Neck Pain Relief
Treatment for Neck Pain
Causes of Kink in Neck
Do you suffer from neck pain? Unfortunately, stress takes a toll on all of our lives. This causes muscles to become tense. People who are stressed have a tendency to shrug their neck and shoulders unconsciously, leading to neck muscle tension. The next day these people often wake up with a pain of a kink in their neck area, and experience pains when the head is turned to the right or left side. However, the main cause isn’t stress. There are a variety of other reasons why a person could suffer from a kink in their neck such as arthritis problems, spasms, poor sleeping position, etc.
It is recommended to avoid sleeping in sitting positions since this can lead to a kinked neck. All of the stressed ligaments in the cervical spine work to get into their proper position while you’re sleeping, and the torn fibers begin to heal. Inflammation occurs around the ligament during this process while the nerves and vertebrae are being pulled. The ligament then begins to heat up to increase the healing process. This can cause twitching and pull in the side of the neck.
If you wake with a kink in your neck, your mattress could be too soft, or you may be sleeping in an awkward position. Inadequate body positioning often results in a kinked neck, or other muscle aches and pains.
Stress can actually lead to increased kink chances in the neck. When we get anxious or tense, our blood circulation efficiency suffers. This can lead to muscle soreness and pain.
When an individual has a muscle spasm in their neck for any reason, the results can be painful kinking or stiffness. Applying heat to the spasming area helps alleviate inflammation, and reduce pain or soreness.
Arthritis of the neck causes pain, stiffness, or kinks in your neck. Additionally, if you’ve suddenly jerked your neck, this can lead to muscle strain. This causes neck muscles to tighten, and feel knotted.

Manipulation of the tissues through massage therapy, and reducing inflammation and tension using hot oils during Basti massage can benefit those with stiff, kinked necks. The techniques of massage and physical therapy relax the tissues, reducing painful contractions and spasms while improving range of motion. These pains and tensions include kinking in the muscle tissues.
Massage therapy improves blood circulation, delivering oxygen and vital nutrients to inflamed and problem areas when experiencing pain and soreness. This stimulates the body’s natural healing processes to areas in pain and helps individuals to recover faster. This increase in circulation improves cellular health and leads to the efficient removal of waste, and increases absorption of fluid while reducing swelling of soft tissues. Through this process, our physical therapist can help alleviate patient pain and induce systematic recovery while helping the afflicted muscle relax.
