Neck pain exercises

Dealing with Neck Pain

The first thing is to try and ease it through movement – see the video for some neck exercises. 

Movement may be sore and may require some painkillers such as ibuprofen and/or paracetamol (read the box or ask your pharmacist for details on how to take them).

If you find that your neck pain is worse after being at work, you may require an assessment of your workstation. Your employer should be able to organise this.

If your neck pain doesn’t settle you may need some help from your local physiotherapist.
