Little Tips to Help Protect Your Neck

By Genevieve Cunningham

We literally use our necks all the time. If you're holding up your head, turning to look, exercising, looking up or down, working -- basically doing anything except for sleeping -- your neck is engaged and working. But for some reason, we don't give our necks much thought. They just do what they're supposed to, and we very often take them for granted. Until there's pain. When pain is involved, we suddenly need help right now because, again, we use the neck for everything! Luckily, we don't have to wait until pain is present to care for our necks. If you'd like to make neck health a habit, take a look at these little tips for long-term neck protection. 

Exercise is So Important

Exercise helps us stay strong, but it also helps us stay flexible. And flexibility is important for neck health. Since we're constantly turning and bending the neck, stiffness in this area can really be a problem. But exercise helps loosen the body so that movement of all kinds becomes easier. You can choose any sort of exercise that you enjoy -- running, aerobics, Pilates, etc. -- and then incorporate it into your normal routine for relief and long-term better health. 

Technology Can Hurt

There's no denying that we all love technology. We really love it. In fact, it's often the first thing we do in the morning (check our phones) and the last thing we do before bed (check our phones). Not to mention, we also use it all day long. And while technology certainly comes with benefits, it can also bring pain and irritation to the back and neck. If you want to protect your neck, you may have to cut down on technology use. You can't spend every waking hour on your phone. Limit your usage, and your neck will get a much needed break. 

A Chiropractor Is Your Friend

One of the best things that you can do for your neck (and back too!) is to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors use a gentle procedure to remove restrictions, reduce pain, and restore function. Many find it incredibly beneficial for maintaining both a pain-free existence and a healthy range of motion in the neck. Whether your neck is currently in pain or you're looking for more prevention, chiropractic care is an excellent choice.
