Why Neck Pain and Stress Management?

Over the years the special interest in neck injuries and stress management came as a result of ever changing society and ongoing pressures and demands for our bodies to perform. The use of computers, desk jobs and ongoing studies tend to create a lot of problems in neck and upper back area. It seems that we are facing a new epidemic. With this comes a demand for better care and better results which require specialised training and more focused approach.
