While there is no one solution to curing the pain in your neck, there is a lot you can do to help with problems arising:
- Think about your posture when sitting or standing, and make sure your desk is designed to help you sit (or stand) comfortably.
- Regular exercise will improve muscle tone and posture, while also helping to work against the muscle-tightening effects of stress.
- If you have sustained an acute neck injury, it may be time to consult a qualified health professional for a course of soft tissue massage, mobilisation, dry needling and scenar therapy. Taping problem areas can help support your posture, while a specific program of stretching and strengthening can promote greater stability from the neck muscles.
