Say Goodbye to your Neck Pain

Neck pain can be incredibly debilitating, preventing people from doing the simplest of everyday activities. Whether you spend all day hunched over a keyboard or your job requires you to carry out heavy lifting, the pain and tension in your neck can become incessant if not addressed. Neck pain is a common complaint that can drastically affect one's daily life. It can make it difficult to turn your head, causing problems with driving, work tasks, and other daily activities.

Neck and shoulder pain can easily be caused by stress, tension, and postural issues, making it an ever-persistent source of discomfort. (Kazeminasab et al., 2022)

Luckily, there is now a wide range of products available on the market designed to effectively relieve neck pain. Neck massagers for massage therapy offer therapeutic vibration to help relax tight muscles and stimulate circulation in the neck area; shoulder massagers are also available which can provide deep kneading action to release further tension from the shoulders.

Product Questions

 

Can Neck massager help migraine?

Neck pain from tension and spasms can contribute to migraine headaches. A study found that after a neck massage treatment, patients felt 68.77% less pain after the treatment. So yes, neck massagers can help ease migraine without any side effects. (Jahangiri Noudeh, MD et al., 2012)

Jahangiri Noudeh, MD, Y., Vatankhah, MD, N., & Baradaran, MD, PhD, H. R. (2012). Reduction of current migraine headache pain following neck massage and spinal manipulation. International Journal of Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork: Research, Education, & Practice, 5(1). https://doi.org/10.3822/ijtmb.v5i1.115

 

Is neck massager good for a stiff neck?

Stiff necks can be incredibly uncomfortable and difficult to get rid of. Neck massagers target the areas of tension and loosen up the muscles thus providing relief to people with chronic neck pain, as well as those dealing with a stiff neck due to stress or poor posture.

 

Does neck massager release neck and shoulder tension?

Yes, heated neck massagers, even portable neck massagers, can be effective solutions for relieving neck and shoulder tension.

These compact devices use deep kneading, infrared heat, and vibratory massage to target soreness and provide instant relief. They also help to increase blood circulation around the affected area, leading to more oxygen-rich blood reaching your tissues which facilitate the healing of any underlying injury

 

What does a neck massager pillow do?

The neck massager pillow has acupressure points that help with blood flow and muscles. It works by stretching out the neck muscles and joints, which relieves the pressure on the cervical spine. It’s small and light so you can use it at home or on the go. 

The neck massager is quick and easy to use; simply lie down on your back and align the massager with the acupressure points along your neck. Only 10-20 minutes of treatment is required to ease your aches and pains.

 

Can a Neck massager cause a stroke?

A neck massager may put some individuals at risk of ischemic stroke if the user has an underlying condition such as carotid stenosis. This means that the user has narrowed carotid arteries which reduces the amount of oxygenated blood that flows from the heart to the brain. (Lopez-Navarro et al., 2021)

It is imperative that clinicians and patients alike remain cognizant of this potential danger before engaging in neck massages or treatments involving similar techniques.

Is neck massager safe to use?

Neck Massagers are devices designed to apply targeted pressure and vibration to the affected area, providing relief from tension and muscle spasms. Although these massagers can be incredibly beneficial when used correctly, it is important that users follow all manufacturer instructions in order to ensure the safe use of the device. Here are some health conditions that users need to be aware of when using neck massagers:

  • Fever - It is important to recognize that increased circulation may worsen the symptoms of infection-related fevers. When feeling under the weather due to colds and flu, abstain from massage until your fever has subsided.
  • Kidney Conditions or Liver Conditions - Increased blood flow resulting from a massage could potentially put extra strain on these vital organs as they work to quickly process waste through your body.
 

Which part of the neck should not be massaged?

When massaging the neck area, it is important to be mindful of certain areas that should not be directly targeted–the thyroid gland, located in the lower anterior part of the neck should be left untouched during a massage session as it may cause inflammation on your thyroid. (Muscolino, 2018)

Additionally, care should be taken when working around the hyoid bone which sits more superiorly in the anterior neck. This area is home to many muscles and while they can and should be worked on, pressure applied over this area of the neck needs to remain light.

Muscolino, J. (2018, August 6). Manual therapy precautions when working the neck. Learn Muscles. Retrieved February 5, 2023

 

How often should you use a neck massager?

According to research, two or three one-hour sessions per week will have the most lasting benefits. In addition, 60 minutes of massage works better than 30 minutes, and multiple treatments are recommended within the first four weeks. A neck massager can work wonders for reducing pain and stress levels so it pays to find out what routine best suits you.

 

What is a cervical massager?

A cervical massager is a device specifically designed for the purpose of neck relaxation and pain relief. It helps to provide therapeutic relief on a tense and knotted neck, stimulating nerve endings with gentle pulses, which help to reduce inflammation and muscle fatigue.

Cervical massagers typically feature an adjustable head support fit, with precise vibrations that can be customized to target different muscle groups.
