Suffering From Chronic Neck Pain? Meditation Could Be The Answer


I used to go to school by cycle in my childhood days. One fine day at the railway crossing, I bent down the railway gate when it was closed. But dashed against the heavy metal gate on my neck. From that day till now sometimes I suffer from haunting neck pain. So this study caught my attention. Hope this will be helpful if you are suffering from chronic neck pain.

Meditation

Meditation may be the perfect answer to your chronic neck pain. Chronic neck pain may cripple your performance and may even lead to depression. You will be constantly suffering from it and others might not understand it.

A group of 89 people suffering from neck pain and stress was separated into meditation and exercise groups. The results were astonishing. Meditation significantly reduced pain when compared to exercise. It also greatly reduced pain related worries.



Yoga

An earlier German study points out that yoga appears to be an effective treatment for neck pain and provides a double plus of improved psychological well being and quality of life. 

The study authors say that yoga might enhance toning of muscles and release muscle tension. The relaxation responses associated with yoga could reduce stress related muscle tension and modify neurobiological pain perception. Guess what? Iyengar yoga could be very helpful in reducing chronic neck pain.

Take care,
