Ways to Protect Your Cervical Spine

The cervical spine is an incredibly strong and flexible part of the body. Since we use it for virtually everything, experiencing neck pain can have a tremendous impact on your impact on your quality of life. Adopting certain behaviours may help prevent neck injury and slow the development of degenerative disorders. 📍Always wear a seatbelt. Wearing a seatbelt while in a vehicle helps protect against spinal cord injuries in the event of an accident. 📍Protect your head and upper neck by wearing a helmet when biking. 📍Adjust your computer monitor or screen to eye level. 📍Don’t tuck your phone between your ear and shoulder. When you’re on the phone, try to avoid cradling your phone between your ear and your shoulder which requires you to tilt your neck in an uncomfortable way. 📍Sleep using a pillow that supports your cervical spine and keep it in neutral alignment. 📍Periodic neck stretching movements and exercises can help release tension and avoid a stiff neck.
