Neck, shoulder pain and headache are VERY serious and it is true that they often go hand in hand. The presence of one, often signals the arrival of the other in the not too distant future.

If You Are Worried About What Is Causing Your Pain, Or You Just Feel Let Down By A GP That Wasn’t Able To Offer A Proper NATURAL Solution…One That Didn’t Involve Harmful Painkillers, Then I’m Here To Help….

I’ve been doing this for more than 10 years and if you’re suffering with neck and shoulder pain… one of my goals is to offer you a solution that will let you avoid the need for harmful medication and I want you to be able to completely evade the frustration that option, so often causes.

Your suffering is going to end fast. I know exactly what causes this type of pain because I see it EVERY DAY…and despite an often lack of visible signs of damage or injury, that may be a source of confusion, I know what you’re suffering from is real and it is painful and that it should NOT be ignored. More importantly, that there is HOPE for a future that doesn’t involve you being woken up through the night by your nagging neck pain or the unwanted tension in your neck, interrupting your good quality of life.

Chronic neck pain and headaches afflicts numerous individuals and if they are experienced at the same time, are likely related and could benefit from similar treatment strategies.

In most cases the cause of the symptoms can be from multiple sources to include spinal joint function, nerve referred pain, muscle and soft-tissue tension dysfunction.

Starting today you do not have to live with the pain with no hope in sight. Here are 3 simple steps to move you towards a pain-free and happier you!

  1. Posture: Your mother was right to correct your posture during your youth. Due to constant use of lop top computers, phone with slouched head and upper body alignment is a common faulty posture that can lead to over tired muscles and pain patterns. The weight of our head is similar to an 8-10 pound bowling ball. If this bowling ball (your head) is sitting in front of your shoulders and body all the muscles and joints of the neck will be under aware of your posture and learn how to correct it! Maintaining poor postures can place increased load to prevent that bowling ball from falling further forward, thus explaining the aches and pain you are experiencing in these postures.
  2. Use of ice or heat to ease the pain. If you seek to minimize medication solutions for your pain, consider ice or heat use. TIP: Ice is useful with more intense or acute pain patterns, when a new onset neck pain has just occurred (the first 24-48 hours). If you are dealing with usual, chronic neck pain and headaches heat to the neck is appropriate. In either case ice or heat may be applied to the neck region for 10-15 minute durations to ease the pain severity and/or general tension present.
  3. Consider seeing a Specialist Physical Therapist (PT) to abolish your pain and stiffness! If you have a neck pain condition that has not improved after 2 weeks or it substantially affects your function, it may be time to seek professional help.

TIP: A Physical Therapist with specialty training in orthopedics can help rapidly improve your ability to perform normal functional activities and substantially reduce or abolish your pain patterns. Receiving care under a skilled PT using manual therapy to ease joint, muscle and soft-tissue pains, in combination with corrective exercises can help break the pain cycle you are stuck in and teach you strategies to become a self-healer.
