  • Stiff/Sore Neck Fix

    My neck has been stiff/sore all day today. I can only turn it about halfway to the left before it stops turning (presumably out of pain). We dont have any icy hot or hot packs, what else helps get rid of a stiff/sore neck?

    Also would it do any damage if I forced it further to the left? Im used to work out soreness where working the muscles when they're sore feels great, but Im not sure this is the same.

    What causes a stiff/sore neck?


    I know its not meningitis, no fever or puking or anything like that. Besides if it is Im screwed, the nearest ER worth a damn is in ANC. The joys of living on the ass end of the world.

    Could use some help too with same thing, mine's been hurting for three days now.

    I did start sitting (well, typing actually) slightly differently which causes me not to sit dead centre in front of my screen.

        Break your finger. That'll take your mind off the soreness in your neck.

          Don't force your neck anywhere it doesn't want to go. Either get a friend to massage your neck or massage it yourself. You probably just have a strained muscle or something. Whenever that happens to me it gets better over the next couple of days.

            sometimes I get a stiff neck when I sleep on my stomach. It's not a good position to sleep in, but I do it often.

              Whats wrong with sleeping on your stomach? I usually end up on my stomach before morning, if I dont fall asleep that way already.

                Sleeping on your stomach forces your head to one side or the other. A prolonged period in such a position can cause undue strain, though not necessarily damage. It's rare that I end up on my stomach, and I definitely don't like it, but I still wake up with a stiff neck when I do.

                    Actually, no, because the head would still roll to one side or the other.

                        Don't try forcing your neck unless you're a qualified osteopath, chiropracter or physical therapist. Try taking Ibuprofen to relieve the pain. Lie down in a tub of moderately hot water. Go pay someone to prescribe some really useful drugs.

                          I already took a bath earlier today, didnt do a thing. They need to make the standard tub a foot deeper, a foot wider, and two feet longer. Also water heaters should hold more water.

                              What worked for me last time I got a sore&stiff neck was taking a shower, somewhat hotter than usual, and keeping my neck under the nozzle for several minutes, it seemed to help considerably.
