3 Simple Tips for Managing Neck Discomfort - 1st Week
By Genevieve Cunningham
Neck pain is common, and it’s also irritating. We use the necks so much … for walking, standing, exercising, and holding the head up. When pain strikes in the vicinity of the neck, it makes so many things difficult. It’s hard to get around the pain when doing normal activities, and getting rid of it is a serious bother. If you’d like to boost the health of your neck and diminish pain, check out these three tips for managing the pain and discomfort.
Work It Out
If you’re not staying active, then neck pain is almost assuredly in your future. Our bodies thrive with movement. We need to move in order to stay well and keep the muscles and joints loose and limber. While there aren’t very many neck specific exercises, there are plenty of stretches that can be done to keep your neck strong and loose. Find some exercises that you enjoy and that feel good, and incorporate them into your daily routine.
Have you ever woken up with a crick in the neck? Of course you have; we all have! Try to improve your sleeping habits and conditions in order to keep your neck healthy. Buy a new pillow that supports the neck and is comfortable on the head. Check your mattress for loose springs or sinking spots. The better your sleep, the more relaxed and less stressed your body and mind, and the less likely you are to experience neck pain and discomfort.
Chiropractors look for problem spots along the spine which may contribute to neck pain. These problem spots, called subluxations, are misalignments of the vertebrae. They can cause a wide array of symptoms including pain, inflexibility, headaches, and a whole host of others. As a chiropractor corrects these spots, many of these symptoms are diminished or eliminated, and neck pain becomes less and less of an issue in your health.
