neck pain

A bad posture when sleeping, a sudden movement or spending hours reading or in front of the computer, with the fixed gaze and remaining static, are common causes of that annoying pain in the neck that causes real discomfort.

It is something that already happens that, in principle, should not be given too much importance, but if that pain is persistent, repeats frequently or appears just when we move, and not at rest, it could be a symptom of some pathology that would need a specific treatment. The physiotherapist in Dwarka explains that cervicalgia is one of the signs that could indicate cervical osteoarthritis.

How to ease the discomfort of poor posture

When it comes to simple pain, which is clearly the result of temporary muscle contracture or accumulated tension in the cervical area after a stressful day, the physiotherapist in Janakpuri advises a series of simple exercises that can greatly relieve the discomforts that arise when moving the neck, also managing to speed recovery so that the pain disappears as soon as possible and we recover our well-being.

When doing neck exercises, it is important to be in a comfortable position, better seated, with a straight back without straining it and maintaining, at all times, normal and fluid breathing. The experts also remember that it is normal to feel discomfort when starting the exercises, although, logically, that pain can never become unbearable and should decrease as the muscles adapt to the demand that we are demanding. If your neck hurts too much when doing the exercises, you should stop immediately.

If you’ve gotten up with torticollis, try sitting in a chair and then roll your neck to the right trying not to raise your shoulders. Hold the pose for a few seconds, and then make the turn to the opposite side. It is a simple movement, but doing it with the neck absolutely stiff is not so easy. The effectiveness lies in making the turn very slowly, to give time to both the cervical and the neck muscles, to gradually eliminate the accumulated tension and regain their normal position.

A second exercise consists of doing the same thing, but this time, slowly tilting the head forward and then repeating backward. In this case, the important thing is to avoid throwing the whole head (and half a trunk) forward.  Effective movement involves getting only the first vertebrae in your spine to move.

To complete the session, act in the same way, but now, turning your head laterally, so that it is those muscles on the sides of your neck that stretch slowly and little by little, you notice relief.
