Neck. What exercise routine is right for me?

By Editorial Team (2)

Your neck is the most flexible part of your spine. It’s easy to abuse! That’s why neck pain is so common and troubles so many people in a variety of different ways. Sharp pain, nagging pain, muscle spasms, headaches and even visual changes can all be symptoms of problems in the cervical spine.  Diseases such as vegetovascular dystonia (VVD), vertebrobasilar insufficiency (VBI) and cervico-occipital pain are commonly associated with cervical spine damage.

The approach shown by Doctor Borschenko in his isometric exercises is an effective way to get rid of chronic pain and prevent the development of further disease.  A special no-impact training of the ligaments and muscles of the cervical spine allows the stiffened and painful vertebrae to regain their freedom of movement and restores pain-free function.

Static-isometric exercises do not include routines that punish and torture the vertebrae and intervertebral discs like so many other exercise programs. This gentler form of exercise can easily be done by just about anyone. It’s entirely possible to strengthen ligaments and muscles without overloading the joints simply by assuming certain positions. No-impact positions.

These exercises can easily done by elderly individuals or by people who lead a sedentary lifestyle. Those who have undergone cervical spine surgery or those who suffer from chronic pain syndrome can easily follow the instructions and benefit from the routines.   

Young and active people can also incorporate the exercises into their physical training plan to effectively strengthen their cervical spine and slow down the normal aging process of the spine. Only a few minutes of isometric gymnastics a day will restore flexibility, improve the health of the spine and help reduce pain and muscle spasms.

Devote a few minutes a day to isometrics to restore the proper functioning of your cervical vertebrae and get rid of those tiresome aches and pains forever.

Many doctors recommend that their patients be intentional about devoting time to physical activity and exercise to strengthen their spine, back and accessory muscles. Most of agree this is an excellent idea. We’re ready to start an exercise routine immediately, even it means sweating our way to better health and wellness. We all know in our hearts, if not in our spines, that our overall health depends on physical activity. So why don’t we follow our doctor’s recommendation? Why don’t we do the things our hearts and our backs are telling us to do?

There are many reasons. Some reasons are entirely valid and others are just excuses. Many times, questions come up at the very start of wellness training sessions. No one answers our questions to our liking, so the whole prospect of pursuing a healthier life gets shelved.  Another problem that often occurs is that beginning an exercise routine starts to aggravate an existing condition. The result of that aggravation is pain. Pain leads to fear, our fear leads us to abandon totally the program we started.  And it’s nearly impossible to begin a program again once you’ve been frightened.
