It is a deflection of the cervical spine over 40 degrees in which the neck is pushed forward, low set, or shifted to the side. A person with neck hyperlordosis often has dizziness and headaches.
Recommendations After Diagnosis
1. Correct Posture
In the case of a significant cervical bend, bring your shoulder blades closer and straighten your shoulders, stretching your neck so that your ears are in line with your shoulders. This is the correct posture for cervical hyperlordosis.
- Chest opening and shoulder turn
Stand up straight and place your hands behind your back. Bring your shoulders back as far as possible for you, and stay in this position for 20-30 seconds. Repeat the exercise three to five times.
- Bends to the shoulder
Put your hands behind your back and grab your right elbow with your left hand. Stretch your head to your right shoulder while looking up. Return to the starting position and repeat the exercises for the other hand. Repeat three to five times.
- Turns against the wall
Stand facing the wall, raise your hands to the shoulder level, and lean your hands against the wall. Keep your hands up and try to turn the body to the left, then return to the starting position and turn to the right. The exercise can be performed on a rotating gymnastic disc.
3. Exercise Therapy
If the above exercises can be performed on your own at home, the complex of exercise therapy for neck hyperlordosis is better to be selected together with a physiotherapist. Exercise therapy restores the mobility of the spine and will relieve the feeling of heaviness in the neck and shoulders.
You can find exercise therapy complexes on the internet if you are sure that you can do all the exercises correctly.
4. Massage and Manual Therapy
It is worth trying in order to correct the deflection angle, improve or normalize blood circulation in the brain, reduce pain, strengthen the neck muscles, and restore their flexibility.
Swimming allows you to engage all muscle groups, including the neck. Moreover, the load is distributed evenly over the whole body, but there is no load on the spine. If you regularly go to the pool, do exercise therapy and undergo a course of massage, the situation with cervical hyperlordosis will definitely improve.
It is more related to preventive methods. To prevent your condition from progressing, regularly consume dairy products, fish, meat, eggs, herbs, nuts, and berries.
7. Correct Arrangement of the Workplace
To avoid aggravating the problem, the table and chair should be comfortable. Your computer or laptop should be placed in such a way that the sight is directed straight, and not down or up.
8. Sleeping Place
We recommend sleeping on an orthopedic mattress on a low pillow.
