Posture is often involuntary and the lowest energy position that our bodies end up in. This is why, regardless how many times you tell her, she will not maintain the better posture until she strengthens the muscles in her core. A great exercise to start with is called the bird dog exercise. An example of it can be found here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgOuR7YrwtM
Soreness in the back that is made better when you lay flat is something that we treat in our office on a regular basis. These symptoms are often caused by restrictions in the joints in the spine. This is best treated with a chiropractic adjustment. After an examination, the chiropractor will determine if an adjustment is the best treatment option. Seeing a chiropractor is the best place to get started with resolving this issue.

Pain on one side of the body, especially the arms, is very commonly caused by a problem in back and neck. When muscles and joints in the upper back and neck are not working properly, the resulting dysfunction can cause pain and weakness in the arm. The specific location of the dysfunction depends on where in the back the problem comes from.
Another common cause of forearm pain and weakness is tennis elbow if it is on the outside of the elbow to the hands. Here is our youtube channel, I will be doing a video on forearm pain. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMWQtawahy7vj6SoySDFw-g
Muscle stiffness can be a result of many things including water intake, muscle recovery from overexertion, or vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
There are two groups of minerals that our bodies use to contact a muscle, sodium and potassium, and calcium and magnesium. When any one of these minerals is out of balance, a shortage or excess, the muscles can become stiff. One that I typically recommend to all of my patients that are experiencing muscle stiffness especially before bed is to take a magnesium and calcium supplement and drink plenty of water. These three things can have a large impact on decreasing muscle stiffness and helping you get back to normal. As always, consult your physician before making any changes to your regime.
Pain in the neck first thing in the morning is often a result of joints and muscles in your neck and upper back not functioning properly as well as an improper sleep position (too much or too little of a pillow). First, check that your neck is straight when you are sleeping on your side or has a small curve in it if you are on your back. (If you sleep on your stomach, this can be the cause of your neck pain) Second, adjust your pillows and sleep position to find the best position for your neck.
If the problem is not coming from your sleep habits but instead from improper moving joints and muscles, seeing your chiropractor is advised. They can provide an examination to find the cause of the problem and provide treatments that help.

We use up to 200 muscles just to talk a step forward! Though any of these muscles can result in problems with our walking, soreness is indicative of an overused muscle.
First, you want to rule out any change in activity or weight, and any strength training as the possible trigger for the soreness. After these have been ruled out, the most likely problem is with your gait (walking form). Because we do not think about firing the 200 muscles in a coordinated motion every time we take a step, our bodies have developed patterns that make the thought process easier. On occasion, faulty movement patterns can become a part of our routine which can lead to a change in the forces the body applies to various joints and muscles. All of these changes can lead to muscles that are overworked and become. A chiropractor specializes in musculoskeletal condition and can help you find the source of the problem.

Chiropractic can be helpful by allowing the neck and related musculature to move and function correctly, thus allowing the sinuses to drain better.

For long-term relief, go to your local farmers market and grab some raw honeycomb (sometimes grocery stores have them) and chew on a piece of it like gum daily for a few months. This will help your body be exposed to a small quantity of the allergens that are present in your area (make sure the honey is from within 15 miles of your house) and allow you build up a resistance to them.
