Has your neck been feeling stiff and painful over the past few months? For a lot of people, the shift in their activities and ergonomics associated with quarantine has brought on significant neck pain, and unfortunately it doesn’t seem to go away with just stretching. The good news is that there are several things you can do do get rid of your quarantine neck pain, and I’m going to show you exactly how to do it in this video.
With the increase in the need to work or look for work from home in a less-than-ideal ergonomic setup combined with the extra layer of stress blanketed on by the pandemic, neck pain is one of the most common muskuloskeletal conditions for which people seek out help of a sports chiropractor. You may have already tried some home remedies like ibuprofin, ice, heat, and stretching, but you’re still suffering from bad neck pain that gets in the way of being able to focus at work and maybe keeps you up at night or gets in the way of enjoying quality time w your family. These home remedies may make things feel better for a short period of time, but unfortuntalely they just aren’t going to get you all the way there to fixing the issue, and by the end of this video, you’ll understand why that is!
There is a certain crossover-point (and we’ll talk about that later in the video) where conditions progress past the point of just tight muscles and into the cyclical cumulative injury cycle. That’s the point where professional services like sports chiropractic or physical therapy are needed to help break the cycle. But usually things build up and build up for quite awhile before needing professional help, so as long as you catch things early, there are ways to fix your own neck pain. And if you are at a mid-point in the cycle you may be able to at least decrease your pain, or keep things from getting worse until you can get in to see a provider. In this video, I’m going to share with you my top tips for getting rid of your painful and stiff neck so that you can get back to moving, playing, working, and surviving this pandemic better!
