Neck Pain Relief - The Best 5 Tools to Prevent and Fix Neck Pain

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. Neck pain can range from a mild, dull, annoying ache to persistent, severe, disabling pain.

 

My history of chronic neck pain was the purpose for founding Glow Yoga & Wellness 11 years ago. Even though I haven't been in an accident and was lucky to avoid any injuries, by the age of 27 I was in severe daily pain which had gone up to 10 out of 10. The cause of my excruciating pain was so boring! - improper daily posture - staring down at the computer and my phone (see the damaging effects of that in the video below). I've worked with at least 4 different chiropractors, did multiple X-Rays to diagnose it, and spent thousands of dollars on adjustments, physical rehab, neck braces, and all kind of funny-looking neck contortion devices, needless to say without any success.

 

After my endless doctors' visits, I was lucky to work with a chiropractor who had empowered me with daily strengthening tools, recommended me to take yoga classes twice a week, and invest in a monthly massage, and I can humbly say that today, as I am turning 40, I feel stronger than ever and I have healed my pain. What I've learned is that no matter what the cause is of our neck pain, or back pain, you-name-it-pain  - the solutions are quite simple, but here is the catch. The cure to chronic pain lies in our own responsibility, it's what we do every day after visiting the doctor's office. The secret to healing our pain is in our daily activities.

 

As I am keeping up with daily strengthening, yoga, regular massages, using the Muscle-Joint Care Oil when inflammation builds up - my neck pain is no longer part of my life. And not having daily pain is truly life-changing, friends.

Please check out my videos below explaining the reasons behind the current neck pain pandemic, and learn what toned neck-throat muscles have to do with better sleep, snoring, memory, and a healthier brain. We strengthen our necks in 360°Core and Yoga classes every day. Please remember it is DOING that makes a difference - not knowing 😁  Try the daily home sequences below - simple stretches, specific yoga sequences, daily tools you can do at your desk, and manual tension relief using massage therapy balls. I am the testament that chronic neck pain can be healed by applying the 5 steps I mentioned here and using the thoughtful strengthening and massage sequences we have recorded for our Neck-Shoulders Tension & Pain Relief Channel below.

5 Daily Steps for Neck Pain Relief:

 

1. Using Muscle-Joint Care Oil instead of Ice Packs. Ice numbs but also slows down the repair

2. Strengthening of the surrounding muscles: neck, shoulders, upper body. Low impact, resistance training - join our 360° Core classes 2-3 times a week in-person or On-Demand

3. Yoga at least twice a week in-person or On-Demand

4. Massage, any manual tension release, and blood flow stimulation 

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

If you feel that tension is becoming chronic, I recommend applying the cooling  Muscle-Joint Care Oil 2-3 times a day - it is better than ice packs at preventing inflammation buildup. And, please check our Pain Relief Channel which has home care sequences to relieve tension and pain in our back, knees, hips, and other specific areas of the body.

Why massage is even more important for people who don't workout daily:

1. Circulation = Healthy Immune System. Poor circulation fuels all dis-ease. Professional massage improves lymph-blood circulation to eliminate dead, damaged cells and toxins and distribute the nutrients to speed up all renewal and recovery.

2. Pain, Hormones, Digestion, Mental Health, Fertility. Massage reduces the stress hormone cortisol and increases oxytocin which restores the quality of sleep, digestion, and fertility. Massage has recently received empirical support for facilitating growth, reducing pain, increasing alertness, diminishing depression, and enhancing immune function and has become a part of cancer recovery treatment.

There are over 50 muscles in the face and neck that hold our skin: some need to relax, and some need 300% more circulation and stimulation. Part of this facial is a scalp massage to boost hair growth and prevent tension headaches.

I cannot wait for you to try this - it feels AMAZING!
