A stiff neck is not something you want to have. Whether you got it from a small fender bender or sleeping the wrong way, there is only one effective way to get rid of it.
There are lots of reasons that you might have a stiff neck. You might have slept on it wrong, causing discomfort and stiffness in your neck muscles, or you might have gotten a little whiplash in a fender bender. A stiff neck has become rather popular these days because we are glued to a screen. We typically hold our phone near our lap causing us to bend your neck almost 70-90 degrees. This puts additional stress on your neck and spinal cord and causes tons of pain.
There are lots of different ways to naturally solve neck, back, or any aches and pains in general. Acupuncture and acupressure are two extremely effective methods that have been practiced for thousands of years. You can see that ancient Chinese cultures used these in dealing with a variety of health issues, and it really worked too! In the video below, it will show you how to stretch your neck and target pressure points to relieve tension and pain. One of the most common causes of neck pain is the shortening of muscles. This happens when we have our neck bent in an odd way but aren’t really paying attention to it; much like we do when we look at a screen all day.
When the muscles in the neck are shortened it aggravates the nerves in the area, making turning or even moving your head slightly very painful. The demonstration shows you how to target the exact area where the muscles have contracted. Turning your neck using an opposite hand will release the tension in your neck muscles, relieving you of pain.
Doing this exercise stimulates different nerves that send signals to your brain to release the shortened muscle. It only takes about 90 seconds and anyone can do it. If you suffer from intense neck pain this video could be a life changer!
