Are you having trouble with neck pain or pain in the upper back? It’s a common problem, and it can be terribly annoying. The good thing about it is that it can be resolved quite easily in most cases, and it usually doesn’t require numerous expensive treatment sessions.

How to get rid of neck pain

So, what are you supposed to do if you suffer from neck pain? It depends on several things, such as the reason for the pain for example. Many people have a work where they spend much time in front of a computer screen. It’s common that the screen is placed to low, so that you have to look down hours and hours every day, which would give everyone a neck pain eventually. This can be easily resolved; you just need to get a new working chair, which can be lowered or raised to fit the height of your screen. Another thing to consider is that you should be careful when using the phone. Don’t lean the head toward the phone when talking, try to use a headset instead, it will be better for your neck.

Another good thing to do is to massage the muscles in your neck. You just need to use your thumb and two more fingers. You need to find the tightness in your neck and massage it in a circular movement.

An icepack will also help relieve the pain, just like a heating pad. Make sure to have both of these at home, and alternate between them for the best effect.

Swimming is good for the neck and back

Many people choose to stay in bed, or at least at home, when they suffer from back pain or neck pain. That’s not the best to do though. You should try swimming, as this is a very gentle, yet effective way of exercising and getting the body back in shape. You can also take regular walks. They doesn’t have to be quick, just make sure to keep moving on a daily basis. 30-40 minutes will be enough.

If home remedies doesn’t help, it can be a good idea to go for chiropractic care. You could also try acupuncture, as this is a good method to use if the pain is caused by stress and tension. You could also try doing yoga, as this will help you relax while stretching.

I love zumba, aerobics, jogging and of course power walking. My interest in health and training has grown since I became a mom. It all started when I wanted to lose a few extra pounds that I gained during my pregnancies, but it increased to become an honest interest in exercising and today I find it important to have a healthy lifestyle. I've also worked as a skincare consultant for a couple of years and I love beauty related topics just as much as health related topics. I love makeup and skincare and I'm looking forward to share my hobbies with you!
