Hot Water Bottles for Neck Aches
Suffering from neck ache or stiff neck? If so, try holding a hot water bottle or microwave body warmer to your neck or alternatively wrap a microwave neck warmer around. This will help reduce pain and muscle spasms. Leave for around 15-20 minutes, re-heating if and when necessary.
This method works because the heat will help stimulate and improve blood flow circulation, increasing your ability to move comfortably, and in turn reducing the sensation of stiffness or soreness. A similar solution is possible to relieve other aches and pains.
