Neck Pain

 

In Chinese medicine, your stiff neck is a classic case of stagnation. This simply means that the tightness in your upper back and neck create a slowdown in the circulation of blood and energy in the area. In addition, as your neck becomes tight and painful, the pain can move upward causing headaches, tooth grinding, and jaw pain; or it can move downward and cause back pain and tightness.
The antidote to neck pain in Chinese medicine is acupuncture, which works in two ways. It can help relieve the pain and tightness in your neck by increasing the circulation of blood and energy, and it can also help to relieve stress.
