Neck pain is very common if you are studying for long hours. Exam season is going on, and Your mind is focused on a lot of things when you’re studying, like exams, projects, deadlines, scheduling, remembering what you need to learn, and learning it, all at the same time! It’s easy to let studying take over your time and attention, and even though it’s important, this can make you forget about your health. And neck pain can be really disturbing and attention breaking. So, here’s 7 simple ways to avoid neck pain suggested by best pain management expert in Pune, Dr. Jagdish Patil.

But if you are struggling to cope with neck pain, consult Dr. Jagdish Patil for pain management with non-surgical options which will relieve pain immediately.

What is the role of posture in neck pain?

There are numerous changes that occur in our bodies as we age. Our bodies experience regular wear and tear as we age, which might lead to future difficulties. Joint pain is one such consequence. Some people have acute pain in their joints as they age, making daily life activities challenging.

There are numerous causes of joint pain, but the most common are arthritis, bursitis, lupus, gout, infectious infections, an injury, and so on. Only surgery can relieve discomfort and increase patients’ mobility in severe situations.

1. Correct Posture:

When it comes to neck pain, your posture is the most important thing you can do. Spending a lot of time in the wrong position will be very bad for your neck and back. Your ears should be right above your shoulders, which should be right above your hips, and so on. This will keep your back at a right angle to your knees, which should be at a right angle to your ankles at all times.

2. Take small breaks in between:

One of the easiest ways to avoid pain caused by sitting for too long is to take breaks often. It doesn’t matter if you just get up and walk to the kitchen for a glass of water every half hour. Take frequent breaks to avoid neck pain.

3. Neck stretching:

Stretches you can do at your desk can also help you stay flexible and keep your neck from becoming stiff and tense while you study for a long time during the day. Back pain can be relieved by some easy stretches that can be done at your desk such as a seated spinal rotation stretch.
You should be sitting upright in your chair with your feet firmly on the ground. You should hold the chair with the hand on the opposite side of the side you will be stretching, so if you want to stretch your left side first, you should hold the chair with your right hand. Lean your head slowly down until you feel a light stretch, hold for 15-20 seconds, then do the same thing on the other side. Do this for both sides.

4. Screen level should be at your eye level:

Connecting your laptop to a separate screen, or a monitor is often very helpful. Using an elevated desk for the keyboard, a book holder, etc. can prevent unnecessary bending. Such simple modifications go a long way in preventing neck pain.

5. Use lumbar support:

There are things you can use to help you keep good posture. One way to do this is to use lumbar support. A lumbar pillow is a cushion that you can put on your chair to help support your lower back.

6. Diet & hydration:

Keep yourself hydrated while studying. Also keep in mind to eat healthy food which will have variety of vitamins, protein and minerals. Vitamin D & calcium are important for bone health so don’t forget to get some sunlight and milk or meat product in your diet.

7. Home remedies for neck pain

There are joints in your spine called facet joints, and if they’re inflamed, they can cause muscle trigger point pains in your neck. Trigger points are small knots in the muscle or fascia, which is a layer of tissue that is under your skin and around your muscle. They can cause pain, and they can also be caused by overuse.

You can use cold therapy to reduce swelling, you can also use topical medicines or gels to relieve temporary pain.

These tips will not only help you avoid pain in your neck, but they will also improve your mood and your grades. When you study, keep in mind that your body has not been designed to continuously stare at the book or the computer screen for a long time. Simple movements, stretching exercises, being hydrated, and following other steps mentioned above will go a long way in maintaining the health of your neck muscles.

So there are certain medications, injections and non-surgical treatment options like electrical stimulation will require expert doctor’s intervention. With these modern developments in pain management can help you relieve chronic neck pain.

Arthroscopy is a procedure for diagnosing and treating joint problems. A surgeon inserts a narrow tube attached to a fiber-optic video camera through a small incision — about the size of a buttonhole. The view inside your joint is transmitted to a high-definition video monitor. Arthroscopy allows the surgeon to see inside your joint without making a large incision. Surgeons can even repair some types of joint damage during arthroscopy, with pencil-thin surgical instruments inserted through additional small incisions.
