How to protect the cervical spine during yoga practice?
The cervical spine often has problems. I do n’t know if you have no experience with the pillow?
I woke up in the morning and found that my neck couldn’t move, or was it painful to turn my neck?
This is commonly known as falling pillow.
Most people explain that falling pillows are caused by poor posture during sleeping, and some people who Chinese medicine thinks they fall shoulders are due to poor blood circulation.
What is the reason for the absolute fall? From the painful experience of many people, it is usually the part where the condition occasionally occurs.
However, we usually do not pay attention to maintaining it, and it is no wonder that it occasionally complains.
If you know that the two most important bones that support our body, the spine, are the two most frequently affected parts, one is the lumbar spine and the other is the cervical spine, then you know that it is also important to pay attention to posture and maintain it.
Why are these two spines most often spurs and ectopic?
Because they are the two most rotatable segments in our spine.
We can easily rotate the azimuth 180 degrees, and the lumbar spine can also be rotated 90 degrees, but I don’t think anyone can turn the thoracic spine 90 degrees alone, right?
Because the cervical spine has a large range of motion, it is very important to have a short length of only a few knots.
It not only protects the head from arterial and venous infections, but also contains trachea and glands.
If there is a major cervical spine problem, how serious it is.
In addition, the specific problem is not just neck discomfort, it will progress to the head and down to the shoulders and hips.
Can solve neck problems, your headache, tight head and too much pressure, at least it can be replaced.
Maintenance method The maintenance method is very simple, usually rotate it to reset, do not let it stay in a fixed position for too long.
Some people have been using computers for a long time, just staring at the screen in front of them. They have hardly touched the whole day. One day is okay. One month and two months are fine. One year, I think his cervical spine will be normal.I’m afraid it will be difficult.
However, be careful when turning transparency, and don’t use excessive force.
Some people are accustomed to twisting their necks and twisting the inserts so that they can loosen their shoulders and necks.
As everyone knows, this is a very dangerous move. It may be that his shoulders and neck are stiff that day. If he can’t twist it like usual, it will easily happen.
Therefore, I suggest that when you wake up in the morning or when it is cold, and you keep the same posture for a long time, you should start to turn your head and meditate on the principle of “slow, big”.
The first lap, the slower the second lap, the better.
And imagine your chin drawing a big circle in the air.
If the neck and neck are particularly tight, you can stay there for one to three more breaths.
Remember to turn clockwise, and do it counterclockwise.
Points for Attention to Asanas Some literatures on yoga asanas, if you do not pay attention, you may feel shoulders and neck tension when you return home.
So I have repeatedly reminded that in yoga, pay more attention to the posture of this part, and the key to relax at any time.
Many people often twist the neck too much, which is the main cause of shoulder and neck discomfort after asana.
For example, when leaning back, you will unconsciously suppress it and let your eyes see the rear.
If you look at your side from the mirror, you will find that the curvature of the entire spine to the neck is larger, as if the neck is twisted.
When doing the cobra pose, many people have the same situation, that is, the neck is bent back too much.
Not to mention camel, bow.
To avoid this fact, when doing asanas (not just leaning back), please always tell yourself that your chin should be slightly retracted to lengthen the cervical spine and keep the entire back spine in a natural state.
For back-and-back-like movements, the spine should be smoothly curved, not deformed to the neck.
