It often happens that after a quarrel or an argument, my neck starts to hurt. I suspect that the cervical spine is indeed responsive to conflict. How can the diseases of this department be explained from the point of view of psychosomatics?
You have already noticed that the health of the cervical spine can be disrupted when entering into disputes and quarrels. But conflict is far from the only thing that leads to diseases of this part of the spine.
To deal with this, let’s first think: what are we using the neck for? With its help, we turn our heads so that we can see what is happening around us.
That is, the neck allows us to see the surrounding reality from all angles and from all sides.
If you argue with someone, considering your opinion to be the only correct one, then you give up this ability, do not want to consider situations from different points of view, show stubbornness.
Then the pain that you talk about in your letter appears. You may also feel “stiffness” and stiffness of the muscles, other symptoms of cervical osteochondrosis and other diseases.
Consider: Why are these symptoms common in older people? The fact is that they “harden” in their beliefs and habits, become inflexible. Then the upper spine also loses flexibility, which is why health problems begin.
What should you do to get well?
1. Understand that stubbornness and stubbornness are two different things. You can be persistent and thus achieve good results, for example, at work. But if your principles, habits and stereotypes get in your way, you should abandon them.
2. Learn to be flexible in dealing with other people, then your neck will be flexible and healthy. Develop the ability to give in and respect others’ opinions. Analyze different points of view on the same situations. Even if you want to criticize a judgment, start with what you agree with. And only then mention what you cannot agree with.
3. Repeat the following affirmations:
“I am discovering flexibility and the ability to look at life from different points of view. I treat other people with respect and listen to their opinions. If necessary, I can concede and abandon my principles. “
Speak these statements in your spare moments. It is good if you repeat them during other healing activities, such as exercises and neck massage.
Watch your emotions and health!
