Doctors told to go for surgery, but my father already faced surgery for hernia. And denies for another.

The spine is a foundational structure of the human body that supports both the head and the neck. The neck is especially vulnerable to the damaging effects of poor posture because it’s influenced by the position of the skull as well as the curvature of the spine.
When the neck leans forward and the head is in front of the shoulders, the forward weight of the head can place considerable pressure on the vertebrae of the neck. This position, if held repeatedly for long periods of time, has been found to contribute to disc deterioration and other degenerative conditions.
Prolonged malposition of the spine or the head can put a fair amount of strain on neck muscles, causing them to become tight and tense.
This muscle tension often leads to pain and stiffness. There are also several other muscles that are particularly susceptible to damage caused by strain.
These muscles are-
1- scalene muscles
3-levator scapulae muscles.
A forward head position also places strain on the upper back and shoulder muscles. Excessive muscle strain is a common culprit for recurring back pain.
The results of poor posture-
If left uncorrected over time, poor posture can lead to numerous long-term problems. Improper posture can begin to irritate the ligaments, joints and soft tissues in and surrounding the neck.
Irritation could contribute to the development of osteoarthritis, disc herniation or degenerative disc disease. It may also cause decreased range of motion and the development of painful trigger points (areas of muscle that are extremely sensitive to touch).
How physiotherapy can help?
Treatment of neck problems involves identifying and managing the underlying causes present.
Physiotherapy treatment includes- mobilization and/or manipulation techniques, stretching and strengthening of the neck musculature, soft tissue therapy and trigger pointing, heat therapy, cryotherapy, postural correction, acupuncture, ultrasound and pilates.
Manual therapy techniques are used to loosen joint and soft tissue restrictions, while posture correction and specific and how to prevent recurrences.
The majority of neck pain sufferers tend to work at desks; therefore, optimising this environment through ergonomic assessment is often the key to successful management of this problem.
