Many people are regularly suffering from stiff necks, as a result of constantly being on computers, phones, tablets and often just getting into a position while sleeping that causes a muscle spasm. Muscles and joints that are a “pain in the neck” can really cause both physical and psychological stress as we go through our day.
The video you are about to watch below, does a great job of not only explaining the mechanism of how stiff necks occur, but several great stretches and ways of pushing on trigger points on your own, that will greatly alleviate a stiff neck within 90 SECONDS!
It was actually fascinating to hear that what causes the pain is actually a shortening of the muscle, when we are unaware that we have contorted our neck in an unnatural way, while awake or asleep. When the muscle shortens it aggravates the nerve which makes it very painful to turn the neck.
What is great about his demonstration is that he demonstrates how to target the exact place where the muscle has contracted, and how by turning the neck and using the opposite hand it can be released. Cross fiber massage, placing knuckles into the muscle and several different stretches are easy to follow.
This tutorial will give you the ability to fix your stiff neck on your own, by stimulating nerves that will signal your brain to reset the shortened muscle. This was one of the most helpful videos we have seen on alleviating your own pain naturally and quickly.
