I know it's an old thread, but I googled wether plasterers get nech ache Funny you should have asked this, I've only been plastering for the last 7 months and recently did every ceiling in a georgian property in East Sussex. A few days after finishing the job I've got raging neck ache that's causing a raging headache I thought it may be from having my neck titled all day everyday for 4 days has yours gone away now?

If your necks aching and giving you a headache its the muscle in ye neck..........or brain tumour. A good physio will sort it but need to keep at it every 2 to 3 weeks

For all of my adult life I only ever drank tea , coffee and alcohol , always in pain , just accepted it as overworked muscles and joints , got so bad I would grin and bear it for a job and then lay down and relax for a few days
Gradually got so bad was going to pack if in , in too much pain to get to the shop for coffee and had to drink water 3 glasses later my pains completely disappeared and now drink gallons to flush out the odd coffee , all those wasted years , I feel 20 years younger , instead of crawling sideways out of bed in agony I sit straight up and have no problem putting my socks on , fkking completely changed my life

On a serious point I suffered from neck pain for many years on and off. Mainly on. It always got worse at night after work and would give me banging headaches. It got much worse after a slight injury a few years back and I had to stop and have complete rest. It basically cleared up 99.9%. I think if you are experiencing neck pain you need to have complete rest to clear it because you would be surprised at how often you use your neck daily.

A good mate of mine whos been a spread all his working life woke up one day paralised.Long story short,neck bones were all displaced nputting huge pressure on spinal cord,had a major operation 50/50 chance hed be paralised,but came through ok.Doctor said hed have to pack it in,after 1 year he was back at it,and still is,that was 4 years ago and hes only 60.Our bodies all react to it differently,I get a few aches here and there,but Id bin it if I were that bad

I'm 51, been plastering ceilings 35 years, We do have a hard job, but unfortunately we think we are machines. I now have cervical spongalitis due to to much hard ceiling work,. you really don't want that, so personally I'd recommend you do no more than 20 years of ceilings,
