Back to HomeNeck ache is one of the most common afflictions in adults. This is not unexpected, considering that the human head weighs around eight pounds and is held up completely by the muscles of the neck and upper back.
Different activities in adult life may inflect stress and strain on the neck tissues, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Some of these various activities in adult life include sitting too long at a desk, driving too long, sitting in front of a computer too much, bad posture, bad sleeping positions, and emotional stress.
Some home remedies that may be used to alleviate neck pain are applying heat using a microwave heating pad, such as the hot Cherry-Pit-Pac, massaging, stretching exercises, and rest. There are steps you can take to help prevent neck pain. Some of these steps are to use a hands free phone when talking for long periods, not sleeping on your stomach, and support your neck on long car rides with a pillow, such as the Buckwheat Hull Travel/Reading Pillow.
You should also use a good durable pillow at bedtime that conforms to your neck, such as a
Buckwheat Hull Bed Pillow.
