This video explains the treatment options you can do at home to ease neck pain. Neck pain treatments help relieve and prevent neck pain that commonly results from strain or overuse of the muscles in your neck and upper back. Other causes include poor posture, trauma such as whiplash, infections, or inflammatory diseases.
Neck pain usually occurs around the lower back of the head.
It can also run down into your shoulders and upper arms. Neck pain treatments can help you manage your condition and get back to living life without limitations. Massage therapy can relieve muscle tension, inflammation, and stiffness in your neck.
Most neck pain treatments are self-care measures like exercises and rest. Use your hands to apply pressure along the side of the neck where it pains. When you apply pressure, it often helps to stretch out muscle knots that are causing the pain. Push down your thumb or a massage cane against muscles in your neck and shoulders to stretch them out and allow them to relax more easily. This type of neck pain treatment is often helpful for people who suffer from whiplash injuries as it helps their muscles recover more quickly from trauma.
