Tips on How to Reduce Neck Pain
By Donna Stark
Neck pain bothering you again? How many times has that happened this month? Once? Twice? More than a few? If it always seems like your neck is hurting, it's time to do something about it! Because when neck pain is ignored, you could be setting yourself up for back, shoulder, and head pain, as well as other serious health conditions! But what can be done about it? With the exception of a heating pad, is there anything else? Well, you came to the right place to find out! Your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic have some suggestions for you.
Alignment issues are one of the main reasons why your neck may be in pain, so head on in for an adjustment by your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic. Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, and all-natural way to alleviate pain and restore mobility. The adjustments you receive will place your spine in proper alignment, ease muscle tension, and remove any nerve interference that is found in your neck and surrounding areas. You can also start looking forward to less pain and stiffness while driving and working because chiropractic care helps to improve range of motion too.
Redesign Your Workspace
You may be placing your neck at risk if you sit at a desk and work on a computer all day. Sitting in one position can lead to increased stress and strain on your back, neck, and shoulders, and that can lead to some serious neck discomfort. To improve your work environment, invest in some ergonomic furniture, keep your monitor at eye level, and take plenty of breaks throughout your day to stand up, stretch, and wiggle the stiffness out of your joints.
Change the Way You Sleep
Did you ever consider that your sleeping position could be causing your pain? Or that you may need a new mattress or pillow set? Take some time before you go to bed tonight to look these over, and if you see any problems, be sure to address them right away. Ask your chiropractor about the healthiest sleep position for your body, replace your mattress about every seven years or so, and buy a new pillow every other year (or sooner if it has lost its shape).
Say Goodbye to Neck Pain
Neck pain is the absolute worst, but with the tips above and routine chiropractic care, you can finally start to enjoy your days more. And if you need more guidance on how to reduce the pain you are feeling, just ask the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic when you come in for an adjustment. They will be sure to help!
