Even ordinary office workers are not immune to such health problems that are traditionally attributed to repetitive motions, whiplash events, and even weightlifting injuries. Managing neck and back pain requires: immediate and effective pain relief, the strengthening of your back and neck muscles, and health education on proper positioning and movement.
