How You Can Protect Your Neck From the Stubborn Crick

By Genevieve Cunningham

When you’re dealing with pain in your life, it’s sometimes tempting to throw in the towel and just live with it. Finding relief can be hard! And perhaps one of the toughest areas to find a bit of relief is in the neck. When you wake up with a crick, it seems as if the entire day is doomed. But luckily, this doesn’t have to be the case. If you want to avoid neck pain, perhaps the best approach is prevention. If you’re sick of dealing with those stubborn cricks, take a look at these ways to protect your neck and live pain-free.

Get Off the Phone

As much as we hate to admit it, excessive phone use leads to pain. And almost everyone uses their phone -- or some other technological device -- to excess. When we’re on the phone, whether we’re browsing the internet, texting, or doing something else, we generally hold our bodies in a way that creates both tension and pain. We slump the shoulders, bend the neck, and round the upper back. Over time, this can create a great deal of pain in the neck that we just can’t eliminate. The answer? While some exercises and pain relief methods might help, the best thing to do is to limit the time spent on the phone. Will this be difficult? Yes! But the results will be well worth the trouble.

Splurge on a Pillow

The way that you sleep makes a huge impact on the way that your neck (and body!) feels in the morning. If you’re trying to eliminate or prevent neck pain, one of the best things to do is to check your pillow. A pillow that does not offer support or is uncomfortable is almost certain to cause discomfort. If your pillow is worn out or misshapen, buy a new one that keeps the head in a comfortable and supported position all through the night.

Get Chiropractic Care

If you’re serious about protecting the neck, one of the best measures that you can add to your life is to visit the chiropractic clinic. Chiropractors may be able to help by treating current pain as well as preventing future pains. They may be able to use gentle manipulation to remove restrictions from the vertebrae, which can reduce the pain you already feel. And if received on a regular basis, it may also prevent the restrictions, as well as the pain, from returning. Chiropractors are well versed in the inner workings of the body, so by adding this to your life, you may find a serious reduction in pain and a serious boost in health as well.
