Your physiotherapist can advise you on the best type of pillow for your neck. Also, avoid sleeping on your front where possible.
Avoid working with your head down or to one side for too long. Frequently stretch and change position.
It is important to have a good posture when using a computer. This will minimise the amount of strain on your neck. Think tall: chest lifted, shoulders relaxed, chin tucked in and head level. Speak to your physiotherapist about proper workstation setup.
Many people ‘carry’ their stress in their neck and shoulders, leading to hunched shoulders and clenching of the jaw.
