Getting rid of that pain in your neck without breaking your back (and the bank)

Updated 5 Aug 2023

We're going to start this article with a simple activity. Are you ready? Let's go: First, tilt your head to your left such that your left ear moves towards your left shoulder. Repeat this but this time, do it on the right side. Next, stretch both your arms up to reach the sky!

I'm going to make two wild guesses. First—that you're wondering what in the world is happening, and second, that as you were doing this simple exercise, you cracked way more times than a firecracker on New Years' Day.

Let's face it, most of us experience more pains and aches than we did five to ten years ago. I don't know about you, but I kind of miss being forced to exercise during PE classes in primary and secondary school.

As the pandemic rages on, many of us are working from home—a situation that only adds to our sedentary lifestyles. With back-to-back Zoom meetings, we're often relegated to our seats with our eyes glued to the computer screen.

If a year and a half of working from home have gifted you the unfortunate pains of neck and back pains, Fuzzie can help you mitigate this. Check out these Fuzzie merchants—they'll help you get rid of that pain in your neck, literally.

(Note: Due to the Ministry of Health's policies, we're unable to disclose in advance the actual savings that you can get with Fuzzie's privileges for medical providers until after your visit. Rest assured, though, you're definitely getting a great dealjust check out the public rates with the specific clinics to find out just how much you'd be saving.)

Neuro Specialist: Singapore Brain-Spine-Nerves Center

This Specialist Center is dedicated to the diagnosis and comprehensive modern treatment of Spine, Brain, and Nerve Disorders. This includes treatment for spine pain relief, spine injury, slipped discs in the spine, spine tumors, brain tumors, brain injury, stroke, and epilepsy.

The man behind Singapore Brain-Spine-Nerves Center? Well, that man is none other than Dr. Prem Pilay. He specializes in all aspects of neurosurgery, spine surgery, and endovascular neurosurgery. Fuzzie's founder, who has personally been treated by Dr. Pilay, gave his greatest approval for this specialist center with his two thumbs (and toes) up.

Traditional Chinese Medicine: Oriental Remedies Group

Correct me if I'm wrong. There seem to be two camps of people here in Singapore. One, those who swear by the methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). And two, those who've never stepped into a TCM clinic ever. Well, I used to be in the second camp, until I sprained my neck a few years ago. I couldn't move my neck for days, but one visit to a TCM and I could once again look to my left and right without turning my whole body.

If you would like to give TCM a shot, Oriental Remedies Group is easy to recommend. Just see their raving reviews on Google. The team is made up of bilingual physicians, who on average, have each acquired more than 10 years of TCM experience and are all trained in both Biomedical Science and TCM. They are well-equipped with scientific knowledge as well as wisdom from traditional medicine—you get the best of both worlds.

This leading patient-centred healthcare provider offers effective traditional treatments for pains and injuries such as acupuncture and cupping, and also enhanced technology such as electro-lymphatic drainage therapy (ELT) to help their patients feel better faster.

Fuzzie Privilege: Members enjoy complimentary consultation (worth $50 to $180). Plus additional discounts for a whole range of services and packages for you to try. You can bring a friend or family member to enjoy the complimentary consultation too.

Making Changes: Dell

If you've been seeking treatment for your aches and pains, but nothing seems to be working, it is time for you to make changes to your environment. Most of us work off our laptops. But let's face it—it's not the best in terms of ergonomics. Many times, we attempt to start our day fresh. We sit up straight, face our computer, and feel confident to tackle whatever task comes our way.

As time passes, however, we begin to hunch over in terrible postures. Poor posture can lead to back pain, poor balance, headaches, and even breathing difficulties. Did you know that having a separate keyboard and mouse can help you to get a better posture?

So, it might be time for you to switch out that laptop to a desktop with a separate keyboard and mouse. With a wide range of desktop options and accessories to choose from, Dell is your best bet.

Built on advanced ergonomic principles, with a split keyboard layout that keeps wrists and forearms in a relaxed position, and a cushioned palm rest to provide wrist support, Dell takes your health seriously. It also helps that many of these desktops look amazing. Definitely a great addition to your workstation at home.
