It’s also a common cause of worker disability. The good news is that you can often relieve neck pain by following some simple steps. Here are 5 easy ways to relieve neck & shoulder pain.

Practice Good Posture

Not surprisingly, neck pain & shoulder often occurs as a result of poor posture. Pay attention to your neck position when you’re on the computer or phone. Also, when standing and sitting pay attention to your neck and shoulder position. Following this tip will go a long ways in protecting your neck from injury and associated pain.

Take Frequent Breaks

When you travel long distances, if work long hours at your computer, or if you just stay in a particular position for an extended time, get up, move around and stretch your neck and shoulders.

Exercise

I know this is easier said than done when you suffer from chronic neck & shoulder pain, but staying active can actually help to reduce pain and discomfort. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to hit the gym every other day lifting weights. Rather, try going jogging — or even walking — for 30 minutes in the evening. Light cardiovascular activity encourages blood flow while also protecting against common forms of injury. Also, check out the exercise link below.
