Neck and Shoulder Pain
How To Ease Annoying, Daily, Irritating Neck and Shoulder Pain Naturally - Before It Gets Any Worse...
You can not talk about the shoulder without talking about the neck. They are so connected. And often shoulder pathologies such as Rotator Cuff Tear or bursitis and bicep tendonitis are miss diagnosed because the true source of the problem is coming from the neck or thoracic (mid) spine.
When it comes to living with Neck and Shoulder Pain, everybody we see wants to know:
“Why is this happening to me?”…
“Why am I still suffering with neck and shoulder pain after putting up with it for 6 months – sometimes more?”..
Most people think that when they get Neck or Shoulder Pain, the pain is going to go away on its own. That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, it’ll be as if it never happened… But then 6 months later you’re still living with nagging pain even worse than it was when it came on.
Does That Sound Like You?
Another scenario we see all the time in our physical therapy clinic is when people go to the Doctors, and the Doctor tells them to rest and “try these painkillers” to “see how it goes” – but then 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the same Doctor again because it hasn’t got any better, only to be sent to an orthopedic surgeon who only is able to spend 10 min with you to tell you we need to do an MRI to “see what is going on.” To then get even stronger medications and maybe even an injection. This path leads you down to having surgery.
** I am not sure how you can do an evaluation in 10 min to figure out what is going on, especially if you are not sure what you did to hurt in the first place.**
Plus, MRI’s are not reliable. You can take 100 people without any pain and 60-80% will show something such as arthritis or meniscus tears. These are pain free individuals, so what happens when you hurt? You guessed it. You may find something that is not your REAL problem!
Has That Ever Happened To You?
Maybe you are confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. Maybe you think you have a shoulder problem – but it’s actually your neck where the problem is? It’s a very confusing part of the body to work out where the problem is, and this often leads people to procrastinate and put off making a decision about what to do to help fix their Neck and Shoulder pain. Worse, many people just end up just accepting it as ‘part of life’ – as if it’s normal, as if it “has” to be that way.

“What Can You Do To Get Rid Of Neck/Shoulder Pain?”…
Well, here’s 4 things you can do:
First off, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people procrastinate for so long, thinking that the pain will ‘just go away with time’, but then 6 months down the line they’re still putting up with it, and nothing’s changed… Or it gets worse. And let me tell you neck and shoulder pain is exhausting! It can be hard to think
Next, do the RIGHT exercises – one of the best things to help you ease your neck and/or shoulder pain is to do the right series of progressed exercises – the right exercises given to you by a Physical therapist will help reduce pain, and allow you to move freely again quick – and make sure that the problems don’t come back any time soon.
Avoid sitting and sleeping in awkward positions – ever woken up with a painful neck? Or, after a long day spent sitting felt tightness in your shoulders? That’s because one of the worst things you can do that adds to neck and/or shoulder pain is sitting with bad posture, and sleeping in awkward positions. It would really help if you were given appropriate progression of exercises for better posture, alongside hands-on treatment, to get you active and healthy as quickly as possible.
