Stiffness in the upper back accompanied by headaches and fatigue are common complaints that are often interrelated. However, it’s always best to visit your doctor for a definite diagnosis before attempting any treatment. Your doctor will be able to let you know what is the best method to relieve upper back stiffness, headaches and fatigue.
Upper back stiffness, headaches, and fatigue are often the result of poor posture, in particular forward head posture or FHP. FHP is characterized by the head being held forward of the shoulders. This type of posture puts undue pressure on the joints of the neck, and strains the muscles of the upper back, resulting in postural imbalance.

Rebalancing the spine by correcting FHP is one of the most effective ways to relieve upper back stiffness, and the accompanying headaches and fatigue. This can be done a therapeutic device known as the Posture Pump Dual Disc Hydrator.
The Dual Disc Hydrator is a neck traction device that relieves pain in the neck, shoulders, and lower back. It fits comfortably below the neck, and also has a head support band that is placed low on the forehead, and helps stabilize the head.

It also eases stress on the joints of the neck and upper back, which can often cause headaches.
