Chronic pain in the neck and shoulders will worsen as the weather warms up Gradually relieved, but although the weather in summer is hot, it is still the season of high incidence of cervical spondylosis. Why?

An important reason is that the wide application of air conditioners and the exposed neck and shoulders lead to cold shoulders and necks. In summer, in the office, the temperature of the air conditioner is generally very low, and the body is very comfortable in the air-conditioned room, but it is too cold for the bare neck and shoulders, which can easily lead to stagnation of cold blood, muscle spasm, and pain. Especially women whose seats are facing the air conditioner or who wear slings, the muscles of the nape of the neck are easily affected by cold, which can induce cervical spondylosis. In addition, sleepiness at noon, poor posture during lunch break, and preference for cold showers in summer can easily lead to cervical spondylosis.

In the air-conditioned office, it is best to wear a jacket outside to avoid neck cold and cause or aggravate cervical spondylosis, and you can also wear a soft silk scarf. Especially for people with sub-healthy spine who have repeated neck and shoulder pain, keeping warm is an important part of preventing the aggravation of pain. Especially in summer, they need to keep their cervical spine warm.

In the hot summer, in addition to the daily health care for the cervical spine, we can also perform moxibustion or three-fu sticking. The cold and evil qi in the body were uprooted.
