Your neck, while incredibly flexible and strong, is also vulnerable to injury. It consists of a network of vertebrae, muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, blood vessels, and other tissues. It serves to support the weight of your head, enable mobility, and house your spinal cord, trachea, esophagus, and thyroid gland, among other structures.
Given all that your neck does on a daily basis, it comes as no surprise that neck pain is such a common complaint. Some of the issues that can cause or exacerbate neck pain include:
Any of these problems can lead to significant neck pain, which can get in the way of your normal daily routine.
There are cases in which no degree of prevention can stop neck pain. Examples include traumatic injury and problems arising from meningitis or rheumatoid arthritis. In many instances, however, you can take steps to reduce your risk of neck pain.
Improving your posture is one of the most powerful things you can do to lower your risk of neck pain. Take care to embrace good posture when sitting and standing.
Carefully evaluate your daily habits to look for areas where ergonomic improvements can be made. Adjust the height of your computer monitor to avoid neck strain, and take frequent breaks.
Try to avoid carrying heavy bags on one or both shoulders. Over time this can cause significant neck pain. Improving your sleep position and investing in a supportive pillow can also make a big difference.
Whiplash is a type of injury that occurs when your neck is suddenly thrust into an abnormal backward then forward orientation. That sudden and uncontrolled movement often occurs during auto accidents, especially if you’re hit from behind.
Whiplash is characterized by damage to the soft tissue in your neck. Some cases are relatively mild and resolve after a period of rest, while others involve nerve damage that requires more intensive therapy.
Electric cell signaling technology can help treat whiplash by improving the way your nerve and muscle tissues communicate. Treatments are brief, painless, require no general anesthesia, and don’t rely on pharmaceutical therapies. If you’re searching for a drug-free pain management option, neoGEN-SeriesⓇ therapy is something to consider.
