Can I join a gym if I have cervical pain?
Hello, I am an 18 years old female. I have been having cervical pain for the past few weeks and skipping gym. I visited a doctor to treat the same. I used to have chronic pain in my neck. I feel better now but still have slight pain. What should I do? Can I join a gym if I have cervical pain?
@vibha-narayan Hello, Yes you can. Exercise is one of the best treatments for the relief of neck pain. Any kind of strengthening exercise is usually very good for neck pain. It is a good idea to start with light exercise/weight to see how your neck responds to it. Let pain be your guide as you increase intensity and weight. Be careful with overhead exercises as these can flare up neck pain in some cases. It is always a better a better idea to ask your doctor after recovering from such a condition.
