Face / Neck

Below you’ll find some common causes of neck muscle pain, as well as how to achieve neck pain relief.

Most neck pain is the result of the strain experienced during everyday activity. Some activities that are commonly associated with neck pain are:

  1. awkward sleeping position
  2. stress and worry
  3. prolonged use of the computer
  4. long periods of driving
  5. extended talking on the phone without a headset
  6. prolonged exposure to a cool draft such as sleeping with a fan or air conditioning
  7. participating in a physical activity without stretching
  8. Any other activity which leaves the neck stationary or under stress for an extended amount of time

For neck pain caused by one of these factors, over the counter pain medicine and ant-inflammatory medication should help ease your pain, however time is indeed needed in order to fully recover. Many people try a combination of heat and ice in order to ease the pain, however results vary. Most neck pain caused by these factors tends to go away within a few days to a week, gradually feeling better as you go on. To prevent the return of such pain be sure to make a conscious effort to keep your neck stretched out and moving during your daily activity. If you suspect sleeping position to be the problem, consider adding another pillow. Many people also find chiropractic help or physical therapy to be beneficial.

Chronic head neck pain could be the result of a more serious factor suck as injury (whiplash is common), osteoporosis, scoliosis, or a slipped disc. If you suffer from chronic neck pain, be sure to consult your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Neck pain can often be related to shoulder pain and back ache pain so be sure to read up on mid back pain, and  upper back pain ,as well as the relationship between neck shoulder pain & shoulder blade pain.
