Health Tip: How to Help “Tech Neck” from The Pilates Advantage [VIDEO]
GOOD Morning Wilton has teamed up with The Pilates Advantage on a new monthly series of video health tips. Each month Mary Beth Young, the owner of Wilton-based The Pilates Advantage, will demonstrate easy exercises, movements or adjustments you can make to help integrate healthier body alignment and movement into your life.
This month, Young’s video covers “Tech Neck,” an issue impacting a wide swath of the public thanks to reliance on cell phone use, poor posture while sitting in front of computer screens and other similar situations. She warns that the problem can not only cause pain and tightness in the middle and upper back, shoulders and neck, but also impede healthy digestion and respiration.
Step-by-step, Young demonstrates an easy set of stretches and moves and coordinated breaths that viewers can do very simply right at home.
The Pilates Advantage is located at 414 Olmstead Hill Rd., at Danbury Rd./Rte. 7. For more information or to book a free personalized assessment please email Mary Beth Young.
