Simple Remedies To Relive Shoulder And Neck Pain
If you do any type of exercise or play any type of sport you have probably encountered nagging shoulder and neck pain. You don’t even need to exercise to cause pain. Stress, sitting at work all day, working (or playing) on your computer can all cause neck and shoulder pain.

Other Ways To Relieve Shoulder And Neck Pain
Exercise your neck on a daily basis. If you do not have the time to follow the above videos, while sitting at your desk, nod you head up and down then side to side for 5 minutes a few times a day.
Use an ice pack on any inflamed areas. After a few days, try applying heat with a heating pad
Pay attention to your posture, especially when sitting at your desk humped over a computer. Sit up straight, roll your shoulders back
Drink lots of water, at least 8 cups a day. Dehydration is one of the leading causes for tight muscles, upset stomach and exhaustion.
Don’t Rule Out Going To A Doctor
If you try all the above remedies and you still are experiencing pain, go to your Doctor to make sure there is nothing seriously wrong.
