how to get a crick out of your neck

Postby DaddyAdam » Mon Jul 04, 2016 5:44 pm

A crick in your neck can vary in severity from mild stiffness to severe, sharp pain. Home treatment usually works well for mild, one-time cricks, but severe cricks in the neck or chronic neck pain may need to be treated professionally. I know only things you shoudn not do...Seek medical help immediately if the crick in your neck prevents you from touching your chin to your chest. Stiffness this severe can be a sign of meningitis.Contact your doctor if your symptoms do not respond to home treatment within one week, if the crick was caused by an injury, if the pain prevents you from sleeping or swallowing, or if it is accompanied by numbness or weakness in your arms. But how to treat crick?

Use an over-the-counter pain reliever. Possible options include aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen.Anti-inflammatory medications like these reduce the swelling and ultimately relieve the pain.Before taking an over-the-counter medication, make sure that you are not on any prescription medications that could interact negatively with the drug. Moreover, you should also make sure that you do not have any medical conditions that prevent you from taking one or all of these drugs. For instance, someone with an ulcer should avoid taking aspirin.Note that over-the-counter medications only provide temporary relief. Do not let the immediate lack of pain lull you into a false sense of security, since you can still worsen the strain by overworking it.

Apply cold and warm packs. Both cold and warmth can help with a crick in the neck, but for best results, you should consider alternating them.Begin by applying an ice pack for 7 to 20 minutes. The cold reduces inflammation, and it must be applied first. A bag of frozen vegetables or ice wrapped in a towel will work, too, but you should never apply ice directly to the skin.Take a warm shower, use a hot water bottle, or use a heating pad, set to low, on the back of your neck. Apply heat in 10- to 15-minute segments or less. Heat soothes sore muscles, but it can make inflammation worse if applied too often.

Give your neck a break from both. You can alternate between cold and warmth throughout the day as necessary, but you should give the muscles in your neck 30 minutes or more in between treatments so that your neck has a chance to stabilize itself.Rest your neck. Lie down on your back several times throughout the day so that your neck has a break from the strain of holding your head up.Do not lie on your stomach, since you will need to twist your neck when you do so. Your neck should be straight as you lie down.If the crick is not severe enough to warrant lying down, you should still reduce your activity for a few days. Do not do any heavy lifting or twisting for the first 2 or 3 weeks at minimum. Avoid jogging, football, golf, ballet, weightlifting, or other strenuous exercise.

Meh...Do not rest too much, however. If you do nothing but lie around all day, the muscles in your neck will become weak. As a result, when you are forced to resume your usual activities, you are more likely to hurt your neck again. Alternate periods of rest with periods of non-strenuous activity during the day.Keep your neck supported. Wear a scarf or turtle-neck sweater to provide gentle support throughout the day. Alternatively, you could also position a neck pillow behind your head as you work.Usually, stiff support is not necessary. If you are unaccustomed to it, stiff support may actually aggravate the problem or cause you to experience pain in other areas of your body, like your back. Soft support is often sufficient.

:D :D First of all you need keep your neck supported. Wear a scarf or turtle-neck sweater to provide gentle support throughout the day. Alternatively, you could also position a neck pillow behind your head as you work. Usually, stiff support is not necessary. If you are unaccustomed to it, stiff support may actually aggravate the problem or cause you to experience pain in other areas of your body, like your back. Soft support is often sufficient. Your neck should be fairly straight as you sit and lie down, but do not hold your neck stiffly in an effort to maintain the position. ;) This treatment is more long-term than short-term, since good posture is essential to preventing neck cricks from coming back.

Gently stretch your neck. Slowly move your neck from side to side, holding it in place for 30 seconds with each rotation.
Focus on stretching your neck to the side and to the front, but avoid bending it too far back, since this often aggravates a crick in the neck.Only stretch as far as the pain will allow. Do not try to "push" your way past the pain and do not perform these exercises too quickly.Carefully massage your neck. Use your fingers to gently rub the back of your neck, near the crick, for up to 3 minutes.
Do not apply firm pressure and stop immediately if mild pressure makes your neck hurt more.If you are unable to bend your arms back due to the pain, ask a friend or family member to gently rub the area for you.

Ugh...That is my constant problem. And it is not only about my neck...my back hurts alot sometimes too! SO ANNOYING! :oops: :oops: :evil: :cry: So what do i do? Massage! Go to physical therapy. Physician-prescribed neck exercises and traction can provide immediate relief while strengthening the muscles, helping to prevent future cricks in the neck. A physical therapist can lead you in performing specific neck exercises and stretches that can aid in your long-term recovery. The therapist will likely ask that you perform the treatments at his or her office initially, but most of these can eventually be done at home. It really helps :!: I promise you!

It's a rare problem with me, although when i face this, i usually mobilize my neck in all directions. If the neck is stiff and has poor range of motion, then maybe the problem is more joint related. In this case, trying to crack the neck joints is certainly warranted, but typically the stiffest joints don't release with self manipulation. Instead, the joints above and below the stiffest joint keep cracking, which may make them a little too loose and unstable over time. SO if you do have this problem and it is more serious with you, then you should start with moving your head in circles, first clockwise and then counterclockwise, for about 5-10 minutes each way. You may hear some clicks, cracks and pops in your neck, but focus on the movement and not the sounds.

Hi everybody ) Nice to meet you all here) As for me this is very important topic to follow. :) :) Place your hands behind your head so your fingers meet in the middle of your neck. Press into the neck with a moderate pressure and hold. :lol: After 30 seconds slowly lower your head as far as you can, then remove the pressure from the muscles but continue holding your head down for another 30 seconds. For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed :) :) :) . So optimum importance should be given to body weight. One should opt for balanced diet, regular work out and exercises.
