Unique Relief For Chronic Neck Pain

Unique Relief For Chronic Neck Pain

Many people suffer from some sort of neck pain at some point, but some experience chronic pain. Women are more likely to endure neck pain than men because osteoarthritis tends to increase in women once their estrogen levels decrease during menopause.

There are the more typical ways to deal with chronic neck pain like anti-inflammatories or over the counter pain relievers, but there are also some more unique ways to tackle the pain.

Unique Relief For Chronic Neck Pain

Drink Water

The spine is made up of approximately eighty percent water between each vertebrae. The water helps serve as a shock absorbent and is needed to keep the spine aligned. With age, the discs can begin to lose water and the risk of degenerative disc disease begins to increase.

Keeping the body well-hydrated may prevent neck pain and the risk of degenerative disc disease. Practice carrying a bottle throughout the day. Make certain times to specifically drink a full glass of water at that time. For example, drink a full glass of water after brushing teeth or with each meal.

Go Hands-Free

People that cradle a phone in their neck can put additional stress on their neck causing stiffness and pain. As an alternative, a hands-free headset can make a world of difference.

Holding a phone at eye level for texting or browsing can be helpful as well. Looking down for long periods of time can add strain to the cervical spine. It’s important to take breaks as often as possible to stretch and rest the neck.

Swim

Swimming can be very therapeutic to the neck and back, providing relief from inflammation, stiffness and pain. Gentle swim strokes that will not cause injury or pain due to twisting or straining are the best approach.

Ice It

Applying ice to the cervical spine at the first signs of pain can help reduce inflammation and pain. Apply ice in twenty-minute intervals throughout the day to ease aches and pains caused by cervical disc degeneration.

Ask A Professional

A physical therapist can recommend exercises to strengthen the neck without causing further injury or trauma. They can also provide and suggest treatment that can help relax and relieve tensed muscles that can cause additional cervical pain.
