It could hit you in the form of muscle tightness or spasms, or cause headaches so severe that concentrating at work is impossible. Whether your neck pain is a result of a recent accident, a decades-old sports injury or one of today’s most common sources: Use of our favorite tech devices, neck pain can disrupt your activities and even your life.
You may have tried over-the-counter or prescription medications, applied store-bought rubs or essential oils or even undergone physical therapy, but your neck pain never really goes away. So, what can you do?
Self-managing your neck pain
There are many ways you can relieve stress and pain in your neck, including participating in the abovementioned physical therapy, which many insurance providers cover. A physical therapist will evaluate your neck to gage your range of motion and flexibility, noting your pain points. Then he or she will work to revitalize your injured or overused muscles, ligaments or tendons through stretching and strengthening exercises. You may also receive heat, ice or electronic stimulation to help relieve your neck pain.
Other self-care remedies include massage, daily stretching and gentle exercises such as yoga and tai chi.
However, should you need a more advanced and guided method to manage your neck pain with the support of board-certified experience, Neurosurgery & Spine Consultants is here to help.
