As you learned from the previous post, the first big NO for the neck is DON’T send your chin up.
Let’s study the second big NO – don’t twist.If looked at the anatomy in the previous post you already know why not to do it. But we do know that the twist are extremely beneficial for any parts of the spine. Yes and no. Yes, if they are done with the proper technique.
This pose is excellent for releasing the tension in the neck. Slide your chin horizontally forward while exhaling and draw it back to the neutral position. Again, major mistake here is when you start lifting your chin up instead of moving it horizontally. Repeat it 7-10 times making sure that your chin keeps moving parallel to the ground.
I consider the previous pose as preparation for this one.
#1 While inhaling move your chin forward.
#2 Exhaling turn your head to the right very slowly.
#3 With the next inhalation return your head to the position #4.3.1
#4 With exhalation get your chin into neutral position
Make sure that your chin always moves horizontally and is always parallel to the ground. This is the safest way to twist the neck. Again, if you have constant pain in your neck, consider going to the doctor, making x-ray and come to me.
