I am sure you have heard of the MyPillow Pillow. Yep probably on late night tv or one of the financial tv stations. Well just in the last month of October, Mypillow reached a 1 million dollar settlement after lawyers accused the pillow company of false advertising.
Brushing your teeth, taking a shower, making the bed, making breakfast- all of these tasks are excruciating...and then driving to work. This happens to me once in a while so i decided to write a lens on how to treat a stiff neck without popping pain medications. This squidoo lens shows you how and gives you some great at-home things you can yourself.
Have you ever awoken up with pain on the one side of the neck? Maybe you had tingling into your fingers. Or Numbness into your arm? Are you tossing and turning all night because your pillow loses shape and does not give your neck the support that it needs?
Have you ever been diagnosed with "military neck"? It basically means that your neck curve is straight and not the proper c curve that it should be. It is also known as loss of cervical lordosis or having a hypolordotic curve in the neck spine (loss of the cervical curve, the spine may not be completely straight but there is a loss of curve there.
Let me start off by describing what correct neck alignment is. Ideal alignment is having your neck straight up and down when looking at your posture from the front or back. When looking from the side you should have a smoothing flowing C-curvature. This squidoo lens will showcase for you what a normal and abnormal neck curve look like on x-ray.
