Prevent Neck Pain

Prevention and early intervention is the key
Neck pain can be very disabling especially when it affects your mobility and ability to concentrate during the day. Quite often the cumulative effects of faulty head posture, excessive reading and computer work or stomach sleeping can cause fatigue of the postural muscles or stretch to the joint capsules.

Evidence suggests that manual therapy used early can help reduce the symptoms. This can include joint mobilization, traction and soft tissue releases to allow the joints and muscles to move without pain.
To prevent acute neck pain, follow these three steps:

1. Avoid stomach sleeping since your head will be excessively turned to allow breathing while sleeping.

2. Tuck your chin in and maintain an upright sitting posture throughout the day. Use a towel roll or cushion to support the lower back, which will keep your head in a neutral potion.

3. Every hour or two, look up toward the ceiling with your fingers supporting the base of your neck. This intermittent neck extension will reduce the cumulative effects of faulty posture throughout the day.
