The More Weapons I Have To Defeat My Neck Pain The Better...



Think of it like a game, the more ways you have to win the game the better chance you have to get better. So the more ways you have to take care of the pain that is ailing you, you have a better chance of getting back to a hundred percent health.

So let’s talk more specifically about neck pain. First you need to know where is the pain is. Is it right side or left side, does it move around, etc... Second, you need to ask yourself “what is the pain level”?, meaning how severe that you could rank it from 0 to 10 with 10 being the most severe and zero being no pain. Third you need to know what makes it better and what makes it worse? It also helps to know how long it’s been there and if the pain travels anywhere.

The more ways that you could deal with the pain or fight the pain, the better. If you’ve dealt with it in the past you may be able to rid yourself of it easier.

Typically, if I have neck pain, I get adjusted. Next, I may use heat or ice. Ice tends to work better if things feel very inflamed. Often times if pain is acute or just started happening. Heat, or a hot shower, if pain has been there longer time is more chronic. Third, I may try a natural gel like Biofreeze.(link)

The bottom line is that you want to get rid of the preferably naturally. If you just take something, you are covering up the pain and it could be getting worse. “How to Get Rid of Pain” - m.wikihow.com. Down the road it may be much harder to get rid of it.

Just Because It’s Broken, It Doesn’t Mean You Can’t Fix It!

My son seems to have broken his Basketball hoop that’s inside the house. This way it can go up and stay where we put it so for example when you turn five you move your hoop to height five. When he’s six you can move it up to six, or just move it up whenever he’s ready. Of course, somehow he broke the piece that holds the hoop up at that level,so we have to find something to hold the hoop at that level.

What do we do?; we can’t find that piece? Well, you must improvise. It’s analogous to your neck or spine. If you can’t fix it one way - try another. Whether that method is not feasible for you, or you’ve found something that works better. “Just Do It”!

“My Neck Hurts All The Time”



It’s no fun to be in pain, especially if it’s all the time! You need to ask yourself “What am I doing or not doing that is causing or not causing this pain?” Or “What is making it worse or better?”

The big thing to know is that it most likely won’t get better on its own, and may very get worse as time goes on.

So, here’s a few things to start doing:
  • Start using a neck pillow - you may not be used to one, so it can take some getting used too.
  • Have a daily neck stretch and exercise routine. The key here is “regular”. Even when things are feeling better, you need to stick with your regimen.
  • Let the hot water from the shower soak on that neck. It’s like a hot pack relaxing and loosening muscles.
With these things that neck won’t be hurting all-the-time. Also, because of that, it won’t be on your mind constantly.

It’ll Get Better On It’s Own



Well, it’s always nice to hope. When we are talking neck pain, it probably won’t get on it’s own.

Chances are that if the pain magically disappears, it’s still there getting worse. Remember that your body only feels a small percentage of nerve pressure.

Unfortunately, that means there can be a problem in the body, and you may not know it’s there.

All-the-while, things could be getting worse. When this issue resurfaces, the problem may be much worse. It also doesn’t “go away” very easily.

So if you have pain or problem, you should address it, because, even if it does seem to go away, chances are that it’s still there.
