She was too excited and couldn't help herself jumping from the bed when Germany scored a splendid goal. At the end of the game, Miss Liu found her whole neck could not move, she thought that it may be a light twist neck pain and didn't worry about it. The next day, she couldn't bear the pain and went to hospital to check. It was found not a simple twist to the neck, but the atlanto-axial subluxation, which in serious situations can cause paralysis.
Doctor Sun, who is a main doctor of Department of orthopedics and traumatology of TCM Hospital of Nanjing City, said recently, the patients of neck pain are increasing, mainly because of fatigue, cold, improper exercise, massage, long-term bad posture (lying on the bed to watch TV, bow head down to play mobile phone), etc. In Miss Liu's case lying in bed and watching TV is a common cause of this kind of problem.
The expert reminds, if your shoulder and neck feel uncomfortable, first of all, stop doing the current activity, secondly keep your neck warm, especially in summer, don’t use air-conditioning to blow on your neck directly.
