    My chiro gave me 2 quick, inexpensive fixes: get rid of your office chair and get a yoga ball to sit on, and raise your monitor higher on your desk so you're forced to sit up and look at it.

    What your chiro is charging is ridiculous. We pay $25 per visit for all 3 of us to be adjusted.

    My personal solution (not for everybody): get really pregnant. If I slouch, I'm in instant discomfort. Mean Baby gets very grouchy with me and lets me know it!

    Alternately, I switched to a standup desk about a decade ago. I just made my own, and made it high enough so it fits run under my armpits and I'm forced to stand up straight. Best thing I ever did -- forced me to stand up straight all day long.

    *giggle* it might work for your wife if she's still at that special age

    or get one of those pseudo baby bumps and strap it on really tight.

    check out Esther Gokhale re posture

    [QUOTE=ez2cy;1039547]Ok, relying on all you smart people here.

    Wife and I both have problems with back, neck etc. Story is, found a chiropractor that has this new thing called Shock Therapy. Emailed to see how much it was for a treatment and got the "you'll have to come in and talk to him as there are different treatments etc." Should have been a red flag. Talks to us both and sends us for xrays. Charged 100 bucks for the two of us. Ok, first visit I get it. Go back for the results. Talks to us about how it's our posture and how he could fix it. Leaves and the manager steps in to talk to us about a treatment programn. It's 6 months and we can save money if we do the plan rather than pay as we go. It's $3,500.00 each...yes EACH!. Ok....wife is thinking, it makes sense and if it does fix us, how do you put a price on health? Get home and we were emailed another bill for another $100.00. Now I'm pissed! I've been to well over a dozen chiropractors over the years with moving etc. Yes, first visit is always a little more, but they atleast give you an adjustment so you feel better. For $200.00 all we got is told how much this is going to cost us.

    for a tiny outlay of cash (or none) Esther can help. Check the Gokhale Method. I had immediate help.

    Dr BB, unfortunately afterwards, when you're no longer pregnant, it is far easier to slouch Though I didn't really do it badly until bub #4 was born. Found I was almost touching my lap with my nose lol.
