Stiff neck


Hi ladies

For the last few days I've had a stiff neck. I thought I'd just slept funny but it doesn't normally last this long. I've googled it today & apparently it can be do with the pregnancy - cos everything is moving inside to accomodate the baby which can put a strain on yr spine & neck.

Has anyone else experienced this? How long does it last? Is there anything I can do to relieve it?

Thanks

A good neck massage! haha. I get a stiff neck all the time, I figured it must be related to my pregnancy because my neck doesn't usually get this stiff unless I've overly strained it. Really though, a good neck massage will help a lot. I try and get my partner to rub my neck everyday (with some perseverance) and that helps loosen up the tight muscles.

You could also try the tennis ball technique where you rub one or two tennis balls on the back of your neck. There is also this little spiky orange ball that's a lot better than the tennis ball for loosening stiff muscles. They normally sell them at fitness stores, or yoga and health food chains.

^ Oh you're so lucky. I wish I could go to a professional to have my neck rubbed, I would literally fall a sleep.

I have a constant stiff neck now it seems which brings on tension headaches. I guess we are more prone to them when we are pg. I'm getting a massage tonight! I also noticed hot showers and massaging oil on the neck and scalp feels great. Yoga is also great at keeping everything loose. Hope you feel better soon
