Neck Pain Causes and Treatment

Neck pain can be either acute or chronic and can come about due to a variety of reasons.

Sometimes neck pain can occur as the result of an accident, maybe a fender bender, or even a work-related injury. Neck pain can also come about due to having poor posture, not to mention staring at a screen (whether that be on a computer or on a smartphone) for long periods of time with our heads tilted at uncomfortable angles.

We also don’t normally exercise our necks properly, most of us, so it’s important to have a wellness protocol designed with your neck in mind.

First, it’s a good idea to start exercising your neck, then, at the end of your day, make sure to stretch your neck out. If you don’t have any equipment to get it done, simply apply resistance with your own hands/strength, then make forward and backward motions, then side to side motions, getting a 360-degree workout.

Stretch your neck using the same motions. Make small circles with your nose and eventually make the circles bigger and bigger, which will help release tension in your neck.

Another great way to relieve neck pain and neck tension is to visit the chiropractor. Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation and learn more about the drug-gree pain relief benefits of our treatments.
