I speak to clients all the time about neck and shoulder pain. I’ve posted many different tips on self massage and workplace tools to help keep you from getting sore and painful neck and shoulders. In the depths of the Chicago winter, I also tell people to keep their necks and heads covered and warm.

When we are too cold, we tend to hunch our shoulders up and this can create tension in the upper back and base of the neck.So wrap an extra scarf around your beck if you need to.
