More specifically, you want help with How to Relieve a Stiff Neck?

hey guys in this video we’re gonna talk about how to relieve neck stiffness and neck pain okay so I have my friend right here and we’re just gonna kind of show you some insights on what what’s behind stiffness of the neck okay now the first thing you need to know is that 90 percent of all the motion in the neck happen between the skull and the first bone right up in here okay so when you turn your head most the motion is up here not down here so that’s kind of what we’re going to be focusing on with this technique it’s between this first bone called the Atlas and the skull okay so that’s number one number two so you can see on this plastic model that there are muscles tendons and ligaments that tightly connect the skull to the first bone right here okay and the second bone as well so there’s a lot of muscles and ligaments and tendons that are connecting these two right here and from whiplash from injury they can get really really tight okay now one thing you need to know is that if your digestion is off if you have a lot of constipation or bloating there’s certain nerves that can go up to the brainstem and make make this area very very tight in other words you can have a lot of neck stiffness from your digestion so that would explain the people who do a lot of massage and chiropractic to the neck but it keeps coming back over and over and over in which case you would want to do some work on the digestive system I put a link down below how to do that but in this video we’re going to talk specifically what you do for this upper upper cervical area right here okay so the first test we’re going to do we’re going to put our thumbs right underneath your skull and we’re going to rock it back and forth to feel the motion and you’re going to put your thumb on these little outer projections of the first cervical vertebra called the transverse process okay so let’s go ahead and do that right now so the first thing I’m going to do is we want to just take your thumbs and kind of dish them underneath your skull okay right here and then you want to kind of turn your head left and right and what you’re looking at what you’re feeling is the symmetry or the movement of the first bone and see if it’s moving from left to right so you’re gonna turn all the way and turn this way right here so on me when I go this side I can feel this does not want to keep going okay now chiropractic could fix this pretty quick and I do recommend you find a chiropractor if you have an obstructed or a lack of range of motion on this area however we’re going to just work on the muscles right here so so the technique of this is you’re going to take your thumb and you’re just going to stretch like three or four times into the area of restriction okay and then you’re going to just kind of move your neck around you’re gonna see it like opened up really really nice okay that’s step one so you’re basically just isolating the area of lack of motion getting it to move better stretching it and then we’re gonna do step two so in step two what we want to do is you want to take these ligaments and muscles that are connecting between the skull and the first and second bones right here and we’re going to stretch these okay so this is more of a stretch and we want to just separate the skull from this first bone right here so we’re going to do with our thumbs and we’re going to be stretching up this way okay now if you think about your head is on a little little rod right here and it’s rotating like this right so we’re going to be stretching all these ligaments and tendons from here all the way around in a circular manner right here so right here we want to stretch this way here this way okay and then here this way and then over here so we’re going to be stretching around the central point okay so I’m going to demonstrate this right now okay so the first thing you do is going to take your thumb and you’re just going to take right underneath the skull and you’re going to lift and flex forward okay so you’re going to kind of you’re separating out the distance between the skull and the first a cervical vertebra okay so you’re gonna stretch it several times and you’re going to insert them more to the midline and start to stretch it forward so you’re tucking your chin in like this and you’re lifting the skull you’re creating space okay now we’re going to inch a little bit inward this way and come up this way up this way okay and come to the center right here and then I like to take my middle finger right here I’m not flipping you off but I’m going to take my middle finger and I’m going to take my thumb and just kind of stretch it so I can use both hands and I’m lifting up and going forward okay I’m creating a space and then I’ll take right here and I’ll stretch this way this is the do-it-yourself version and I’m creating just a space between here to raise that up okay so right now my neck feels like one of those little heads in the back of the car like the neck is really nice and loose so go ahead and do this right now pause the video and come back for step number three now that you actually open the space through here okay number three we’re gonna actually work on the muscles on the front part right here you have a lot of different muscles and ligaments that are right underneath the neck that go to the front part of the spine and we’re gonna stretch that out okay so for this one you’re gonna just take your thumb okay up underneath this mandible right here your chin and you’re going to just kind of press up underneath the muscles it’ll be very tender and you’re just going to massage those right here right here okay you’re gonna come right around and start working the muscles up underneath this mandible okay and what I like to do is I like to take my the muscles here and stretch okay you can do it one at a time okay good so now quick little stress what we do is we kind of loosened up the front part and now go ahead and move your neck around should be very nice and loose so we release the front part and the back part this is a real quick way of getting your neck really really loose so go ahead and try this and put your
