric Chu from Newmarket Family Doctors come into the clinic, for our in house personal development training, to impart his invaluable knowledge of neck pain, headaches and migraines.
 
One of the many interesting things Dr Chu explained to us was the discovery by Danny Yee that "An adult human cadaver head cut off around vertebra C3, with no hair, weighs somewhere between 4.5 and 5 kg, constituting around 8% of the whole body mass."  As shown in the picture, the further forward our head is, the dramatically heavier it is! 
 
In a society so reliant on our mobile phones - this image here only begins to explain why so many of us at some point, will have neck and/or back pain....
