Is your Newborn Causing Neck Pain and Stiffness?

Neck pain and stiffness is a problem for parents with a newborn. This video will help parents get through that pain. Most cases of neck pain have a postural component as part of the underlying problem. In such cases, recognizing and understanding poor posture can play an important role in finding neck pain relief.

When the ears are positioned directly above the shoulders, chest open and shoulders back, that is considered ‘good posture’. A neutral position, also called normal head posture, stress on the neck is minimized because the head’s weight is naturally balanced on the cervical spine.

Reasons for neck pain and stiffness

Forward head posture is often accompanied by forwarding shoulders and a rounded upper back, which can lead to more pain in the neck, upper back, and/or shoulders.

Neck pain, stiffness, and other symptoms develop when being hunched over a carrying your newborn on the couch or computer. Slouching over your laptop or tablet and carrying your newborn are all likely culprits in the neck pain line-up. We look down on our work (and play), whether it’s paper-based or electronic – it is rarely suspended in mid-air for us to look straight ahead at. Holding our cellphone or iPad up high whilst we tweet, or text would be as uncomfortable and damaging as cranking our neck down to the gadget on our lap – the strain on the shoulders would soon tell.

A job or hobby that keeps you active would free you from neck problems. The sad fact is that we often still slouch! Standing tall and proud is not so common these days. Check yourself right now. Are your shoulders back and your ears level with them (on a line from the floor to the sky)? If not, you are probably putting a strain on your neck and upper back. The better way to deal with the problem is to be aware of your body mechanics and practice good posture.
