How to Ge Rid of a Stiff Neck!

Bottom Line: 

A stiff neck can often be traced to postural issues that contribute to weakened neck muscles. The majority of us are working on computers and staring down at smartphones for hours on end each day, and that’s left an estimated 20% of us living with daily neck pain over this past year. That’s because weakened muscular support means additional stress on your spinal joints. Over time, that extra stress can change how you move and increase the pressure on your spinal discs, which can eventually lead to neck pain. 

Why it Matters: 

That habit of looking down at our computers or phones all day often means we’re living with chronically tired neck muscles. That stress adds up and can also result in the joints of your neck not moving correctly. At that point, it's only a matter of time before you wake up with a stiff neck or turn your head during the day and are greeted by an intense muscle discomfort or pain. Wondering how to get rid of a stiff neck? Here are 3 smart steps you can take:

 1. Perform range of motion focused exercises each day that both stretch and strengthen the muscles that support the joints in your neck. 

2. Invest in a supportive pillow that you find comfortable for how you sleep and will keep your head in a neutral position throughout the night. 

3. Schedule regular spinal adjustments to help maintain proper movement patterns with regard to your neck and spinal joints.

  • "This was my first chiropractic visit and I will definitely continue to see Dr. Venessa! The space is beautiful and clean. The person working reception was welcoming, knowledgeable and seemed happy to answer my questions. I was able to complete my paperwork before coming in so there was no wait. Dr. Venessa asked me some questions and did a sort of assessment before my adjustment. She kept me informed of what she would be doing and has a nice bedside manner so nothing seemed awkward. She finished my adjustment and I checked out. All in all I had a great experience in the office but what happened after was even better- my energy increased like crazy! At first I didn’t even consider it might have been from my adjustment. I was just talking with my husband when he asked if I thought it may have been from my chiro appointment so I googled it and apparently that’s common! So again, very happy with my experience and I will be back!"
