A Pain in the Neck

female neck painEarlier and earlier in life, people are reporting severe neck pain. Thanks to the advent of technology, there’s always a device to stare at. For every inch forward that your head moves when you slouch over your phone, computer or tablet, ten pounds of pressure are added to your neck. No wonder neck pain seems to be more prevalent than ever before!

So, what’s the key to stopping neck pain?

Simple: prevention. With an understanding of how your spine works, you may avoid pain and its devastating effects on your overall well-being. We’ll help you gain an awareness of what causes your condition and what you can do to stop these factors from taking a toll on your health.

The Many Causes of Your Neck Pain

There are a few common sources of neck pain, such as

  • Sitting all day
  • Sleeping on your stomach
  • Car accident/injury resulting in whiplash
  • Improper posture
It’s important to keep in mind that the pain you feel is a symptom. The underlying problem is the improper positioning of your spine. As a result, you’ll feel tightness, stiffness or soreness. I addition to neck pain, you may feel discomfort in your upper back, shoulders, and jaw, as well as debilitating headaches.

What You Can Do

You want to take your health into your own hands. We get it! That’s why we teach our patients what they can do. When it comes to neck pain, posture is the biggest factor that can influence how you feel. You should keep your posture in mind at all times, whether you’re sitting or standing.

When you’re on your phone, position it close to your eye level. If you’re seated, put a pillow under your elbows to raise your phone. At your computer, align your monitor screen so that your gaze rests directly in the middle. That way, you won’t need to bend forward while you work.

These are just a few of the tips we provide to our patients. We’ll talk to you about all aspects of your lifestyle to see where we can make incremental improvements that will add up to remarkable changes.
