What is the best way to relieve the pain in your neck from holding a phone between your ear and shoulder?


The short answer: get a phone headset ASAP


YES this is serious.

If you are tired of your trip to the doctor or any other health professional to try to relieve the pain of the crick in your neck then stopping that uncomfortable posture is essential.


This can have a significantly positive impact to your health and help you avoid bad posture leading to days off work due to pain or injuries.


Certain headsets can reduce muscle tension by up to 41%. It will also help lessen any strain on your hands from holding the phone in the same position for a long period of time.


A wireless headset, in particular, allows you to move about more freely, which makes it easier for you to type on a computer keyboard, then turn and consult paperwork without the hassle of a cord.


It allows you to get up from your desk and walk over to check files without having to put the caller on hold.


Your productivity will increase if you are not in constant pain and unable to perform at the best of your ability.


A phone headset will be a small investment for your manager or your company in comparison to you missing work.



There is a few things to consider before bying a headset or headphones according to CHOICE (the leading consumer advocacy group in Australia) as they have tested a few to give you a more comprehensive review of some ideal headsets for a hassle-free online meeting.


It can be hard to find out which headset or headphone is the right fit for you as unfortunately, most retailers don't let you try headphones before you buy them for health and safety reasons.

It's also good to know that if you are self-employed or if your work won't reimburse you then you can write it off on tax. Though you won't get the full amount back you should be able to claim a portion as an essential purpose.
