NECK AND SHOULDER PAIN

NECK PAIN RADIATING TO SHOULDER

    2550 YEARS AGO BUDDHA SAID
         SABBA LOKO PAKAMPITHO
        SABBA LOKA PAJJALITHO 

WHICH MEANS
EVERYTHING VIBRATES
EVERYTHING IS ENERGY.

A CENTURY AGO EINSTEIN SAID
EVERYTHING VIBRATES.
EVERYTHING IS ENERGY, THAT IS ALL THERE IS TO IT.
     
     This sequence concentrates on neck pain radiating out onto the shoulder. The smallest of things can complicate a problem and the smallest of things can solve a problem. So the 1st small thing to solve this is sleep without a pillow and turn your head in the direction in which your neck hurts, the trunk remaining straight ( lie down in supine position and turn head towards the side which hurts.)

    This sequence is very easy and does not take much of your time either, and trust me the pain is relieved in about a week. Do each aasana 9 times, it is worth it. The breathing is the most important thing, because even the for smallest exercise the muscles require oxygen, or else the anaerobic process will lead to less energy and more lactic acid accumulation. 

1. SAMASTHITHI OR THADA AASAN

INHALE AND EXHALE.




2. URDHVA MUKHA (UP) BRAHMA MUDRA

ON INHALATION look up, and on EXHALATION back to the centre. Do not move your head up and down directly it will strain your neck more. UP TO CENTRE AND DOWN TO CENTRE. 
   And the view of a city at the back is because of me standing on a 'piece' of the terrace. 😂 But everyone do exercise in a safe space. ✌


3. ADHOMUKHA ( DOWN ) BRAHMA MUDRA

ON INHALATION down and on EXHALATION back to the centre.

Head to the centre first, on INHALATION turn head to the right, on EXHALATION back to the centre.
