People all over the world are using a rolled-up towel to perform homemade techniques in order to relieve neck pain, reverse bad posture and even that ugly neck hump.
But can these practices actually replace your chiropractor appointments and restore your neck health?
As a chiropractor, I am often asked by clients if alternative techniques like neck massages or the “rolled towel” work well enough to replace dedicated neck health practices like specific stretches, exercises and interventions.
Do These Homemade Techniques Actually Work To Eliminate Neck Pain?
The truth is that while these alternatives may help to temporarily reduce the pain and discomfort, simply massaging or hanging your neck with a towel won’t have any noticeable or long-term impact on your neck health, neck hump or posture.
Besides being a little tricky to do it alone, most of the time - if you're not an experienced physician - chances are that you won't apply the adequate amount of pressure or the right angle to have an effective impact on your neck muscles and posture.
If you are looking for something to effectively eliminate neck pain and reverse bad posture, I would instead recommend investing in a good device that performs what's really important for the neck:
An evidence-based technique known as cervical traction.
The cervical traction technique (a fancy name for “stretching your neck at the exact angle of 26 degrees”) is proven to:
- eliminate neck pain
- decompress the spine and lengthen tight muscles
- release muscle tension
- restore the natural curvature of your neck
This is because when you stretch the neck at this specific angle, it essentially “unlocks” your neck.
Decompressing the discs, releasing pressure on pinched nerves and lengthening tight muscles. Nutrient-rich blood flow also floods into the neck, aiding in the reversal of damage.
This works to eliminate neck pain, poor posture and fight against neck hump.
‘Nowadays it’s very common for people to spend a large part of their day hunched over a desk, TV, or smartphone.
This is something that really harms the muscles in your neck and upper back…
Compressing the discs in the vertebrae…
And making your neck stiff and sore.
And to heal them / undo this damage, you need to perform “cervical traction” to your neck - and there are few products that actually do what’s necessary to achieve this.
In the last 3 years I’ve tested hundreds of neck products… (so you don’t have to)
And I’ll share with you the top product that actually helped me and my clients eliminate neck pain and restore a confident posture:
It's called the Neck Cloud™ Cervical Traction Device and over 90,000 people have left positive reviews. Full details are below.
A DEVICE THAT TARGETS THE "ROOT CAUSE" OF THAT NASTY NECK HUMP
Dr Story - American Chiropractor with The Neck Cloud™
Dr. Story is an American Chiropractor who noticed a huge spike in poor posture, neck hump and chronic neck pain thanks to so many people working from home during the pandemic...
He barely had enough time to see them all, so he created an new medical device his patients could use at home instead of visiting his clinic 2-3 times a week.
The new device is called The Neck Cloud™
How does it work?
When people sit at a desk for extended periods, your head sits further forward than it should, and this puts an additional 30kg of pressure on the neck.
And combining this with the impact of gravity compresses the spine, the result is that muscles compensate by shortening, causing the "rounding" of the neck and upper back AND ultimately the ugly desk posture and neck hump.
The Neck Cloud™ solves this problem by using "cervical traction", a fancy way of saying "stretching the neck at the correct angle" to target the root cause of the poor posture and restore the neck's natural curvature.
Once you use the Neck Cloud™, a few things begin to happen: firstly, the deep stretch decompresses the spine and counteracts the effect of desk work...
This increases the space between each disc in the vertebrae and releases pressure on nerves running through the neck, ultimately restoring the neck's natural posture and eliminating pain.
Secondly, acupressure points that run along the surface of the device target tight muscles in the back of the neck, it's just like getting a deep tissue massage.
With consistent use over a period of two weeks, the neck's natural curve will restore, that ugly neck hump will be gone and you will experience pain relief.
