Things You Can Do at Home to Improve Neck Health

Neck Pain, Neck Ache, Neck Injury, Neck Trauma, Neck Alignment, text neck, texting Neck pain is all too common in today’s world. In fact, it affects about 70% of people in America. However, there are some proactive steps you can begin doing today so as to avoid future issues with your neck.

Ergonomics at the Office

Sitting at a desk all day can negatively affect the neck. One way to assist in this area is to use some ergonomic supplies for your office. There are ways to adjust your computer monitor so as to keep the computer screen at eye level. You may also be able to use a system to keep your documents at eye level so as to avoid continuously looking down. It is important for you not to stress your neck too much. This is done by making sure your head is positioned over your neck, not bent forward. Using an ear piece while talking on the phone is much safer than talking with the phone between the ear and shoulder.

Proper Posture

Posture is important whether you are sitting or standing. It is vital to keep your spine as straight as possible at all times. Do not sit in one position for an extended period of time. In an hour’s time, it is a good idea to get up 3 to 4 times and move about, stretching your neck, back and leg muscles.

Sleeping posture is important also. This means not sleeping on your stomach. Sleeping on your back or on your side with a pillow between your knees is ideal. Using the right pillow is important as well. Something that does not prop the head up, but keeps it supported is a good idea.
