Neck Pain Issues

Neck pain relief, neck pain

Neck pain can be complicated to heal because of how complex the bones, muscles and ligaments in the neck are, not to mention the connections to the upper back. Misalignments and tight muscles in the neck and upper back can combine to make a big mess of pain. But, it isn’t that hard to unravel with a little knowledge, most of which is here on

One neck issue that is all too common is a buging disc between C5 and C6. Pain first happens in the neck which can be constant. The second thing that happens all too often is that the disc compresses on the nerve that runs down the arm. This can cause tingling in the neck and arm which often turns painful.

Like so many other health issues the main cause of this neck pain is sugar and processed foods that release their stored sugar quickly. This causes problems in the body’s sugar handling mechanism. The information from this system is conveyed to the brain via the vegus nerve which splits off at C5 in the neck.

This causes something like a traffic jam where all the nerves come together with the excess sugar information from the gut which gets jammed up at C5. That jam up causes C5 to rotate out of alignment. Eventually the disc below and sometimes the one above will bulge. There’s a little more to it that you can read about here.

If a bulging disc remains untreated long enough, it can rupture. That is, it breaks open in such a way that the contents spill out into the surrounding tissue. That is when the real pain is most likely to set in. And, there isn’t much that can be done about it, not to a high degree of success anyway. Oh, there are holistic treatments, and surgical remedies, but the success rate of both isn’t as high as you would like it to be. Suffice to say, you want to get your neck taken care of before the problem goes that far!

A much more minor issue is waking up with neck pain. You sleep crooked and wake up with a problem you think you have to live with it until it works itself out. But, it doesn’t really work itself out, at least not for a few days. Usually, that is a simple misalignment combined with tight muscles. That is actually pretty easy to take care of yourself with just a couple of easy to learn techniques, including Self Adjusting Technique.

One of the worst kinds of neck pain is one that doesn’t go away even with a chiropractic adjustment. These are the kind of problems that drives most chiropractors crazy. Fortunately, more and more of them are learning how to deal with hidden issues such as trapped emotions.

Yes, emotions can and do get trapped in the muscles and connective tissues around joints. The tension from these emotional components cause tension in the nearby muscles which can pull joints out of alignment. Then, the area gets adjusted only to pull itslef out of alignment again!

Releasing emotional components that are trapped in muscles takes a different skill alltogether. The technique I use is called The Emotion Code. If you ask, I’ll send you the link to an unpublished video that shows how to do the short form Emotion Code. It isn’t published because I haven’t decided what to do with it. To be honest, I’m thinking of creating an information product that uses it. But if you ask, it’s yours just for being a reader of mine!

There are other causes of neck pain, too many in fact. I have dealt with most of them successfully using holistic methods. And, sometimes without even seeing the client in person.

If you have neck pain or other health issues I can help with a phone/Skype session. Feel free to contact me to see what might work best for you. I charge on a sliding scale, and guarantee that you will be happy with what I do for you or there will be no charge.

Hello and welcome to my blog! There are several reasons I decided to start writing a blog on natural self-healing. The main thing I want to do is to share information on health and healing so that people can take action to heal themselves using natural techniques. I have met so many people who couldn't afford natural health care. They may have had health insurance, but they didn't trust that model. Many people want to know how to be healthy naturally. They want to know what really works and what doesn't. They want to be health conscious and often fail because of poor information, lack of knowledge, bad science and other factors. This blog is intended to help demystify the body and its various functions and to help people understand what is really needed to obtain optimum health. One of the great things about knowledge of the body is that once you know and understand how it works it becomes easy to know what the right things to do for it. And, it is much easier to do the right things when the consequences of the wrong things are fully understood. To do this I will be drawing from the knowledge of many people that I have learned from. I will talk about biochemistry relating that to what is needed to obtain optimum health. There will be information about the physical structure of the body and how to keep that aligned and functioning well. A major part of yoga has to do with health, so information about yogic techniques will be included. Mental and emotional health are important for the health of the body/mind, so articles about these topics will be included. And, there will be an occasional article about me and what I am up to. Hopefully I can relate that back to some health issue as well. The title Self Adjusting Technique comes from my technique for self-adjusting the structural part of the body, that is adjusting the body's various vertebrae and joints. For this blog it will include the idea of how to adjust health issues for yourself and those you care about. With a little knowledge there is a lot people can do to help heal themselves and stay healthy. I want to explain complex information about the body in a way that is easy to understand and useful. The comments section will help in that goal as people can ask for clarification if there is something they don't understand. And maybe we can get some helpful input from people smarter than me that will benefit us all. I hope you find information that can help you with your health issues. Kalidasa
