The human cervical vertebra is the most "precious" part of the human body. It carries the head and connects the trunk. It is not only the most active part of the spine, but also the hub connecting the central and peripheral nerves. Once a malfunction occurs, the consequences are serious. So be sure to take good care of it! How to maintain it? The orthopedic expert summarized a 24-hour maintenance schedule, so hurry up and take a look!
From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, at 7 o'clock in the morning, when Yang Qi is generating, you can first fry yourself with a bowl of anti cold soup to adjust the temperature of the cervical vertebra. The method is to fry 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 7 slices of ginger in water for 10 minutes before drinking.
At this point, we have been working at our desks for two or three hours, and our cervical vertebrae are already a bit tired. We might as well stop the work at hand and do a set of cervical exercises to breathe air into our cervical vertebrae!
Sit upright in your seat, take a few deep breaths to relax your body, and then do each of the following:
"Nod back and forth": Nod your head, lengthening your neck as much as possible, 30 times;
"Looking Left and Right": Rotate your head first to the left and then to the right and then to the rear, taking conscious acid swelling as the degree, and do it 30 times;
"Shake your head and shake your head": Rotate your head clockwise for 5 times, and then counterclockwise for 5 times.
Note that each movement is as gentle and gentle as possible.
The human spine has its inherent physiological curvature. If it is left in a posture for a long time, it can cause imbalances in the body, impeded blood circulation, and lead to muscle and bone damage.
First of all, cross your hands and ten fingers behind your head, and use your thumbs to press against the Fengchi acupoints on both sides for 3-5 minutes to improve blood supply to the brain.
Then, massage the Jianjing acupoint (the middle point of the shoulder opposite the middle finger), vigorously massage for 2-3 minutes until there is a feeling of soreness, and operate the same on the other side.
Finally, rub the neck back and forth slightly with both hands for about 50 times until you get warm, and use the other hand to do the same.
After work, it is advisable to meet a few friends and enjoy outdoor sports together, which can relax the cervical spine after a tiring day. Fast walking, jogging, swimming, yoga, etc. are all good sports.
"The muscles around the cervical spine can only be continuously contracted and relaxed through exercise to squeeze blood vessels and provide them with sufficient nutrition. Therefore, exercise is beneficial to the health of the cervical spine.".
As a busy office worker, you may not have enough time to prepare a healthy and nutritious breakfast and lunch, so it's okay. At dinner, you can have a "kidney tonic meal": add materials with kidney and marrow tonic functions such as walnuts, cornel meat, raw ground, black sesame, beef bone, etc. to the dinner, which can strengthen bones and muscles, delay kidney and spinal degeneration, and is very beneficial for maintaining the cervical spine.
When watching TV, you can learn "Little Swallow Fly" by leaps and bounds: Lie prone on a hard bed, lift your arms and legs slowly and gently upward at the same time, tilt your head back, contract your waist muscles, and try to support your body with your chest and abdomen. After 5 to 10 seconds, return your limbs and head to their original positions, relax your muscles, rest for 5 seconds, and repeat for 30 to 50 times. This action can increase the flexibility of the neck muscles.
An hour before bedtime, doing a hot compress with traditional Chinese medicine has a great effect on improving blood circulation in the neck and back, and alleviating muscle spasms. Stir fry a little fennel and half a kilogram of salt together, put them in a cloth bag, and then heat them on the back of the neck for about 30 minutes. Note that the temperature during hot compress should not be too high or too long to avoid scalding.
Pillows and beds are intimate companions of the cervical spine. "Yuanbao shaped" pillows with a low center and high ends or memory cotton pillows have a good support effect on the cervical spine, allowing it to be well relaxed.
For people with poor cervical vertebrae, give up overly soft spring beds. Wooden beds and brown stretch beds are the best choices!
