10 Tips to Prevent Neck Pain through Lifestyle Adjustments

Updated: Dec 8, 2022

neck pain

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.

Prior to visiting Natural Care I was plagued with migraine pains. Some so severe that they would take me out of work and life for 3-5 days at a time. Multiple times a month.

I had been to numerous neurologists, had had several studies done to understand where and how they were coming. I had been diagnosed many different types of medication that only gave other side effects like weight gain, low energy, and tired all the time. We started the Atlas procedure last year after my neurologist recommended botox as the next step to try. I really didn't want to go that route so my husband convinced me to come to see Dr Mark. This was the best decision…
