How to determine the correct neck curve?
So, how can you know if your neck curve is right or not? And if not, then what should you do about it. You can simply determine it at your home. For this, you can take a wall test, which means you need to stand straight against a straight wall.
Ensure that your feet are nearly 6 inches away from the wall and your torso and head is directly against it. After this, you need to look at the amount of empty space that is between your neck and the wall. If this space is more than 2 inches, then you have a misaligned neck curve that requires some work.
In order to check the amount of space between your neck and the wall, you can take the help of one of your friends or use a mirror. The former way is a better method to determine space, as your friend can give you more accurate results by using a measuring device like a ruler.
How to restore the neck curve?
As we already told you above, exercise is important for your overall health. Plus, it is also helpful in restoring your neck curve in the right position. You can perform exercises that specifically strengthen the muscles of the shoulders, upper back, as well as the neck. This way you can bring your crooked neck curve back into place.
Ensure that you regularly perform your exercises and do not miss them even a single day. Then only, they will be effective. Otherwise, it’s no point doing them. It should be a continuous effort over a long period of time.
Plus, you should not stop exercising even when you have restored your neck curve back into the right position. You must continue exercising in order to maintain the tone and strength of the muscles even after they are built.
Other than this, you can use a comfortable pillow for sleeping, which particularly supports the neck and its original curve. A pillow that supports your back in the right way also helps to keep the overall spine in the right alignment.
People who work on computers for long periods must ensure that they adjust their computer in the right way, so that the upper three-fourth of the computer screen is even with the level of your eyes. Moreover, you must sit atleast 18 to 24 inches away from the computer screen. Plus, do not forget to take breaks in between your work. It can even be for just one minute, but you must take breaks. This will relax your neck muscles.
