tips to a healthier neck
Tips to a Healthier Neck
  • Always stretch before exercise or other strenuous physical activity
  • At home or work, make sure the work surface is at a comfortable height
  • Don’t lean when standing or sitting. When standing keep the weight balanced on the feet.
  • Sit in a chair with good lumbar support and proper position and height for the task. Keep the shoulders back. Switch sitting positions often and periodically walk around the office or gently stretch muscles to relieve tension. If one must sit for a long period of time, rest the feet on a low stool.
  • Wear comfortable, low heeled shoes.
  • Avoid weight lifting in poor postures.

Tips to a Healthier Neck
  • Sleep on the side to reduce ay curve in the spine. Always sleep on a firm surface.
  • Maintain proper nutrition and diet to reduce and prevent excessive weight. A diet with sufficient daily intake of calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D helps to promote proper bone growth.
  • If one smokes, quit smoking. Smoking reduces blood flow to the spine and causes the spinal discs to degenerate.
  • Avoid excessive stress. Stress will also contribute to the pain intensity.
