Big picture healing for long-term neck and shoulder comfort
If you have ever suffered from neck and shoulder pain (the two commonly go hand in hand) you will know how uncomfortable and debilitating it can be.
Often the result of poor posture, arthritis, scoliosis or an injury, neck and shoulder pain doesn’t discriminate in terms of age or gender. It commonly affects people of all ages, including children, and is also sometimes linked with thoracic or middle back pain and headache.
Given the increasing prevalence of smartphones, ipads and computers in our lives, people of all ages today are spending more time being sedentary and looking at their screens. Is it any wonder this causes undue strain and stress to our thoracic spine and neck regions?
Common symptoms of neck and shoulder pain include:
A general feeling of stiffness
Muscle pain and tension
A feeling of being hunched over
Some people even describe feeling as though their head is too heavy for their neck to hold up comfortably.
Don’t put up with shoulder/neck pain and discomfort any longer. Call us to make an appointment today.
