How to perform effective self-massage in cervical osteochondrosis?

Patients with cervical osteochondrosis need self-massage - it can really help them. It has been proven that the effect of the right therapeutic massage is not only pronounced, but also very long in time: the symptoms of osteochondrosis can disappear for several months after the first course. In addition, regular self-massage helps to improve the condition of the cervical spine, slowing down the progression of the disease.

What methods are safe and harmless to our necks?

An effective method of cervical disease is self-massage, which is a comfortable posture that can be performed in any comfortable chair. The movements start from behind, caressing, shaking and squeezing.

At the beginning of the self-massage, the posterior area is worked out between the shoulder blades and then moved to the shoulder girdle and chest zone, which is located above the mammary glands. Massage should not be painful. The stronger the movement, the fewer repetitions need to be performed.

We then go directly to the neck region: from the back of the head to the back with two hands along the spine, then massage the neck with squeezing movements, replacing them by tapping with the edge of the palm, with our brushes on both sides of the spine, and 3-4times we perform clamping movements. Finally, caress the back of your neck.

The third stage is rubbing. The finger pads are placed on the back of the head and then the skin is rubbed from top to bottom. The back of the neck is then rubbed in a circular motion toward the back and back of the head. The last stage of the self-massage repeats the first.
