Dubai, March 20th, 2016 – The increased use of mobile phones and electronic touch pads, as well as the increased number of jobs that require substantial amounts of time working on the computer have led to the incidence of bad posture and back pain on a dramatic rise in the UAE.
As people are spending more time with their head and neck flexed in a forward position staring at their electronics, they are creating excessive muscle tightness in the neck and back and putting abnormal pressure on their discs and spinal joints leading to gradual misalignment and degeneration. Although this is not hereditary, most children are now spending excessive amounts of time in this same damaging position playing on their electronics and texting with their friends.
Dr. Stan Pierce, Founder, CEO, and lead instructor for EPIC (Evolutionary Percussive Instrument Corrections) and Clinical Director of the Atlas Spinal Center commented saying, “When you consider that most people already have misalignments of spinal bones from previous minor or major traumas that are creating spinal problems and eventual pain, then the bad posture of this technology-age is accelerating the decline in health from these uncorrected misalignments thus damaging the nerves and muscles further.”
The longer the spine remains misaligned, the more damaged people will become. The quicker one can correct the spine into proper position, the sooner you can begin healing and living life with a properly functioning nervous system, which controls every organ and muscle in your body.
“Having your spinal alignment checked periodically is a logical thing to do, to correct misalignments and prevent the development of major dysfunction, degeneration and pain. Most people don’t know this and therefore wait until their pains have become intolerable before they go to a doctor looking for relief. Keeping your alignment corrected, maintaining good posture, and exercising are the best ways to avoid having to see doctors for ongoing back pain and other health problems.” adds Dr. Stan Pierce.
Additionally, the technique founded by Dr. Stan Pierce known as EPIC (Evolutionary Percussive Instrument Corrections) is now available in Dubai. It is a non-surgical, gentle, effective technique, and if done periodically by a specialized EPIC doctor, aligns the atlas bone which can correct spinal problems and help prevent a lot of health problems in the future.
