Aging can literally be a pain in the neck. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to reduce neck pain caused from aging or injury
These simple tips can help your neck pain symptoms:
Check your environment: Sitting up straight at your desk and putting your computer monitor at eye level to avoid tilting and twisting your head while working can help avoid neck pain. When you’re driving, be sure to take frequent breaks and avoid having your neck bent forward for long period of time.
Stretch: Simple stretching exercises that can be done at your desk or in the car can help relieve the pain. Try these:
Roll your shoulders backwards and down 10 times
Squeeze your shoulder blades together 10 times
Bring your ear to your shoulder 10 times on each side
Check your sleeping conditions: Try sleeping on a firm mattress, without a pillow; or use a special neck pillow to reduce the pressure on your neck.
