    Post How to Reduce Arthritis Neck Pain

    1

    Neck exercises
    To reduce arthritis neck pain the first thing you can do is stop doing nothing and do something. However, you can't just do whatever you want either. There are specific exercises or physical therapies that help get range of motion back and relieve stiffness and pain.

    Make an appointment with a physical therapist and learn how to do the exercises properly then do them at home as the therapist specifies.

    Hydrotherapy
    Use hydrotherapy, which is a combination of water, heat and air. It's amazing what a good hot tub will do to relieve arthritis neck pain. The water reduces body weight to almost nothing taking off pressure and the action of the air and water work together to massage it.

    Ask your doctor about hydrotherapy and what water temperature is best for your particular needs. Many arthritis sufferers use it to exercise in as well, since the body and muscles are warmed up and ready to go.

    Posture exercises
    Do posture exercises along with physical therapy exercises. A set of exercise bands and an exercise ball is all you need. Poor posture can aggravate arthritis neck pain. Youtube has videos of posture exercises that you can watch and learn from or even follow along if you like.

    Get rid of stress of any kind. Stress creates tension and causes pain of all sorts including arthritis. Relaxation is a key factor. What's relaxing to one person may not relax another. So, you will need to decide what works best for you.

    Massage
    Massage therapy will also relieve arthritis neck pain by increasing circulation, flexibility and mobility. It also meets the criteria for relaxation and relieves stiffness. Chiropractors use it frequently on arthritis patients.

    Try alternative health care. Homeopathy and acupuncture are a couple of alternative methods used for arthritis pain. Many people are relieved of pain and sometimes cured depending on the type of arthritis and how advanced it is.

    5

    Arthritis meds
    Finally, many times pain killers are used to manage arthritis neck pain. However, they should be last resort or not used more than needed since they have side effects. It's possible to end up worse than ever if these drugs are abused

    I have been suffering from whiplash since an accident I had last year. Unlike a lot of false claims, mine is genuine and am hoping to get a significant payout in the next month or so! Aside from that, I have been undergoing allsorts of physiotherapy but am more inclined to try hydrotherapy. Do you happen to know if this will help for something such as whiplash?
