Neck and Shoulder CareA healthy neck supports your head, keeping it aligned with the rest of the spine in a proper, balanced posture, while a beautiful shoulder just emphasizes your figure making you look beautiful and gorgeous. Though people never bother to take care of their neck, but it does need a lot of care and attention. Women pay too much attention to their face that they almost forget all about their neck and how much it contributes for a beautiful posture. A healthy neck supports your head, keeping it aligned with the rest of the spine in a proper, balanced posture.

The neck has a slight natural curve, which sits on top of the two curves in the middle and lower back. Correct posture maintains all three curves and prevents undue stress and strain by distributing body weight evenly. Good posture means correct use of the body at all times. To prevent problems, one must avoid straining themselves, while lying, sitting, standing, walking, working, and exercising. By learning to live with good posture, under all circumstances, you will gradually develop proper carriage and stronger muscles which are needed to protect and support your neck as well as your back.

Common neck Problems

Neck is that part of the body, which is prone to some problems or the other. Some of these problems are as follows:

  • Excess Hair

  • Excess hair grows on the neck accompanied by the hair on the chin because of hormonal imbalances. Side effects of certain medication can also cause this problem. There are many hair removal techniques, which however should only be handled by professionals.

  • Lines on the Neck

  • The skin on the neck is very thin and delicate and if you don`t take proper care then you are likely to develop lines on your neck. Without proper exercise you may land up with loss of muscle tone around the neck and develop premature aged skin resulting in ugly lines around the neck. If the area is not cleaned properly the dead cell also accumulate adding to the problem. Sometimes the skin also becomes saggy and develops lines after a long period of illness.

  • Pigmentation of the skin around the Neck

  • The main cause of pigmentation is neglect of the body, exposure to sun and bad posture. This problem gets aggravated in the neck area if there is a bad posture thereby causing the pigments to accumulate near the neck and causing pigmentation. Thus if the neck is held straight the problem of uneven distribution of pigment will be less.

    Neck CareGeneral Neck Care

    In order to avoid the above neck problems, you need to take care of the neck. And given below is the care in general that can be taken to avoid the same.

  • Always keep your neck straight and keep your posture right.

  • Clean the skin regularly and do exfoliation with the general scrub. This will remove the dead cells.

  • Massage the neck regularly, but don`t apply very high finger pressure.

  • Regular scrubbing of the neck with a natural scrubber activates the lymphatic glands and removes dead cells.

  • Sleep on a low pillow. This will keep the neck alignment proper.

  • While at work do not lean over your work, hobbies, projects, etc. Angle work so that you can look straight ahead, or sit closer to your work area.

  • It is best to sleep on a firm mattress rather than on a soft bed.

  • When lifting objects bring the object close to you using your legs in lifting, not your back so that you don`t put extra pressure on your neck.

  • While sleeping the neck should be neither bent nor extended, it should be gently supported.

  • Do neck exercises through out the day.

  • Remember, while sitting or standing avoid slouching yourselves. Keep entire back pressed to the back of the chair. Do not hold head and chin up and your neck drawn back. Hold chin tucked in.

  • While lifting or reaching for anything always bend your knees using the leg muscles to lift. Keep load close to your body when lifting. Avoid reaching needlessly. Use a step stool to avoid stretches and strains.

  • Again, while driving, do not slouch. Sit high in the seat, which should be positioned comfortably from pedals and steering wheel. A support pad may help relieve pressure on the lower back.

  • Begin a regular program once the pain has subsided. Begin slowly and allow your muscles and body to warm up. Consult your doctor on appropriate activity best suited for your condition. Exercising is an important adjunct to your treatment. However, be sure to follow your doctor`s instructions carefully.

  • Do not overdo exercise, particularly when beginning. Start by trying movements slowly and carefully. If the exercise causes some mild discomfort, which lasts a few minutes, do not be alarmed. This will disappear, as your muscles become stronger. But, if pain is more than mild and continues for more than 15 to 20 minutes, discontinue exercising and speak to your doctor.
