Many people can reduce neck pain by taking practical steps. Alicia Hirscht, Orthopedic & Neursurgery specialists, says that she treats a number of neck issues.

Hirscht said that studies have shown that between 50 and 70 percent of people suffer from neck pain every day, regardless of age or gender.

Neck pain can be relieved by:

  • Every 20 minutes, get up and walk around the room or move in place.
  • Every 20 to 30 minutes, do a chin-tuck or shoulder-pinch.
  • Bring your phone and other devices closer to your eye level
  • Sleeping with your head and neck curled is not recommended

Hirscht recommends that people exercise to reduce stress and increase blood circulation.
