Many gathered at the Sheik Khalifa auditorium on Friday 5th July to hear what the physio therapy team (MOH) had to share about neck pain self-management. Mrs. Ferley informed participants on the different causes of neck pains and how it can be prevented and addressed. Mrs Ferley highlighted the way handbags are carried as one of the causes and suggested that back packs are used instead. She also suggested that we become more mindful of how we carry our shopping bags and recommended that loads are shared equally as a mean of prevention.
Mrs Nadia Valentin followed to provide some head and neck exercises that are considered ideal to strengthen the neck muscles and also help alleviate some of the pain if ever present.
We hope you enjoyed this session and we look forward to seeing more of you in future sessions.
