Winter is the time of year when people are most likely to develop back or neck pain. The cold winter months can be tough on your body, especially if you’re not prepared. Whether you live in a colder climate or just spend more time indoors during this season, it’s important to know how to prevent and treat back and neck pain in winter. By keeping active in winter with simple exercises like stretching and yoga, you’ll help relieve stress on your muscles while also improving circulation throughout the entire body. This will reduce your risk for developing painful conditions like herniated discs or bulging discs that can cause muscle spasms and serious spinal problems over time if left untreated.
