Are you prone to waking up with a crick in your neck? Don’t worry, you aren’t alone.
According to a musculoskeletal expert, Dr Charles Kim, there are a number of causes of this neck pain that so many of us seem to wake up with in the morning.
But the one thing we all have in common is that waking up with this pain can easily ruin the entire day and even affect our ability to do our jobs especially if we’re involved in manual tasks like tradies are.
Dr Kim says the 2 main causes are the 2 things we do most frequently work and sleep. Once the pain hits, stretching can help as well as gentle massage.
So how do we avoid it? Focusing on your posture is crucial and when engaged in manual tasks like lifting, pushing and pulling we need to pay extra attention to this.
