Hi. You should watch your posture. Keep your chin parallel to the ground. Rotate your shoulders. Turn your head from left to right. Do this all day. Do not roll your head backwards as it will further squash your cervical vertabrae.

Hi. Why are you guilty? Many people have a larger trunk and spine. Instead of feeling bad, improve your posture – stand straight, value your body, be greatful. There are people who don’t have arms and legs. Your problem is not a problem but the way you see yourself is a problem. Work on loving yourself.
