Neck & Shoulder Pain
Treatments for neck and shoulder pain
A stiff neck is typically characterized by soreness and difficulty moving the neck, especially when trying to turn the head to the side. It may also be accompanied by a headache, neck pain, shoulder pain and/or arm pain. In order to look sideways or over the shoulder, an individual may need to turn the entire body instead of the stiff neck.
Most people are familiar with the pain and inconvenience of a stiff neck. It may appear upon waking up one morning or perhaps develop later in the day after strenuous activity. Some of the most common causes are related to prolonged periods of postural stress from occupations. Poor positions for desks, screens and keyboards and modern devices such as tablets and mobile phones also place a great demand on the neck and shoulder area.
Massage Therapy offers a number of treatments for persistent neck and shoulder. Using combinations of hydrotherapy, fascial release, triggerpoint therapy, deep tissue massage and myoskeletal alignment techniques in a single treatment session can be a highly effective solution to the problem.
Neck and Shoulder treatments require a First Consultation to record medical history and carry out assessments.
