Left side neck stiffness and pain

I want to discuss the left side neck stiffness and pain at this time. I hope those who suffer from neck pain can be beneficial to read it.

The digestive system is the key to left-side neck stiffness and pain!

left side neck stiffness and pain

Bad posture, herniated disk, spinal stenosis, injury, and muscle tension from stress also can be causes of neck pain.

But, these factors are not the only ways you get stiffness and pain in your neck.

What is the Autonomic Nervous System?

The autonomic nervous system is associated with two different nerves: the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves.

When you are stressed out, the sympathetic nerves are dominant.  When you are relaxed, the parasympathetic nerves are dominant.

One of the vagus nerve’s relaxed nerves is attached to internal organs like the stomach, heart, lung, and neck.

When you stimulate too much of the vagus nerve, you will get stomach upset, raise the heartbeats, sometimes have difficulty swallowing, and lead to neck stiffness.

It is the mechanism of the digestive system and neck.

Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective about the neck stiffness and pain

From a traditional Chinese medicine standpoint, the digestive system and neck are highly related to each other.

The right side of the neck is associated with the Liver organ related to stress, called Liver Qi Stagnation.

The other possible symptoms of Liver disorders are irritability, anxiety, rib pain, menstrual disorders like cramping, irregular periods, etc.

On the other hand, the left side of the neck is Spleen and Stomach, which are the digestion systems because the stomach meridian originates from the eyes and goes through the head and the digestive systems.

So when you have bloating or gas or even constipation or diarrhea, it affects your neck, especially on the left side, and tightness of the neck.

The other symptoms of Spleen and stomach disorders are bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea like any digestive symptoms.

Right Neck – Liver side
Left Neck – Spleen / Stomach side

What can you do for left-side neck stiffness and pain?

Heat makes the blood flow and releases the tension on your neck. In addition, you can also put it to your stomach.

Once the stomach relaxes, your neck tension also releases.

2. Watch out for your diet.

Any food that gives you bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea is unsuitable for your digestion.

Would you please eat balanced nutrition, including carbohydrates, vegetables, and protein with vitamins and minerals? Refrain from the spicy, greasy food. Avoid dairy products if it makes you bloated or gas.
