Neck pain can be prevented in most cases unless you are in an accident.

Certain lifestyle choices can be made to prevent neck pain. Those lifestyle choices include:

  • Stretching
  • Staying hydrated
  • Avoiding physical activity that puts an unnecessary strain on your neck
  • Improving your posture 
  • Keeping your neck moving rather than in one spot for hours (for example office workers staring at a computer)
  • Staying active 

If you are experiencing neck pain, it is best to see a chiropractor, you can book in with Dr. Paije or Dr. Alison, who can perform a thorough examination to determine the cause of your neck pain. They can then treat you and give you specific exercises and advice for you to do at home to assist your recovery and prevent neck pain recurrence.
