10 Tips to Prevent Neck Pain through Lifestyle Adjustments
Updated: Dec 8, 2022
Neck pain happens, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it forever. With some lifestyle adjustments, you can prevent neck pain altogether. We at Natural Care Chiropractic in Lindenhurst, IL, take pride in educating our patients about good spinal health. Since many of our patients experience neck pain, it's important to take a step back and see what causes it. Only then can you and Dr. Gopaul take the necessary steps to treat and ultimately prevent your neck pain!
Prevent neck pain by:
- Sleeping on your back
- Drinking plenty of water
- Making sure you are using a comfortable and supported pillow
- Making sure your computer monitor is at eye level
- When texting, keeping your mobile phone at eye level, taking breaks, or using talk-text
- When making a phone call, using a headset or earpiece
- Stretching, exercising, and strengthening your neck muscles
- Carrying weight on your person so that it is evenly distributed
- Practicing a supportive posture (no slumping or hunching!)
- Holding your phone at a distance rather than right in front of you
It’s important to seek professional help if you ever experience numbness, tingling, or pain in your arms, or headaches and weakness. Ineffective pain medication is another indicator that you should see a chiropractor. Dr. Gopaul offers an array of therapies to help patients with neck pain.
