1. Good morning! Wake up and stretch.

Feel fresh and rejuvenated by waking up your neck and shoulder muscles. Increase circulation and ease tension by engaging the muscles in these simple stretches before starting your day.

  • Roll your shoulders backwards and down 10 times
  • Squeeze your shoulder blades together 10 times
  • Push your head backwards into your head rest or chair for 30 seconds
  • Bring your ear to your shoulder 10 times on each side

2. Ice Ice Therapy.

You may have guessed that ice is an effective way to help out pain, but did you know that you can place the ice on other parts of the body to help with neck pain? Neck pain can cause numbness in the back of the head, neck, shoulders, and even hands due to the placement of our nerves.

Place the ice pack behind your neck first, then relocate it between the thumb and index finger, in the middle of the eyebrows, and on the shoulders. Transition between these key places to alleviate widespread pain.

3. At-home neck massage.

Have you been craving a deeply soothing massage? Imagine kneading away the pain in your neck with the relaxing comfort of a heat-infused massage. Thanks to technology, you can sit back in your own couch, bed, or car and feel this relief. DR-HO'S Neck Pain Therapy was specifically designed to rid people of pain wherever they are. And yes, the massage heats up to further relax the muscles. Can you say stay at-home spa?

4. Up your Magnesium intake.

This mineral assists with the contraction and relaxation of muscles. Pain can be reduced by taking a supplement to increase your intake or finding natural sources in the following items:

  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Beans
  • Soy products
  • Whole grains
  • Epsom salt (absorbs through skin)

5. Try traction therapy.

Neck traction helps to stretch out the muscles in the shoulder and neck and take the pressure of the head's weight off the sensitive muscles that work hard to support it every day. You can use a traction device like DR-HO'S Neck Comforter, to feel this relief at home.

6. Drink more water.

You know water is essential for your health, but did you know it's essential for reducing pain in your spine? The vertebrae in each spine needs water to maintain proper alignment; proper alignment takes pressure off the spine. Upping hydration can help with the alignment in your neck and therefore, reduce that annoying pain.

7. Good night! Sleep on your back with a proper pillow.

Okay so this tip isn't quick but it's easy. Change your everyday sleeping habits by ensuring you have a neck-conscious support pillow and be certain you're sleeping on your back every night. It's not uncommon for people to wake up with severe pains in their neck after twisting their neck the wrong way for hours in the night.

Your spine and neck are not designed for sleeping on your stomach. Correct your sleeping position and be mindful that your spine is resting in its natural curve.
