Muscle neck pain
Doctor Answers (4) on Muscle neck pain
As you discussed your neck pain.
Because of sitting for long time your neck goes to spasm which is actually a protective mechanism of neck muscles to warn you to stop strain them any further, so they start giving pain.
And further on nerve gets compressed and you get radiating pain to your shoulder and arm.
Follow these simple steps
1. Hot fomentation for 8 to 10 minutes
2. Than give gentle stretch to your neck (for example if left side neck is painful )
Lying flat, put your left hand under your left hip so that it's stable
Than with your right hand encircle your head from top, your right hand touching your left ear.
With your right hand give a gentle stretch by bending your head towards right (means as if your right ear trying to touch right shoulder )
But again just give a gentle stretch for 10 to 15 seconds followed by rest.
Do this for 4 to 5 times in a go and for 2 to 3 times a day.
After stretching have a cool down session by taking ice pack for 5 to 7 minutes.
You will feel ease within 3 to 4 days.
If not please consult a good orthopaedic doctor.
