When dreaming of decapitation, you should self-examine the cervical spine

In the process of suggesting illness, dreams have an interesting phenomenon, that is, when something is wrong with the body, it will turn around and tell us.

The director of a software company confided in me that he was troubled by the dreams he often had: he dreamed that he had unknowingly returned to ancient times, but he was inexplicably tied to the table of the execution ground with a sign of death row prisoner stuck around his neck, and the head of the person was shaking all around him, so depressed that he could barely breathe. At this moment, the executioner held the ghost-headed knife with a glittering cold light, and when he slashed down, blood splattered, and his head and body were cut in two, but his body was still straight. At this time, I woke up from a dream in a cold sweat.

When such a scene appears in a dream, this is a hint of kindness in our cervical spine. Don’t worry, relax your whole body completely, move your head slowly, and see if there are any signs of restricted head movement, which mainly refers to the random movement of the head back and forth, left and right, up and down, rotation and other restrictions. If you feel stiff and uncomfortable in your head or neck, then this stiffness and discomfort may come from cervical spondylosis.

Small cervical vertebrae, large burden

Our cervical spine is made up of seven small bones, which are the most flexible bones in the spine and allow our skull to rotate from front to back, from side to side, but it is also the most active and heavy-bearing bone.

In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of young people with neck pain, shoulder pain, and low back pain as their main symptoms. In the past, cervical spine and lumbar spondylosis, which only middle-aged and elderly people suffered, became “popular” among young people, especially white-collar workers who worked at desks for a long time, such as writers, online editors, teachers, graphic designers, IT practitioners, securities workers, etc., as well as teenagers who were addicted to online games.

White-collar workers often work at their desks for a long time, and poor posture will cause the entire spine to be in an uncomfortable state, which is explained by professional medicine as a non-physiological and uncoordinated bending and deformation state. The ligaments and muscles of the entire spine are abnormally loaded on the entire body. If you do not pay attention to the activities of the neck and waist, it is easy to cause deformation of the cervical spine and lumbar spine over time; Because the computer screen is not in the head-up position, the human body twists the neck or even the waist in one direction for a long time during work, which is easy to cause the dislocation of the facet joints; Prolonged prolonged head stretching will also lead to cervical stiffness and dizziness, headache, limb numbness, nausea and vomiting, etc., and in severe cases, it will also lead to intervertebral disc herniation, compression of spinal cord nerves, numbness, pain, weakness, and even paralysis of limbs, which is by no means alarmist.

Protracted treatment of cervical spondylosis

Cervical spondylosis is difficult to treat and difficult to treat, easy to say, we must first be prepared to fight a protracted battle:

Patients with mild cervical spondylosis in the early stage can be relieved by massage. Relax your whole body, use the thumbs of both palms to slide up and down and massage the neck 20~40 times, the strength is from light to heavy, and then press the Feng Chi points on both sides for a few minutes. Stand up slowly, pinch the muscles at the back of the neck with both hands, and repeat it 6~10 times, which can effectively relieve the pain, stiffness and discomfort of the cervical spine. It is important to remember that the most important thing in the treatment of joint disease is to persevere, and you must not fish for three days and dry your nets for two days.

Herbal hot compress. Cervical spine discomfort can also be treated with traditional Chinese medicine hot compress, which is simple and convenient. Wrap mulberry branches and safflower with a hot towel or water bag and apply it to the painful position of the cervical spine once a day for 20 minutes each time. The only contraindication is that patients with trauma should never apply warm compresses.

Learn to “protect yourself”

Treatment is only to relieve pain, and “preservation” in daily life is the root of relieving pain.

Maintain a correct sleeping position. Do you still remember that there is an idiom called “Nan Ke a dream”? A scholar went to Beijing to take the exam, stayed at an inn, and the host gave him a blue porcelain pillow and then went to cook yellow rice. He fell asleep with a pillow in his arms, and dreamed that he had won the top prize, married a young lady from Xiangguo, and became a magistrate. Later, he gradually promoted, became the * of a dynasty, the protégé of the old officials all over the world, his five sons all married the princess, the power of the government and the opposition, at this time, the new emperor ascended the throne, someone sued their family for rebellion, he was beheaded to show the public, a knife down, woke up from the dream, the master’s yellow rice is not yet cooked!
