Neck & Shoulder Pain
How to Ease Irritating and Annoying Neck and Shoulder Tension the Natural Way
When it comes to neck pain or neck and shoulder pain, the big Questions we get asked is
‘Why is This Happening to Me? - We also regularly see people who have come because they felt it was ‘spreading to their shoulders’ or spreading from their shoulders to their neck! Many people don’t realise that this nagging pain or tension felt in either shoulder or the neck are absolutely connected. Have you ever had a massage which eased your neck tension but you felt your shoulders afterwards? I like to akin the shoulder and neck to 2 cousins in a playground! You don’t have 1 up to mischief without the other having some involvement!! Imagine what they get up to when left to their own devises, let alone after a time!! Your neck and shoulders are the same.
People also want to know why is it coming and going? Painkillers help sometimes but not others - why? Why can I get some relief from heat but can’t from anything else? Why does neck stretches NOT work!!
Does this sound Familiar to what’s happened to You?
Unfortunately, in today’s world, we have an abundance of information BUT its unfortunately too easy to get confused. Add to the fact that you will have been told different things, by different people. Unfortunately, not all of it is either TRUE or HELPFUL. It’s confusing to find the root cause of your neck and shoulder pain. To give this the attention it deserves, merely focusing on the sore area, does NOT work!!
Many patients who suffered from Chronic Neck and Shoulder Pain are tormented with the fear of what caused it-
Maybe I shouldn’t have bent down that way that morning and it wouldn’t have ‘gone’.
I wish I hadn’t slept funny that night, I injured my shoulder a long time ago is this what it stems from?
...the list goes on.
The true reality often resides in the fact that YES you felt pain at that moment, but its highly likely that it wasn’t THAT action that got you there…it was years and years of poor posture, prolonged sitting for example on the computer or driving, that cause your muscles and joints to be under tension the pain you felt from lifting, turning sharply to look around when reversing, Picking your grandchild up…was the EFFECT from a lifetime of that….I like to refer to it as THE ACCUMULATION Factor.
If you don’t know what the right thing to do for this, and often you have tried and followed several bits of advice…. neck pain can be really confusing and frustrating. It creeps into every aspect of your life. Sadly, it often adds to those feelings of ‘hopelessness’ and ‘frustration’ making the list even longer of things that ‘just didn’t work for you’. We often see many patients who feel that they need to ‘accept and put up with their pain’ as it’s here to stay forever.
