Cervical spondylosis (also known as neck arthritis)

[su_spacer size=”10″]is a general term for age-related wear and tear affecting the spinal disks in your neck. As the disks dehydrate and shrink, signs of osteoarthritis develop, including bony projections along the edges of neck bones (bone spurs). Cervical spondylosis most often causes neck pain and stiffness.

neck pain (Cervical spondylosis )This condition is very common and it worsens with age. It usually affects people in their 40s and over, however, patients with cervical spondylosis in their 20’s and 30’s are frequent nowadays, too.

Why does it happen? The reasons are simple:

When keeping the same posture for a long period of time we lean forward causing the cervical vertebra to strain. It suppress the middle line of the back, from top of the head to the end of coccyx bone (the Du meridian 督脉). Du meridian is the governor of the Yang energy and spirit. When it is suppressed it affects the whole Yang of the body, which over the time causes the whole spine to be prone to be curved and spirit to be declined.

Therefore the human spirit is not consumed by the mental labor, but by the wrong posture!

How to tell if cervical vertebrae are healthy or not?

[su_spacer size=”10″]There are various signals from the body in the daily life, which correspond with different types of cervical spine problems:

These series of problems are all caused by the poor posture.

The good news is – one acupuncture point SI 3 (后溪 hou xi) can solve them all!

[su_spacer size=”10″]When a loose fist is made, this point is close to the head of the 5th metacarpal bone on the ulnar side at the junction of the red & white skin. SI 3 (后溪 hou xi)

This is a meeting point of eight extraordinary meridians, and through Du meridian, it can clear the heart fire, strengthen Yang energy, regulate cervical vertebra, benefit the eyes and straighten the spine. If you experience any of the symptoms described above this point will help to release the issues.

SI 3 (后溪 hou xi) stimulation

It’s very simple to self stimulate it. When you sit at a table, hold your fists on the edge of table against these two points and rub them gently rolling your fists back and forth for 3 to 5 minutes. Try to repeat it every one hour to achieve best results.

If you give it a try for one day, you will notice that your waist is not aching, neck is not tired from work and eyes are at ease. Try doing this simple exercise every day. I suggest to use an alarm clock on your mobile as a reminder. This exercise requires little effort and time and is well worth doing.

Remember! No matter how busy you are, only you are aware of your own body and only you can look after your own health!
