Neck Pain Relief - The Best 5 Tools

August 2021

Thank you! Hope you have a peaceful day

Today, nobody is immune to neck pain - people as young as teenagers are affected by this common condition. According to PubMed, neck pain affects about two-thirds of people at some stage. My chronic neck pain was the purpose of founding Glow Yoga & Wellness 11 years ago. Even though I haven't been in an accident, by the age of 27 I was in pain every day and it had gone up to 10 out of 10. The cause of my excruciating chronic neck pain was the improper daily posture, staring down at my office desktop and the phone (see the video below). I have tried at least 4 different chiropractors, did 4 X-Rays and diagnoses, spent thousands of dollars at chiropractors' treatments, and what I've learned is that no matter what the cause is for neck pain - the solutions are quite simple, but here is the catch. The solution to neck pain is our responsibility, it's what we do after the doctor's office. The secret to healing our neck pain, back pain, and any joint pain are in the daily care we do. I am grateful to my chiropractor who had empowered me to self-care and I can humbly say that today, as I am turning 40 years old, I have not visited him in 8 years. As I am keeping up with daily strengthening, yoga, regular massages, using the cooling oil when inflammation builds up - my neck pain is no longer part of my life. 

5 Daily Steps for Neck Pain Relief:

 

1. Cooling down the inflammation using the cooling pads or cooling Muscle-Joint Care Oil

2. Strengthening of the surrounding muscles: neck, shoulders, upper body. Low impact, resistance training daily

3. Mindful daily stretches and yoga at least 2 times a week

4. Massage, blood flow stimulation 

5. Practicing proper postural alignment throughout the day, by not letting our head tilt forward.
