A stiff neck can be the end of your day. Once the stiffness takes hold, you’re essentially immobile and most likely in serious pain, too much to go about your day-to-day activities. Well, no more! Now you can take back the power by stopping stiffness in its tracks. There’s no need for expensive treatments or invasive surgeries, all you need to banish neck stiffness is a single towel. Can it be that easy? Prepare to be surprised.
Not only does this treatment require only a towel, but it only takes about 10 seconds to complete! It just gets better and better.
Japanese YouTube channel, care4body, shares with us how to execute this technique and just how well it works. Although you can only understand the conversation being held if you speak Japanese (which, sadly, we do not), it’s not difficult to see how effective this method works. The look on this woman’s face before and after speaks volumes!
At the start of the video, the young woman is lying flat down on her back with a look of serious pain on her face. Anyone who has experienced stiffness in their neck can understand what she’s going through at that moment. (Spoiler alert, it’s not fun.)
One of the people in the room with her takes a folded towel and lifts up her left shoulder. Gently, he sticks the towel under her shoulder, elevating it maybe six inches off the table. He then instructs her to breathe deeply, which she does for about ten seconds.
For anyone who suffers from this stiff neck pain, this look of relief is probably everything you’ve ever wanted. This, coupled with the fact that this solution is free and quick, makes it essentially a miracle treatment.
Most stiff necks occur from incorrect sleeping. Although, staying in a position too long with a forward head posture can also lead to neck stiffness and pain. The earlier you can make corrective changes to the muscle, the quicker the recovery. But if you’re having a hard time finding the right sleeping adjustments (sometimes you can’t really control when or how you sleep) this is a quick and simple solution to reversing the affects of a bad night’s sleep…or many.
We hope this little trick will help you resolve your issue of painful neck stiffness while also saving you money and time!
