NECK & SHOULDER PAIN
DIAGNOSING AND TREATING NECK AND SHOULDER CONDITIONS IS ONE OF THE MOST COMPLEX AREAS OF CARE. WHILE THE TWO ARE SEPARATE AREAS, THEY ARE FUNCTIONALLY INTER-RELIANT. THIS MEANS WE OFTEN HAVE TO WORK IN BOTH AREAS TO PRODUCE RESULTS.
As an example, a ‘frozen shoulder’ is often a combination of muscular strain and compression on the nerve roots entering and operating the muscles of the shoulder girdle. Opening the neurological pathways can be a complex project as they can be trapped within any of the soft tissue between the neck and the shoulder. This is where muscular release techniques such as myocardial release and active release come in handy.
Restoring function to a torn or strained muscle is exceptionally difficult. However, once the appropriate inner action is restored, a strengthening process can begin, and full strength and mobility can be returned to the affected joints. With a basic introduction to the anatomy and physiology of the area, appropriate care, and some dedication to home care, you may find a complete and lasting resolution.
