Our life revolves around computers, phones and tables. The biggest cause for neck problems is poor posture — whether from leaning over a computer or hunching over a workbench — strains neck muscles.
Joints and muscles that are a “pain in the neck” can really stress us out physically and psychologically through the day.
The video below clearly explains the mechanism of how stiff neck occurs, but it also points out a great stretching exercises that will alleviate a stiff neck within 90 seconds!
It’s great to know that the cause of pain is actually a shortening of the muscle, when we are unaware that we have contorted our neck in an unnatural way, while sleep or awake. When the muscle shortens it irks the nerve which makes it painful for us to move our head.
Whats amazing about this video is that Dr. Mandell demonstrates how to target the exact place where the muscle has contracted, and how by turning the neck in a specific place it can be released.
This helpful tutorial will give you the knowledge to fix your own neck problems by stimulating nerves that will signal your brain to “debug” the shortened muscle.
In the era of computers, phones and tables, this will be the most helpful video you’ve seen in weeks!
