All You Need to Know About Neck Pain

Any kind of pain can disturb your daily routine and needs timely attention. A neck pain can be sudden or can happen due to several underlying factors. What becomes important after a persistent neck pain is the right medication and if prescribed by the physician the right brace to support your neck.

Cervical Neck Support


Symptoms of Neck Pain

  • Numbness, tenderness, tingling, sharp shooting pain, fullness, difficulty swallowing, pulsations, dizziness, stiffness in the neck, and swelling.
  • Shoulder pain, facial pain, headache, and arm numbness can also be because of neck pain.
  • Depending on the condition, a back pain both upper and lower can also be associated with neck pain.

Causes of Neck Pain

  • No pain comes announced and there can be several reasons for pain in the neck.
  • Over a period of time a poor posture, working at desk without changing position, sleeping with your neck in a bad position or jerking the neck during an exercise can cause muscle tension and strain.
  • Holding the phone between your neck and shoulder for long and cradling it causes neck pain.
  • Neck is one of the most moveable bones of the human body and is also prone to sudden jerks and vulnerable to injury especially during a car accident, a fall, or a sports injury. When the neck experiences a dislocation or fracture and the cervical disks located in the upper torso are not able to absorb the shock the spinal cord may also get affected during the injury.
  • Neck injury that is caused when there is an accident and the neck receives a sudden jerk it is called “whiplash”.
  • Arthritis is a condition which causes pain and swelling of the joints and bone spurs. When the arthritis condition affects the neck area it causes pain in the neck.

How to Take Care of Neck Pain 
  • If you feel that the pain is only a minor stiffness you can start a home treatment with applying ice on the neck followed by heat either with a heating pad, hot compress, or hot showers.
  • Exercising mildly, getting a gentle neck massage, and taking an over the counter medicine like the ibuprofen can help you relief of your neck pain if it is mild in nature.
  • If symptoms persist for more than a week, you should see the doctor.
  • If there is numbness, headache, fever, pain that goes down to your arms or legs, trouble in swallowing or breathing; such symptoms should not be ignored and the doctor needs to be visited immediately.
  • An accident where the neck hurts needs immediate medical care.

Treatment of Neck Pain

Depending upon the nature of neck injury, your doctor will prescribe you the right treatment.
  • Neck collars or braces are usually advised by the doctors to provide relief to the neck other than the exercises and if the injury is of a serious nature than a spinal surgery too can be recommended.

How useful are the Neck Braces?
  • A neck brace immobilizes the neck and will keep the head relatively still while your injury is being healed.
  • A neck brace helps your neck to bear the weight of your head while the injured area and the soft tissues can be healed.
  • You can even wear a neck brace while driving as a precautionary measure to protect your neck from sudden jerks and injury.
  • After a neck surgery, a neck brace is required to support the neck to keep the neck bones in line.
  • A physician will guide you to use the right brace and in the right position to help you accelerate the process of healing the injury.

How to Choose the Correct Neck Brace
  • The neck brace should be snug to fit your neck correctly without keeping it too tight.
  • It should be very comfortable to wear and only the padded area should touch your skin as the neck brace holds your head comfortably.
  • GPC Medical Limited offers one of the best quality neck braces available in the market.
  • They are easy to wear and brings relief to the patient and cause no skin irritation.

A neck brace can give you maximum benefit if worn properly and can make the healing process quick.

Comfortable and Healthy Living Tips

Our body is constantly going through a metamorphosis of change. As we begin to cross the threshold of 40 years or the middle age, our physical health begins to show signs of deterioration. The inevitable cannot be ignored. The constant growing stress and unreasonable demands from our physical body accompanied by an unhealthy lifestyle and changed eating habits, take a toll on our physical well-being.

However, there are two sides of each coin. If there is a negative aspect towards today’s lifestyle, there is also a positive aroma in it. Life spans have increased with the advancement in medical science and increase in consciousness towards one’s health. Paradoxically, we are all aware of what is good for us and what can be harmful to our health, but we still tend to ignore it.

What Signals of My Body I Should Not Ignore
  • If you find any changes in the chemistry of your daily body routine; it’s time to introspect it.
  • If your body joints are becoming stiff and showing signs of uncomfortableness and pain you need to visit a doctor. Early detection of any forthcoming problem helps to resolve it quickly.

How to Choose the Right Rehabilitation Aid Product Available in the Market?

The market is flooded with many rehabilitation aid products, each claiming to be the best. However, as a consumer and a patient you have to be well informed to make the right choice for your body.

  • For Rehabilitation Aids Products we recommend GPC Medical Limited which fulfils almost all the criterion for products that have international standards, the best engineered products that have latest research bearings and uncompromising quality, and a price that suits your pocket best.
However, some problems are of a higher magnitude may require immediate surgery. In that case, with the advice of your doctor, go for the surgery and give yourself a comfortable living.

Is an orthopaedic surgery risky?

  • Orthopaedic surgeries in a lot of cases are done in emergencies, usually after an accident.
  • When a doctor recommends a surgery, it is usually, when that is the best solution for the patient, so go for it.
  • A successful surgery can free you of the pain and build a road towards a healthy living.
  • Choose your doctor wisely and make no compromises for a healthy lifestyle.
  • Be cautious about the orthopaedic products available in the market and make the right choice.
  • Good quality products being used within the body go a long way in making the surgery successful.
  • GPC Medical Limited as recommended by us gives the best quality orthopaedic products that are customized according to the need of the patient.
  • Choose wisely and bring back the smile on your face.
Your body is your temple; worship it each day, by giving it the right direction and timely intervention.
