DID YOU KNOW?
Neck pain and stiffness is common following thyroid surgery. The neck is composed of vertebrae and
ligaments that supply stability to the spine, and muscles that provide support and allow motion. The neck is very vulnerable because it is less protected than the rest of the spine, it supports the head, and it is very flexible. During your surgery the neck is extended (bent backwards) for the duration of the procedure which may be for several hours. This can cause muscle spasm which then leads to pain and tension in the neck. People with pre-existing neck problems such as cervical spondylosis or a previous
whiplash injury are more susceptible.
Exercising the neck muscles before and after your surgery significantly reduces the risk of muscle strain and subsequent neck strain. You should perform the following exercises FOR 10 COUNTS EACH,
TWICE DAILY, FOR 10 DAYS BEFORE AND 10 DAYS AFTER your surgery. Exercises should be
done until a gentle tension is felt. Do not bounce or the muscle will tighten up more. It is important to
return to the central position.
