In Dubai, a stiff neck isn't usually an indication of a serious medical problem, but it can impede your daily activities and make it hard to get to sleep. The cause of a stiff neck can be attributed to a multitude of issues, including poor posture at work, sleeping wrong, straining through exercise, anxiety, or health issues. Try these steps to bring relief to your neck.
Using Massage and Alternative Treatments to Bring Relief
Massage your neck.
Massage therapy is one of the best ways to relieve a stiff neck. If you're massaging your own neck, use this technique:
Warm up the back of your neck by rubbing up and down with your hands.
With gentle pressure, use your fingertips to rub in a circular motion on your neck. Focus on the areas that are most stiff, but rub your entire neck for relief.
Repeat this motion up and down your neck for several minutes.
Visit a massage therapist.
A massage therapist will work with you to figure out where your body is holding tension. While your neck may be stiff, you may actually have tension in other parts of your back or shoulders that builds in your neck.
Check with your health insurance to see if massage is covered by your health plan.
Acupuncture is the Chinese treatment of pain and other ailments by penetrating various strategic points of the skin with tiny needles. Although some question acupuncture’s effectiveness, many chronic neck-pain sufferers swear by this treatment.
See an acupuncture therapist for a consultation and ask them specifically about treating neck stiffness or neck pain.
Use moist heat on your neck.
Heat helps tightened muscles relax, and moist heat is better than dry heat, as it can penetrate into the neck more effectively.Apply heat to the back or neck area for at least 20 minutes at a time, three times daily.
A moist heating pad (available at drug stores) is the best choice for applying heat to your neck, as the temperature can be controlled and applied for longer periods of time. Alternately, use a hot water bottle or take a hot shower or bath.
