Shoulder and Neck Pain Prevention

shoulder pain
Your neck and shoulders contain muscles, bones, nerves, arteries, and veins, as well as many ligaments and other supporting structures. Many conditions can cause pain in the neck and shoulder area. Some are life-threatening (such as heart attack and major trauma), and others are not so dangerous (such as simple strains or contusions).

* To prevent injuries, examine your home for potential hazards and correct them to reduce the chance of accidental injury.

* Proper exercise of the shoulders and neck can reduce the risk of injury.

* When performing hazardous tasks, have someone present to reduce the likelihood of injury. For example, when climbing a ladder, have someone hold the base of the ladder to keep it from sliding to either side.

* Know your limitations. Do not perform activities that you do not have the training, skills, tools, or strength to accomplish.

* Wear seat belts and use other safety equipment to reduce injuries..
