Tips to prevent and reduce neck pain

1. If you work at a computer make sure your monitor is centered and that you have sufficient lighting. 2. Sit with good posture…Don’t slouch while sitting or standing. Think plumb line: ears in line with shoulders-in line with hips-in line with ankles. 3. Don’t sleep on your stomach because the only way to breathe from that position is with your neck rotated to one side causing misalgnment at the cervcical and lumbar spine. 4. Do simple range of motion stretches like turning head from left to right, side to side and small forward neck circles. 5. Strengthen the postural muscles of the upper back with rowing exercise’s.
