Treating Neck Pain Permanently Without Pills or the Knife
Neck Pain can be due to chronic stress, bad posture or an injury.
Stress causes spasms in the neck muscles causing pain and it can make our daily life miserable. Neck pain has become more common in the younger generation because they constantly look at their phones or computers. So the muscles become very tight and these can irritate the nerves and the blood vessels. The nerves from your feet and every internal organ go through the neck and send information to your brain. So if the muscle in the neck (trapezius) area gets shortened, it cuts out the circulation to your eyes and brain. This results in vision problems, dizziness, anxiety and also difficulty in breathing
Orange ray approach to treating neck pain
Neck pain can compress the nerves in the neck to result in radiating pain on the entire hand up to the fingertips and the patient may be in acute pain. In such a case we use acupuncture for the first 3-4 days to bring down the pain without the use of painkillers.
Once the pain is substantially reduced we start with yoga therapy.
Yoga therapy provides permanent relief for neck pain and spondylitis. It helps to create space between the cervical vertebrae and thus remove nerve compression.
It also aligns the spine and later conditions the muscles of the neck, shoulders and upper back.

Benefits of Yoga therapy( Iyengar style)
Iyengar yoga is a form of Hatha yoga that puts the focus on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength (stamina), mobility and stability are gained through the asanas.
Iyengar yoga is considered to be therapeutic, quasi-medical yoga and more effective for many treatments (pain syndromes, cardiovascular diseases, pulmonary and respiratory diseases, distress, depression, hormonal and endocrine disorders, gynaecological, gastroenterological diseases, arthritis, etc.). The Iyengar method uses supportive props and strictly designed sequences of postures to address an individual’s medical issues.
The general concept regarding a sequence of yoga poses predetermines that poses should not irritate the nervous system; there should be a strict order of practising (given that some asanas produce heat, stimulate, energize, activate, others produce coolness, abate, relax, etc.), appropriate preparation for inversions and backward extension. Sequencing, timing, and intricacy of poses in Iyengar method provide a framework to structure the progression and content of therapy, This is the secret behind the efficacy of treating neck pain or any other pain through Iyengar yoga therapy.
