As we start to advance in age, we might start to feel a little more tension in our back and our neck do to the activities we engage in every day. It could be your work that’s putting the most wear and tear on your neck and back, or it could be that cage fighting career you’ve been training for that has you in pain and discomfort.
At O’Connor Family Wellness Chiropractic we’d like to go over a few ways that you can reduce and manage your neck and back pain.
Work Out with Your Neck and Back in Mind
When we hit the gym we usually think about working chest, biceps, and maybe we’ll work in the occasional leg day. It’s crucially important for you to work out your neck and your back. Both areas of the body are made of muscle, muscle that can help support your neck and spine. After you start strengthening your back you’ll notice less pain and you’ll also notice a strengthened core.
Stretch it Out
Incorporating yoga into your routine will pay off in dividends. Work and play will get your body tense, there’s no doubt about it. Yoga or a rigorous stretch routine is the perfect antidote to daily pain and tension in the neck and back.
