Head Neck
What are ways you can make your head and neck hurt less when wearing a football helmet?

I was wearing my football helmet during practice today, and it seems like every day i go to practice, my head hurts or neck hurts because of the helmet. I usually take off my helmet for a little bit, which helps, but my coach always yells at me to put it back on. Is there anything i can do to make it so my head and neck hurt less?

Do exercises to build up your neck and shoulder muscles and before you put the helmet on make sure you have stretched properly including neck muscles. You are hurting because your head is not used to supporting the weight of a helmet on your head. A foot ball helmet can weigh as much as 6-8 pounds. if you are a younger or smaller player this could be as much as 3 to 5% of your body weight. This amount of weight will take some time for your body to adjust to.
Ask your coach, trainer, or doctor for some exercises to help you out.
