Like you, we are troubled by how quickly neck pain develops. Sometimes it comes on after sleeping in an abnormal position. Other times necks are strained after getting rear ended on the street. Either way, painful necks result in:
- Sharp pain and stiffness.
- Tension headaches.
- Limited ability to look up or over your shoulders.
- Difficulty holding your head up to watch TV.
The main types of neck back pain
A real pain in the neck
Many of our patients seek our help after a car accident or whiplash injuries when the neck muscles and ligaments are strained. Pain can also develop over time due to degenerative changes of the discs and cartilage. The nerves in neck are very sensitive and easily irritated which will send pain impulses into the shoulder and arm alerting you to take immediate attention.
Calm Tissues Down, Build em back up
Throughout 20 years of treating hundreds of necks injuries, I have been able to develop a reliable and effective recovery plan by following a very simple formula: “Calm the tissues down and then load them back up”. This is done by following 4 progressive steps:
Lay flat on your back with a supportive pillow.
Use over the counter neck brace for support.
Find a more comfortable way to move or find a position of relief.
Sit up taller, change posture when moving shoulder.
Activate & Load
Try performing a chin tuck and hold for 30 seconds.
take a 15 minute walk 2x day.
