8 Yoga Poses To Help Cervical Spine & Neck Issues

This information helps us know on how yoga can relieve neck pain.

When a person goes through a terrible car accident, this can cause your cervical spine to deviate, suffer from various hernias, and some other serious injuries.

It can be said, without a doubt, yoga has been an alternative for many, as it can be achieved by practicing this exercise; it relieves pain and even can get rid of hernias.

There is a lack of information on the benefits that yoga offers for problems in the spine and neck. We hope this article will help improve that trend.

Of course, we are not doctors, but yoga is an option to treatments with chiropractors, acupuncturists, traumatologists, osteopaths and specialists in the spine. So here are some tips and tricks.

To relieve pain at any time, here are some yoga postures that will release all areas around your neck, and allow you to feel more relaxed and less tense:

1. Open the shoulder in 8 points: Begin lying on the floor face up. Raise your right arm at a 90-degree angle, palm up.

If you feel you have more space, join your left hand with the right clasp and breathe deep for a while until you feel good.

2. Shoulder opening on blocks: You start on your knees. Place two blocks in front of you and then proceed to place your elbows on the blocks.

Press hands together in prayer position. Then let the head rest between the blocks and reverse the sentence from the back. Stay that way till you complete 10 deep breaths.

3. Place your arms in cow’s face posture: get on your knees, raise your right arm towards the ceiling; Bend your right elbow, and allow your right hand to fall on the shoulder blades.

Take your left hand with your right elbow and allow the weight of the hand to deepen the opening of the shoulder (without pushing).

Stay like this for five deep breaths, lean a little back.

Or if the closure is easy, take the left arm down, bend the elbow, and place the left hand to the center of the back, grabbing the right hand.

Stay in that position for five deep breaths; tilt back a little with your arms and being careful that your right arm is not exerting any pressure on your neck.

4. Standing and opening the shoulder: Stand, clasp hands behind your sacrum, through softening your knees and bend forward

Breathe in here for five to ten deep breaths.

5. Opening the shoulder on the wall: Place the forearms on the wall parallel to each other below shoulder height, leaving elbows and shoulders apart.

Take a few steps back from the wall and allow the head down to relax between your arms. Take five deep breaths.

6. The pose of the fish: While sitting, place a block of half height behind, vertically below the shoulder blades, where you can place another block behind it, vertically, to use as a pillow for the head.

(Use smaller blocks in size if this height does not sit very well on your back) Allow your body to rest gently on the blocks. Adjust yourself to the pose until you feel comfortable, with your arms resting on either side.

7. Threading the needle: You must position yourself to crawl.

Stretch your right arm under the body, allowing your shoulder to touch the ground. Your left hand should stay where it is, or crawl a little to the right over your head.
Take 10 deep breaths, and then repeat on the other side.

8. Sitting with Spinal twist: You should sit on your crouch.

Bend the right knee and place the right foot outside the left knee. (You can keep your left leg along or bend it in half like a seat, with your legs crossed.)

Wrap your left arm around your right leg and place your right hand on the floor behind the sacrum. Take 5 deep breaths, then repeat on the other side.
