We are finally here to help all those that suffer from a stiff neck! You will forget about all over-the-counter painkillers, that cause various adverse effects.
The following simple, fast and super-effective method will help you treat these aches.
According to chiropractor Dr. Andrew Bang, the pain in the neck is most often caused by weakened neck muscles. Therefore, if you spent too much time driving, sleeping in an improper sleeping position, you stare at the screen for hours..you should be aware that the stiff neck is a result of it.
Dr. Bang continues:
“When your neck muscles become weak and you try to turn your head, the joint no longer moves smoothly because it’s now out of place. Often the joint catches on something, either pulling a muscle or hitting the nerve irregularly, or maybe both.
Then you’ll have instant pain and your body has a protective spasm. It will clench, causing you to feel like you can’t even move.”
Yet, this 10-second magical trick will help you relieve the neck pain in an hour!
You should lie on the back, and put a towel under one shoulder. Then, cross the opposite arm over the body, breathe slowly, and hold for a few seconds. Then, switch sides.
The following Japanese video provides more instructions on how to perform this trick.
Moreover, the Cleveland Clinic also advises the tricks below as a way to relieve the pain in the neck:
- Squeeze the shoulder blades together and release. Make 10 repetitions.
- Roll the shoulders backward 10 times.
- Tilt the head to one side to touch the shoulder with the ear. Make 10 repetitions.
