My neck has started bothering me again. It especially hurts when I lay down to sleep and when I am doing work on the computer. If there is one thing I learned from a previous shoulder injury however, is that inactivity is detrimental and does not help the healing process. So I did a little research and found out that I could still swim, I just have to use a snorkel gear to breathe so that I don’t have to continuously turn my neck. I modified my workout a lot today, shortening it to only 25 minutes and pretty much just doing kicks and shoulder rolls, but I’m glad I did something positive for my health. I am doing trigger point therapy massage, neck stretches, and icing (no heat as this makes it worse for my neck) so I’m confident it will resolve itself in a few days.
Life happens, but when we make our well-being a priority, we adapt and find creative ways to fulfill our commitment.
