Neck Pain and How To Deal With It

Neck Pain and How To Deal With It

The most common cause of neck pain can be cervical disc disease. It is generally caused by the abnormality of the disc that is the cushion present between the vertebrae. The disc can get damaged because of arthritis or any unknown cause. When damaged, it usually leads to inflammation or spasm of the muscles leading to neck pain.

There are a number of pain medications, traction exercises, and physical therapy for minimizing the neck pain. However, these home based remedies help in relieving pain along with a speedy recovery:

  • Take it easy: If you have a busy and hectic life, then take it easy. Living with cervical disc diseases can lead to an increase in the neck pain; thus cutting down on activities helps. A comfortable position should be observed while resting. If need be then a pillow can be placed under the neck.
  • Apply Cold/Heat Pack: There is always a confusion regarding whether a cold or a hot pack is to be used. The recommendation is to use ice or cold pack for the first 24 to 48 hours of the injury, so that the swelling subsides. This should then be followed by hot fermentation in order to improve the muscle stiffness and also loosen them. But in case of a cervical disc disease neither cold nor heat penetrates the tissue to relieve inflammation, so it is best to use the one which feels better. Whichever, pack is chosen it should only be used for 20 minutes and then left for 40 minutes. Take care and do not use ice or heat directly against the skin. 
  • Stretch: Stretching exercises should be done in order to improve the flexibility and relieve pain in the neck. Exercises can be performed after warming up of the muscles by a warm towel or bath. Here are a few simple stretches for cervical disc disease that you can do at home:
  • Move the neck: As per the study by the American Medical Association, women who had neck pain got relief when they did exercises using light weight and resistance bands. This increased their endurance and strength of the neck muscles. Also, 30 minutes of exercise in the form of biking, walking, swimming, and biking is recommended to improve the blood flow.
  • Maintain the posture of the neck: A bad posture can cause a neck pain. Every time while standing, sitting, walking, lifting the posture should be kept in mind. The head and neck should be kept straight and the back should be supported in order to avoid neck pains.

I'm a type 2 diabetic women. I'm 2 months pregnant. Kya baby ko diabetes ho sakti hai?
Diabetes in the mother does not get transmitted directly to the baby. However, being the child of a diabetic parent, your child will have a higher chance of developing diabetes later in life. In pregnancy, however, one needs to control the sugars very strictly, otherwise the baby can have many problems including congenital anomalies, hypoglycemia, metabolic problems and growth problems etc.

Headache at such young age can be due to visual problems or some pathology in brain. Consult an ophthalmologist first and get her vision checked. If needed she will have to undergo MRI scan of brain. Consult again if needed for further queries.

Hi. You need to maintain good fiber intake and good amount of water too. Use ginger juice half a spoon with castor oil half a spoon and 2 spoons of hot water. This should ease the condition.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The word used for the disease that one gets due to increase in blood glucose (sugar) is Diabetes Mellitus. This happens mainly due to: Deficiency of hormone Insulin (produced by Beta cells in pancreas), or due to resistance to Insulin's action (Insulin Resistance, IR) because of excess body fat, plus inactivity (no physical exercise). Excess food intake, eating too much of sweets, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made of maida and deep fried foods. Lack of insulin increases blood glucose level beyond normal causing diabetes. There are many drugs available to control it. Some are taken orally (called as oral hypoglycemic agents), and Insulin injections (various types of Insulins are there). Apart from drugs it is important to control dietary intake and also exercise regularly so that the weight is maintained with in normal limits. This condition can only be controlled with medication, diet and exercise. There is NO CURE. Thanks. I don't understand what you mean by our body is sour. I hope this explanation answers your query. Thanks.

Cough since 2 months can be because of many reasons, most common include allergy of airways (asthma) or some infection in the lungs. You will require some investigations to see exactly what is the reason for cough.

Lybrate-user, it would have been better if you had mentioned current fasting, pp levels & hba1c%, drugs being taken with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise being done. Burning sensation does occur due to perioheral neuropathy, which is a common complication of diabetes. Strict blood glucose control and use of certain drugs can control the symptoms. Regular exercise and restricted diet is also equally important in controlling diabetes. Plus you have grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 32.14 kgs/m2, which is very high and also contribute to symptoms. Your ideal body weight should be 67.5 kgs. Thanks.
