Neck pain, also known in medical terms as cervical spondylosis or osteoarthritis, is a condition that manifests itself by affecting the vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs at the level of the neck and by the wear and tear of the spinal canal, more precisely the nerves and spinal cord.
As the water content in the intervertebral discs decreases, they become brittle, the pressure increases and the cartilage that protects them deteriorates, causing pain and various complications.
Neck pain can be remedied by specific therapeutic exercises with the role of stretching and strengthening the muscles of the neck and shoulders and, thus, increasing the spaces between the intervertebral discs and reducing the pressure.
Also, the constant relaxation of the neck muscles through specific exercises can not only prevent the occurrence of cervical spondylosis, but also combat the pains already established.
The exercises are easy and involve turning the neck to the sides, bending the head forward and letting it fall back, raising and lowering the shoulders, turning the shoulders with the hands on the hips, raising the knee to the chest and bringing the forehead closer to it.
Another important aspect in preventing and improving cervical spondylosis is body posture. It is recommended by professionals with verified Lowry chiropractor reviews you can trust, to keep the spine straight, in the most natural position, regardless of whether we are sitting or walking. Sudden movements are contraindicated and, at least for a while, people experiencing back or neck pain should sleep on a hard bed, and without a pillow.
