Acupressure therapy and healing from stiff neck pain

Stiff or painful neck could be due to wrong sleeping posture or related to working at computer for long hours. Serious condition of stiff neck is related to muscular injury or ruptured disk.

The natural remedies in conjunction with medical care may help relieve neck pain, according to some health professionals.

Stimulation of an acupressure point on the back of the hand may provide relief for neck pain. The acupressure point, when stimulated, may release endorphins (chemicals) in the brain which have a pain relief effect similar to morphine. The stiff neck acupressure point is located on the back of the hand, between the bones in the depression behind the knuckles of the first and middle finger.

If the pain is on the left side of the neck, use the right hand acupressure point. Similarly, if the pain is on the right side of the neck, use the left hand acupressure point.

See Your Medical Doctor When...
•You have recurring neck pain or pain that lasts for more than three days.
•You have neck pain after a fall or an accident.
•Your neck pain runs down your arms or legs.
