How to Reduce That Nagging Neck Pain and Keep Your Spine Healthy

Have you ever woken up in the morning with a crick in the neck? What about dealing with a stiff neck after a long car ride or hours in front of your office desk? Chances are, you have experienced one of these or some other sort of nagging neck pain in your life. Neck pain is a fairly common problem, and most people will suffer from this at one point or another. The problem with neck pain is that the neck is used so much! From walking, exercising, and even holding our heads up, our necks are pretty important. To get rid of neck pain in your life, and get your spine healthy and strong, check out these tips that can get you moving down the right path.

Exercise on a Regular Basis

If you learn to exercise everyday, you really can’t go wrong. It’s just so good for you! Along with helping you stay at a healthy weight and making you stronger, it can also help eliminate typical aches and pains like neck pain. As you exercise, you help your body maintain flexibility and range of motion. This means that it gets injured far less often and is better able to move and stretch without causing problems. What’s more, exercise might be able to work out problems like stiff muscles or cricks in the neck. Even if you just walk or do a soothing workout like yoga, keeping with a regular routine can go a really long way.

Sleep Correctly

Yep...there really is a right and wrong way to sleep. When you sleep wrong, it can contribute majorly to neck pain. The first step is to make sure you get a good and supportive pillow. It should be soft, but not too soft, and it should not make your head lie at an awkward angle. If your pillow doesn’t feel quite right, try, try again until you have found your maximum comfort level. Another great idea is to sleep on your side. Prop a pillow between your knees and one under your head, and your spine will be placed at an optimal angle for the best support and comfort.

Get Chiropractic Care

Getting chiropractic care on a regular basis can do wonders for your spine. Chiropractors often work by aligning any problems that lie along the spine. Through normal wear and tear, the vertebrae of the spine become misaligned from time to time. When this happens, it can cause pain anywhere along the spine including the neck. By seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis, you may be able to fix misalignments that are already there as well as prevent further pain from happening in the future.

If you would like to try chiropractic care to help reduce neck pain, get to The Joint...the Chiropractic Place.

A chiropractor at The Joint may be able to align your spine, eliminate your neck pain, and help keep your spine in great health now and in the future.
