How can I avoid neck pain when riding rollercoasters?
June 10, 2010 9:25 AM Subscribe
I get neck pain from tensing my neck up whenever I ride rollercoasters. It's either like my neck is in lock-down mode or my head is getting battered every which way. Is there a way to cope with this so I can continue to enjoy rollercoasters? Or now that I'm 25 and decrepit do I have to stand on the sidelines and hold everyone's sno-cones?

I'm not afraid of rollecoasters and they're fun, but a real pain in the neck! I have pretty constant "tense" neck pain all the time, exacerbated by stress. When it's super bad I take some ibuprofen, but I've never taken anything stronger. I'm open to both natural/physical fitness suggestions and pharmacological ideas. Thanks.
