Neck and Shoulder Pain
How To Use A Holistic Approach to Ease Annoying, Daily, Irritating Neck and Shoulder Pain Naturally - Before It Gets Any Worse...
When it comes to living with Neck and Shoulder Pain, everybody we see wants to know the answers to these questions:
“Why is This Happening to Me?”...
“Why am I still suffering with Neck & Shoulder pain that keeps getting worse after putting up with it for 6 months - sometimes more?”...
Most people think that when they get Neck and Shoulder Pain, it’ll eventually “ease up” and go away on it’s own. That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, Pain will be a thing of the past... But then 6 months later you’re still living with the discomfort of Neck and Shoulder pain - often even worse than it was when it came on.
Does That Sound Like You?
Another scenario we see all the time in our PT office is when people go to their Doctors, and the well-meaning Doctor tells them to “take it easy”, “try these painkillers” and “come back in 6 weeks if it’s no better” - 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 told to never lift anything overhead again, given ANOTHER prescription of even stronger pills, and offered a painful injection.
Has That Ever Happened To You?
Maybe you're confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. Maybe you think you have to rest because you’ve been told that continuing to train makes shoulder and neck pain worse. Maybe you think you have a neck problem - but it’s actually your shoulder that is the problem?
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 just accepting it as ‘part of life’ - as if it’s normal, as if it “has” to be that way.
Is This How You Feel?
If You’re Currently Living With Neck and/ or Shoulder Pain, Here’s 7 More Reasons Why It Could Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:
1. You thought it would go away on it’s own - but it didn’t
2. You went to the Doctor who told you to rest and take painkillers - but the pills did nothing to help, all they did was ‘mask’ the pain - and as soon as they wore off Neck and Shoulder Pain struck again
3. A family member, or friend, told you that everybody eventually gets Neck and Shoulder pain, so you just accepted it
4. You seeked help from other Healthcare Professionals or a PT in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help
5. You’ve tried using things like heating pads and TENS but they’ve done nothing to decrease the pain
6. You thought it would be a good idea to rest because your Neck or Shoulder pain was so bad, but it still irritates you daily
7. You decided to get a few “massages” hoping that would fix the pain, but all they did was feel nice and relaxing, and didn’t do anything to fix it long term…

“What Can I Do To Get Rid Of My Neck and
Well, here's 4 things you can do:
1. First off, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people avoid the gym and rest for weeks, hoping 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 the pain gets worse
2. Next, do the RIGHT exercises - one of the best things to help you ease your Neck and Shoulder pain is to do the right series of progressed exercises - the right exercises given to you by a PT 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.
3. Avoid sitting and sleeping in awkward positions - ever woken up with a painful neck? Maybe you felt a twinge and stiffened up after a workout? 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 strengthening exercises for better posture, alongside hands-on treatment, to get you active and healthy as quickly as possible.
4. Get real, “hands-on” Physical Therapy - PT is proven to help people with Neck and Shoulder pain. In fact at Mindful Movement Performance Physical Therapy it’s one of the most common issues we see in people who weight lift as part of their training routine. If your Neck and Shoulder pain is affecting your job, if it stops you from keeping active, or if it threatens your independence and gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends - Physical Therapy can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.
