The change of seasons leads to colds, pain, and aches in the neck, back, and shoulders. In this case for you, instead of opting for the latest over-the-counter remedy, consider wearing a simple scarf. People believe that the only purpose of wearing a scarf is as a fashion accessory.
However, a scarf has several health benefits, significantly when the seasons change. Remember, a grain of prevention equals a beat of cure!
The neck is the weakest body part in the wintertime, and a large winter scarf is your first defense against the winter cold. A large multi textured yarn
winter scarf can provide warmness and protection for neck and chest area. It can cover your nose and mouth to protect your face from the cold and offer warm air for your lungs.
A thick scarf can also be advantageous during the summertime. The quick change in temperature as you move into a cold air-conditioned building through a hot summer day can weaken the immune system and root a summer cold. A light scarf worn throughout the summer can ward off the effects of exposure to a cold air-conditioned environment.
Treatment for cervical spondylosis
Cervical spondylosis, known as cervical osteoarthritis or neck arthritis is a common, age-related medical disorder affecting the discs and joints in your neck. More than 85% of people older than 60 age are affected by cervical spondylosis. A scarf can help ease the symptoms of the disease by delivering immediate warmth to the affected part. It can limit movement and provide support during moving.
Treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis
Lumbar spinal stenosis is a medical illness in which the spinal canal compresses the spinal cord and nerves. These changes are caused by the regular wear-and-tear of aging, with indicators occurring in middle-aged and older adults. High-collar clothing, including a multi textured yarn, thick scarf, can prevent cold air from migrating to your back and shoulders, which help improve this disease's symptoms.
