Overview

In an increasingly sedentary society, where it is often unnecessary to get up from one's desk for long periods of time, neck pain has grown to epidemic proportions. This handbook explains the causes, simple steps that may be effective at home, when it’s time to see a doctor, and the range of available and effective treatments. Written by two physicians with extensive experience managing neck and joint pain, the book details how to set up a workplace to prevent injury, a simple, effective 10-minute program of stretches and strength training, the importance of good posture, medical and surgical options when necessary, and more. Perhaps most importantly, The Neck Pain Handbook discusses how the reader can prevent neck pain, so that once it's gone, it stays gone.
