Are you experiencing neck pain after an injury? Neck pain can be caused by an acute injury or begin gradually from poor posture or a multitude of health conditions. This pain can impact your ability to participate in daily activities and your overall health. Proper treatment can help you get back on track so you can enjoy life again. Here are three things you can do to relieve neck pain after an injury.

Seek Professional Medical Care

Seeking medical care immediately can help prevent chronic pain or serious health conditions from occurring. Your doctor can examine you and recommend the best treatment options to relieve pain and mitigate further damage. You may also receive recommendations on lifestyle changes to prevent future injury.

Pay Attention to Your Posture

There are lifestyle habits you do that can aggravate your neck pain after an injury. Slouching over your phone or computer for an extended period of time can cause significant pain. Adjust your screen to eye level by propping or holding your phone in front of your face while maintaining proper posture. Sit in an ergonomic chair or use pillows for your lower back. Speak to your doctor about posture correction and strengthening exercises to help relieve pain and prevent further injury.

Adjust Your Pillow

Proper sleep at night is vital for healing neck pain after an injury. Different sleep positions can affect your level of pain and comfort. Pillows can help you keep your spine correctly aligned to boost comfort levels. You can use a thick pillow between the shoulder and head if you are a side sleeper or a thin pillow if you sleep on your stomach. If you sleep on your back, make sure your pillow raises your head without pushing it forward.

Patient Reviews

My knees were so bad I could hardly walk. After 3 injections no pain.

Dr. Michael Hanowell has relieved my sciatica pain. I was in a wheelchair and after the first epidural I was able to walk. After a recent car accident he put several injections in my back and neck which relieved the pain greatly. He and his staff are very considerate and do everything possible to work with you on relieving your pain.

Mike D.

Dr. Hanowell treated my sciatica pain & I went from being in a wheelchair and barely able to walk to being pain free. He is very professional, caring, and conscientious. He has given me several epidurals and trigger point injections for various issues related to age and injuries and his treatments were very effective. His staff is also very professional.

Pain Healed
