Although neck problems are common, people don't pay much attention to them until they feel pain in the neck. The neck or cervical spine has the highest incidence. It consists of seven vertebrae and 26 muscles, as well as many other structures such as blood vessels and nerves. It moves and stabilizes the head and ACTS as a conduit for the rest of the body to connect to the brain.
The position we adopt when looking at our phones, laptops or even books can lead to a continuous forward orientation of the head, which can often lead to weakness and pain in the neck. Untreated neck pain can lead to other problems, such as headaches, jaw pain, or even shoulder or back pain.
Unfortunately we are not professionals and rarely work out the neck muscles, which are often overlooked. Not only are these muscles smaller than most other muscles, they are also often difficult to aim at. Most people don't even know where to start. If you have neck problems, for example, here are a few simple exercises, stretching exercises, and soft tissue release techniques that can quickly relieve fatigue.
1. Strengthen deep neck flexor
Allow yourself to lie down and gently bring your chin towards your neck to form a double chin. You will feel the base of the skull being stretched, which will activate the muscles at the front of the neck. Do this exercise for 5 to 10 seconds, 8 to 10 times a day
Step 2 stretch
The scalenus and sternocleidomastoid are often tight muscles in the neck. First stretch the upper muscles. Hold this stretch for a maximum of 30 seconds. Repeat on the other side.
3. Strengthen blood circulation
If you feel a knot in your neck, or if the area is particularly painful or tight, try using a foam roller for self-release, massage or (carefully) use a massage gun for self-release. Apply direct pressure for about 10 seconds and release it to promote blood flow to the area.
4. Strengthen your chin
When standing or sitting, try to avoid holding your head down or your chin protruding. Think about chin exercises while you're sitting or standing, and try lengthening your neck, as if someone were pulling a rope from the back of your head to the ceiling.
