Yoga for neck pain

Introduction 

In the busy hustle and bustle of life, there is a lot that the human body suffers. People spend hours working in front of the laptop or computer in their workplaces. Kids and many adults are also addicted to mobile phones, be it for work or entertainment. But all this creates some kind of tension in the neck and shoulder area. This causes the muscles to be strained and that is when people suffer from neck pain, back pain, and discomfort in the shoulders. But there is good news. Although many of the doctors do suggest pain killers to treat the pain, there are a number of yoga exercises that can actually help you to alleviate the pain and relax those tense muscles. Below mentioned are some of the popular yoga exercises that aid in relaxing the body and giving you relief from neck pain. 

Uttanasana

To perform this yogasana, you must stand with the feet hip-width apart and the hands placed on your buttocks. As you exhale, bend forward, sliding the hands down the back of your legs, and bringing the chest toward your thighs and then tucking your chin. As you inhale, lead with your chest as you lift it away from your belly and slightly lift the chin. Bring the torso halfway up and the hands alongside the knees, and squeeze the shoulder blades together. As you exhale, bend forward, sliding the hands back toward the heels and relaxing the shoulder blades as you tuck your chin. You must repeat this asana about 6 to 8 times. 

Vajrasana

To perform this yogasana, you must come to kneeling position with both of your arms overhead. As you exhale, tighten the belly around the low back as you bend forward, sweeping the arms down and behind the back, resting the hands on the sacrum, palms up. Bring the chest towards the thighs, and the forehead toward the floor. As you inhale, lead with the chest and sweep the arms wide, flattening your upper back to return to your starting position. You must repeat this asana about 6 to 8 times.

Cakravakasana

To perform this yogasana, you must start with your hands and knees with  shoulders above your wrists, and  hips above your knees. As you inhale, lift up the chest away from the belly, flattening the upper back while drawing the shoulder blades closer to each other. As you exhale, you must gently contract the belly and around the low back without collapsing the chest over the belly. Bring the hips back and toward the heels as you bend the elbows and lower the chest toward your thighs, and the forehead is towards the floor. You must repeat this asana for around 6 to 8 times.
