Got a crick in your neck?

Spring  is the time for cricks in the neck. In Oriental medicine “wind” pools at the base of the skull and causes the neck muscles to go into spasm. If you have a neck muscle spasm you might recall that you were exposed to strong winds that were more than irritating. Combine the aggravation and stress you might experience being out in windy conditions with temperature, barometric changes and the quick shrug of your shoulders when you attempt to protect yourself from a blast of wind. You can wind up with a wound up neck the NECKST morning.

 

That pain in the neck as been very prevalent around these parts this spring. The neck spasm will go away on it’s own, but sometimes they hang around (your neck) for a long time. Good news, acupuncture will clear that crick out in a few treatments.
