Forget about being nervous during the medical examination


Medical exams make a conventional routine for most of the people once or twice a year. We tend to get nervous and ticklish during the examination despite our age. Attending a hospital is, of course, different from attending a New York barbershop, as an example. It is a natural response to get nervous in anticipation of a medical exam; however, it does make it complicated for doctors to determine the proper diagnosis. There are some useful tips on how to reduce your ticklishness.

1. The mental factor
As it was mentioned before, we get nervous when anticipating the examination. We trigger our brain to think of a touch to be ticklish in advance. Techniques like deep breathing and meditation may help if you know how to use them, while the positive thinking method is complete nonsense. You need to know how to deal with unsettling thoughts. Except for thinking like ‘I don’t want to be touched’, think of ‘I have a thought that I don’t want to be touched’. It turns out that your thoughts are just words, really. You may also try singing them in your head, no matter how stupid it seems to be. Thoughts are not always verities, remember that.

2. The third person topic
Some people stay more confident when doing the exams private with your doctor, while other people feel better when a third person is present. It depends on certain facts such as the gender of your physician. If your doctor is the opposite gender, you may invite a nurse or an assistant of the same gender as yours to reduce the possible sexual tension. This method may help in case you had any sexual abuse experience and get too nervous. Otherwise, there is nothing bad being exposed to your physician, as long as such procedures are held to help you maintain your health.

3. Body warmth
You know that feeling of getting a bit tremulous when your body gets too cold. The muscle contractions caused by the chill may get worse when you are nervous; therefore, consider the clothes you wear to be both comfortable to take off for the examination and warm enough to keep you cozy. Ask your doctor what clothes can you leave when getting disrobed to keep yourself warm.


Use these simple tips and never be afraid to ask the doctor’s intentions right before they are held. Make the medical exams efficient both for you and your physician.

Neck pain is an issue with an obvious solution


Neck pain is disturbing and bothers us while working and doing conventional duties. However, you don’t have a need to visit a neurology center in case of non-chronic pain. Establishing some healthy habits will help you preventing neck pain and, moreover, treating it.

1. Work on your posture
You will think about how much we sit and how it affects our spinal cords and neck, but your posture is important while standing and walking. Align your hips with your shoulders and adjust your ears directly over your shoulders. Move your limbs parallel to the floor while sitting. Don’t angle your arms and wrists. Proper posture will help you reduce the neck pain over time, but the solution is not immediate.

2. Free your neck
Don’t strain your neck by holding items with it. Don’t hold things under your thin. We all have only two hands, but they are enough to cope with all the holding tasks, let your neck be free. Besides putting your neck on your shoulders while holding your phone, burdening your shoulders with heavy things may also cause neck pain.


3. Improve your habits
Adjust your regular reading and texting posture. Raise your phone or book to the eye level. The strain is caused by bending your neck down while using reading materials; therefore, it is important to raise up your computer or adjust your chair to provide the eye level working on the computer during prolonged working sessions.

4. Exercise
Holding your neck in a strict position is also redundant. Exercise your neck to stretch it and normalize the blood flow. Try neck turns and head tilts as the basic options to warm up your neck. Roll your neck and circle your shoulder to complete the exercise sequence.

Use these simple tips to prevent neck pain and feel loose.
