Respect your neck
Your neck is an amazing structure. Take time to appreciate its functionality and absolute necessity and you will realize how important it is to protect. The neck is the main support for your head, and it plays a vital role in supplying blood to your brain from the heart. Without proper blood flow, the brain cannot perform its essential functions including sleep, heart rate, breathing and coordination. The two carotid arteries, which supply most of the blood flow for brain functioning, are located in canals within the neck vertebrae.
Protect your neck
In order to support your movement, balance, and the pursuit of your senses, the neck is able to move in many directions. As with any fine-tuned instrument, the neck is fragile: the vertebrae are prone to misalignment and the joints can be dislocated and damaged by severe motion and trauma. Repetitive stress injuries result from a sedentary lifestyle and contribute to neck stiffness. These are reasons that blood flow can be restricted from flowing to the brain, contributing to poor nervous system functioning, lower energy levels and a decrease in well being.
