Torticollis is the same as a stiff neck

Stiff neck

Published on Locomotor system.

The neck supports the head and is the link between the head and the torso. It corresponds to the passage of concepts, ideas, wishes and will (all coming from the brain) to practical action (action, fulfilment, expression, relation). The neck is a passage. Not yet the action itself. The neck precedes the action. The neck represents flexibility and the capacity to look around and back.

Problems affecting the neck may occur in the muscle (kink), in the bone (Cervical vertebrae) or in the skin.

The back of the neck is the nape, and it is its most yang side. This is the area where kinks normally occur. They could be muscular contractions or problems in the cervical vertebrae.

A kink indicates that the person is too yang, very confrontational, too much of a fighter, even stubborn. A kink shows that the person is feeling undervalued about himself, from an intellectual perspective. He feels challenged by someone. He feels angry or discomfort (People who store up anger have chronic tension on their shoulders, neck and arms).

Kinks force people to become more yin. They force people to be passive. The person wishes to turn his head to face up to the other person, but cannot do it because it is painful. The person was forced to repress his aggressiveness. The person is prevented from looking to the other person in the eyes. His own body will not allow him to go to war.
