The New Yorker's Guide to Solving Neck Pain At Work

It’s hard to dispute that New York City is the best city in the world. With an endless number of options for dining and drinking, combined with enough theater productions, art galleries, and historical architecture and landmarks to last several lifetimes, it makes sense why New Yorkers live such fastpaced lives; there is simply too much to do and not enough time to do it all!


Unfortunately, along with the fast-paced life comes an increased amount of stress. For those working in Manhattan offices, this stress often manifests itself in stiff and pain-ridden necks. Sitting at a desk for hours every day might be necessary for some, but it also puts increased strain on the upper body, leading to chronic stiffness and pain. Even worse, those most stressed and in need of relief from neck pain are often the very people who simply do not have time in their busy schedules to schedule massages.

6 Causes for Rampant Runners Knee In Active New Yorkers

If you’ve been running in New York for any time at all, you’ve probably run your share of stairs. The city is home to several sets of challenging stairs, including a set of 130 steps at 187th Street and Overlook Terrace, just south of Fort Tryon Park and not too far from Riverside Park, another great spot for trail running. In Brooklyn, you can make like Rocky (yes, we know he ran in Philly) and run up the steps at Fort Greene Park on the outskirts of Williamsburg. You can get an idea of what they’re like by watching this video.

Of course, in rainy weather, outdoor stairs get slick and slippery, which means it’s easy to fall and hurt yourself. No worries – New Yorkers are an innovative lot, and today many runners embrace the increasingly popular sport of tower running – essentially running stairs indoors. The Empire State Building has hosted several tower running events, but even modest buildings – maybe your workplace or apartment building – can offer plenty of challenges.
