Is your Newborn causing Neck Pain at Base of Skull?

Do you happen to encounter neck pain at the base of your skull? Today’s video will be explaining such pain. People often think of their lower backs as being at risk from lifting, but your neck is almost as vulnerable. If you do a lot of lifting at work or even if you are just carrying your newborn at home, you need to know the proper lifting techniques to avoid neck pain.

When lifting, you should always keep the object close to your body to avoid straining both neck and back muscles. When lifting from the ground, bend down from your hips and knees. Try to get close to the object.

In order to avoid neck pain, you must keep your neck in a neutral position during the lift. Keep the object close to your center of gravity. In most people, this is deep in the abdomen, a few inches below the navel, but may vary depending on your body type.

Your neck is designed to support you in a natural position. It has a gentle curvature that should be maintained when you are lifting. Putting stress on your neck when it is out of position, such as being bent too far forward or sideways, can cause damage and neck pain. The spine will be incorrect curvature when your ears are in line with your shoulders, and your shoulders are in line with your hips.

If you will be carrying a newborn, you can prevent a sore neck by warming up before work, just like an athlete warms up before their sport. You can also cause neck pain by lifting objects the wrong way during everyday activities. Two common causes of neck pain are “shopper’s tilt” and “traveler’s droop.”

Shopper’s tilt is caused by carrying items against one side of your body for a long period of time. You can avoid neck pain from shopping by following the same rules as recommended for lifting. Keep the weight evenly distributed — between two shopping bags — and close to your body.

One of the best ways to prevent neck pain and a sore neck is to think before you lift. You can get neck pain from working with heavy objects, carrying newborns and slouching in front of your desk at work. Remember to maintain your curves, lift with your legs and hips, and keep the weight close to your center of gravity to prevent neck pain from lifting.
