Due to the demands of today’s office jobs, individuals can easily spend up to eight hours or more in a sedentary position on a daily basis. Breaks are short and infrequent, resulting in tremendous joint and muscle strain after prolonged tension. However, Dr. Licitra points out that besides being immobile for too long, it’s also the act of hunching forward that puts the spine out of alignment, resulting in back and neck pain.

Dr. Licitra said: “We live in a world that is constantly forward-flexed where we get on the computer all day long. The flexor muscles, which are the muscles that bring you forward, are getting overdeveloped and the extensor muscles which bring you back are underdeveloped.”

In addition to speaking on the causes of lower back and neck pain, Dr. Licitra also discussed how a chiropractor such as himself goes about addressing these conditions: “What we do at this office is try to balance out the muscles. We try to relax the muscles that are at forward-flexion, and then we will strengthen the muscles that are in extension to bring you back. This keeps you at optimal health and stops spinal degeneration.”

Dr. Joseph Licitra DC’s solo practice was established in 1981, and he has had the privilege of working on many professional athletes such as the New York Giants and the National Hockey League. Dr. Licitra’s practice in Clifton, NJ is currently offering free chiropractic consultations and accepts various insurance providers such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, UnitedHealthcare, Aetna, and many more.
