Today Libertyville chiropractor Dr Steve Segal reveals his Thursday Tips.
How to help anyone with neck pain or muscle tension headaches.

Even though you may not be a chiropractor, today’s tips will help you change the world of any loved one or friend.

You have amazing power in your finger tips and hands.

Find someone, have them lie on their back, face up.
With your finger tips start in the back of their heads, follow the back of their head down towards the neck until you get to where the muscle of the neck and bone of your skull…meet.

Put about 5 pounds of pressure straight up towards the ceiling, into where the muscles of the head and neck meet.

Hold It, some will enjoy it if you gently lean back, thereby tractioning the region.

This spot works great for muscle tension headaches, neck pain, some even find relief from jaw pain.

Hold it for 1-3 minutes, rest your hands on the surface so they don’t fatigue.

The heel of your hand, by your pinky finger, work great when someone is on their stomach and you work the muscles like you are kneading dough on either of the spine.

On the thumb side, the “meaty” part of your thumb works the muscles well when people are face down and you work out the knots in the upper trapezius that are there from head forward posture, as in looking at you cell phone, computer.

Like anything else the more you practice the better you get at it.
For more information Dr Segal can be call or texted at 847-778-3627

It’s Wisdom Wednesday.
After 28 years of full time practice…here’s what you need to know.

“Motion Is The Potion And The Lotion”                                                                       And You Can’t Move… Until You Move.

Above are a couple of my Segal-isms

Each and every day …stand tall, walk, move your arms and legs equally. Get some rhythm in your walk. Get a great gait

Find where you are tight, loosen it up… use a tennis ball, foam roller or loved one with kind, yet firm hands.

Work on strengthening. Weight, rubber bands, kettle bells, body weight exercises.

You’re either working out or you’ll eventually you’ll be in therapy doing the same or similar exercises you need to do to feel the way you want to feel.

Here’s a one minute video   https://youtu.be/d5rAMYbPVLQ

Dr. Segal shares neck pain treatment home remedies.

Tips you can do right now to help relieve your neck, shoulder, even muscle tension headaches.

Neck pain without trauma is from posture over time.

Head forward posture over time. Looking at your cell phone, computer, food, etc.

Those are examples of head forward posture.

First you need to sit tall. When you sit tall, your head automatically comes back over your shoulders.When you slouch your head goes forward, putting more weight on you shoulders. For every inch your head moves forward of your mid-line it doubles the weight of your head on your shoulders.

Next, is Neck retraction, that’s when you push your head straight back into your headrest.

Third, Shoulder retraction is when you squeeze your shoulder blades together.

The final activity is raising both of your your shoulders up towards your ears, hold it for a couple of seconds, relax.

Repeat the activities multiple times throughout your day, anytime you’re sitting you can practice these neck pain relief home remedies.

Recently I was asked…

“Doc Segal, as a Chiropractor… what is the #1 mistake people make with neck pain who have no trauma ?”

Simple, LOOKING Down…

Staring at our computers, cell phones, televisions, game console, work areas…our head forward posture is responsible for of much of your neck and shoulder pain, along with muscle tension headaches.

Check this out…for every inch your head is forward of your midline…it double the weight of your head on your shoulders, over time…it adds up physically in terms of muscle tension headaches, neck pain…

You’ve seen often older people when viewing them from the side, their heads stick out far in front of their bodies.

I always say… “motion is the potion and the lotion”, because as you move typically you feel better, it’s therapeutic.

Now, I’m talking about neck pain NOT associated with any trauma, like sports injuries, auto accidents or work injuries, those need to be evaluated and treated by a professional, that’s an entirely different discussion.

I’m talking about my neck pain associated with stress, headaches, I slept funny or I slept wrong…

Check out this brief video I made, it explains it all.

 

Tomorrow I’ll show you 3 simple things you can do while sitting to help with your neck pain.

Reading the latest research touting the benefits of Spinal manipulation for acute low back pain, sub acute low back pain, AND chronic pow back pain- for assistance in pain relief, increased motion and function in everyday life.

I was inspired when I was leaving the Temple of Sunday, there was a gi-normous pile of lunch bag size potato chips.

Some people saw lunch, I saw video.

So I shot this video and now I’m sharing the research too.
