In the majority of cases, the symptoms of persistent neck pain can be managed effectively by non-invasive measures as described below. The most effective are exercises and in those who are sedentary, increasing general activity levels.
Exercises can relieve any stiffness in the spine and maintain flexibility at the shoulders:
10 second holds to each side, 2x per day
3×10 repetitions 3-4x per week
20 slow movements up & down, 2x per day
Modifications include raising your seat height, changing the backrest angle, lumbar wedges as well as ensuring there is an appropriate overall set up if working with display screen equipment. Everyone is different so try out slightly different combinations which may work best for you.
