    10 years ago, did some misguided experiments with backstroke and triggered some neck muscles. Since then, my neck will tighten up if I have been working at the computer too long, if I'm dehydrated, especially stressed, or especially tired. Remembering to relax my neck, adjusting my head and neck posture, or sleeping it off works best to reset.

      Physical Therapy,

    the work I did with Gokhake Method was the most impactful of all the things I have tried. Massage, yoga and stretching would relieve some pain (and exacerbate sometimes other). But Esther's class has really take the pain level down to a very mild place and I feel I am still unwinding years of next, shoulder, back and hip pain through the posture changes she has taught

    What most helped me is wearing almost all day long a small weight on my head to naturally correct posture (see gokhale method, gokhale head cushion) and getting my upper body much stronger (calisthenics). I also now totally avoid the sitting position, and only work standing on computer. I also tested a ton of different ergonomic pillows to find a good sleeping position. Eventually I sleep with almost no pillow (a very thin one).
