With we all bent over our computer screens for hours at a time, neck pain is a common problem these days. There is also the occasional tingling in the neck.
A stiff neck occurs when muscles weaken over time due to poor posture, abuse, or injury. In some cases, the intensity of the pain often makes it almost impossible to move your head even slightly.
Sudden neck movements, injuries, whiplash, paralysis and vertebral fractures can also lead to neck problems. Here are some home remedies that may provide relief:
Apply heat and ice: You can alternate between applying ice packs and heat compression to the neck. This is a simple method that can be followed until the pain subsides.
Stretch your neck a little: If you wake up with severe neck pain, you need to stretch. Moving your head slowly helps increase blood flow to a specific area and also reduces inflammation. You can try moving your head from side to side or up, and now slowly.
Massage neck: Gently massage your neck with oil for instant relief. You can mix drops of peppermint or lavender oil with coconut oil. Gently massage your neck with this preparation.
Turmeric: Turmeric, also known as haldi, has anti-inflammatory compounds. You can either drink turmeric milk or make a paste and apply it to the inflamed area on your throat.
Ginger: Ginger is known for its numerous medicinal properties. You can use ginger directly or add it to your diet. You can also apply ginger oil on your neck.
