Computer Use Can Cause Neck Pain

Poor habits and bad posture can create issues that cause pain and discomfort. We provide Physical Therapy to treat computer-use neck pain.

A Few Exercises To Alleviate Neck Pain
These are a few simple exercises that can help lessen the pain you suffer from computer use:
1. Scapular Rolls
Roll your shoulders up and hold for 5 seconds
Roll your shoulders back and hold for 5 seconds
Roll your shoulders down and hold for 5 seconds
2. Scapular Squeeze

Posture Plays A Part In Causing Neck Pain
The above exercises can help relieve pain from sitting in front of a computer but you should also be aware of your posture. Good posture can serve as treatment and prevention of unnecessary aches and pains.
