Neck Pain Treatment, Better Ergonomics - How to Prevent Neck Pain
Working at a computer all day can do a number on your neck.
With more people working from home in environments that aren’t always conducive to productivity and ergonomics, neck pain and headaches are sure to be on the rise.
If you’re experiencing neck pain, you should see your Tallahassee chiropractor for a neck pain treatment plan, which includes preventative measures.
An Ounce of Prevention – How Your Chiropractor Can Prevent Pain
You don’t have to suffer from chronic neck pain and headaches just because you work at a computer desk all day. Your Tallahassee chiropractor can provide practical ergonomic recommendations that will make your workday more comfortable. These include:
- Keeping your body in neutral posture as much as possible
- Keeping elbows and knees bent at a 90-degree angle while working
- Using a footrest if necessary
- Investing in an ergonomic keyboard
- Investing in a comfortable, adjustable chair
- Raising your computer monitor to eye level
- Making sure you have adequate lighting
Another tip your chiropractor will likely offer is to take breaks regularly and do some sort of movement. Go for a walk, do core strengthening exercises, or perform stretches that loosen the muscles of your neck and shoulders.
Why Try Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment in Tallahassee
If you already have neck pain, Dr. Gregory Iseman wants to help you get relief fast. Therefore, your neck pain treatment plan will include spinal adjustments as well as adjunct services.
Spinal adjustments keep your neck and head in proper alignment. They also reduce muscle strain and tension of the tendons and ligaments. All of which can significantly reduce your pain levels.
Adjunct services include therapeutic ultrasound and isometric strengthening exercises as a course of care to further relax and elongate tight, sore muscles.
