Persistent neck pain and stiff shoulders?
Neck pain is a very common problem. Research proves that at least 70% of the population suffers from some form of neck pain. Research also shows that over 80% of the cases are being neglected and untreated, which leads to more chronic problems later on.
It is not a new experience for most individuals. But, if your neck pain doesn’t seem to go away when you normally would, you might be suffering from chronic neck pain that is not easy to get rid of.
It can also be a serious problem, but over-the-counter and home remedies can relieve mild to moderate neck pain. Treating acute neck pain will make you feel better faster, but it won't cure the underlying causes that make your neck sore or stiff in the first place. If your goal is to prevent neck pain or reduce the frequency or intensity of future bouts, you'll need to treat the underlying cause and avoid re-injuring your neck.
Can Massage Help Relieve Neck Pain?When it comes to relaxing a tight neck and shoulders, massage is one of the most reliable and risk-free methods. Research has shown that regular neck massage may alleviate symptoms enough for some people to forego medical care.
Benefits of Neck Massage:
- Strengthens and stretches the neck.
- improves the immune system by increasing blood flow to the brain
- Helps in reducing inflammation and soreness in the neck, shoulders, and head.
- Brings mental calm and stress relief.
However, many people find it difficult to schedule massage treatment and find a time that works for them. The cost and commitment involved in maintaining regular massage sessions might add up.
So it is always encouraged in Ayurveda to incorporate massage into your daily wellness routine.
It doesn’t have to be complicated neither do you need to be a professional in giving yourself a simple lymphatic massage.
Potential Risks in Neck Massage
The stiffness and pain are reduced by getting a neck massage. However, using the incorrect tool or having someone without expertise complete it has its own set of dangers. The neck is a very delicate location and is linked to the spinal cord, making it more more perilous.
Although massage is generally safe, using too much pressure might leave you feeling uncomfortable and unwell after the session. The wrong kind of pressure applied to an injured area might make it worse.
So using a gentle and easy to use massage tool is vital in hunting for your best remedy.
What’s the Best Massage Tool for Neck Pain?
Using your hand, you may perform a traditional self massage on your neck area and shoulders. However, it is always more convenient to use a massager.
Many of those neck pain sufferers have been on a journey finding the best massage tool, and we can only recommend the best that have been proven at least 97% among those who have tried and experienced amazing results - the Kansa wand.
