What you need to know to maintain the health of the waist and neck in winter

Spine pain is a problem that almost everyone experiences, even once in their life. Most of the pain develops in the lower back and neck area. A muscle spasm that develops due to cold November is responsible for the pain caused by many factors. An active musculoskeletal, connective tissue and disc system are required for the spine to work, said Dr. November. Murat Hamit Aytar, a lecturer, continues: "this system distributes the load riding on the spine by dividing it into pieces. But cold air negatively affects this harmonious mechanism of the spine. November: November: the year of the bone loss, and the year of the bone loss. As a result, muscle spasm can develop November. Because the spine that has contracted due to the spasm cannot stretch enough, pain begins to occur in various parts of the spine, most often in the lower back or neck area. The severity of his weight varies from person to person; in some people it is mild, while in others it can be severe enough to severely limit his ability to move.”

Brain and Neurosurgery specialist Dr. Murat Hamit Aytar, a lecturer, listed the measures we should take to protect our waist and neck Health in cold weather: 

Be careful to dress in such a way that you can keep your body temperature at the ideal level. Wear so that your neck area, especially the waist, is not directly exposed to the cold. Therefore, avoid clothes that leave your waist exposed, do not neglect to use a scarf. And don't wear too thick, because sweating and then exposure to cold air is one of the most important problems that negatively affect the health of the spine. As is known, after sweating, our sweat dries without protection, and in addition, in a cold environment, it makes it easier to spasm and eclipse in November. Exposure to the direct effect of cold air by dressing thinly also threatens the spine. Avoid wearing thin, incompatible with weather conditions. 

Wet or damp hair can facilitate the negative effect of cold on the neck area, leading to retention of the neck. After bathing, do not go out without drying your hair thoroughly. 

Be careful not to remain draught in windy weather. Also, do not be exposed to wind from the glass in the working environment. 

Sitting is not good for our spine, especially if we are sitting in a vacancy and unstable position. For your spine health, be careful to use a pillow that supports the waist cavity while sitting at a desk and be in an upright position.
