Postural neck pain

Ditch the Desk Hunch: Relieve Your Neck Pain with Braybrook Physio & Allied Health Clinic

Is your neck aching from slouching over your keyboard or staring at your phone? You’re not alone. Postural neck pain is a common culprit, caused by poor posture that strains the muscles, ligaments, and joints in your neck. But you don’t have to suffer in silence! At Braybrook Physio & Allied Health Clinic, we offer effective solutions to help you conquer neck pain and reclaim your comfort.

Unmasking the Culprit

Poor posture, often from prolonged sitting or hunching over screens, puts excessive stress on your neck structures. This overload can lead to:

  • Aching neck: That annoying pain that flares up after spending too much time in one position, often affecting one or both sides of your neck and upper back.
  • Tense muscles: Feeling knotted or stiff in your neck? Those overworked muscles are crying out for relief.
  • Restricted movement: Can’t quite turn your head without a twinge? Pain often limits your neck’s range of motion.
  • Headaches: That pounding in your head could be linked to your neck tension.

Breaking the Pain Cycle

Before letting postural pain lead to lasting damage, there are steps you can take:

  • Move it or lose it: Break up your sitting with frequent stretches and walks.
  • Posture perfect: Ditch the slouch and learn proper sitting and standing positions.
  • Get active: Regular exercise strengthens your core and supports good posture.
  • Sit-stand savvy: Consider a sit-stand desk to reduce static neck strain.
  • Pillow talk: Find the right pillow to keep your neck in alignment while you sleep.
  • Ergonomic edge: Optimise your workspace to minimise neck strain.
