Neck And Shoulder Pain
“Say Goodbye to Neck and Shoulder Pain - Without Taking Painkillers, Without Dangerous Surgery and Without Having to Wait to See your Doctor!”
Most episodes of neck and shoulder pain are due to muscle strain, soft tissue sprain (ligaments, tendons) or chronic stress and tension. Sudden force or movement like whiplash from a car accident or a baseball, hockey, or other sporting injuries can also cause pain in the neck and shoulder area. These types of neck and shoulder injuries often improve with time and non-surgical care, like Physiotherapy. But if NECK AND SHOULDER PAIN continues or worsens, there is usually a specific condition present that requires treatment.
Cervical degenerative disc disease, cervical herniated disc, cervical stenosis, and cervical arthritis can all cause NECK PAIN, limit your range of motion, and reduce overall physical function. With the shoulder, one of the most common causes of chronic pain is frozen shoulder – when the shoulder capsule is inflamed and stiff and “freezes” up.
We know how it feels.
Every twist or turn of your neck or raise of your arms feels sore. So you try to avoid moving at all, which causes all the muscles around the neck and shoulders to stiffen up and shorten until it turns into a vicious circle of pain, muscle spasms, immobility, and stiffness.
There is usually no apparent reason why it happens either, not that you can remember anyway. You just woke up one morning with the pain, right? And nothing seems to help. You've tried everything from expensive pillows to no pillows, rest to gentle stretching exercises and shoulder mobility exercises, but nothing is helping. And you’re beginning to think it’s never going to go away.
Don't fret. If that's you, you're not alone. We hear this type of thing all the time. NECK AND SHOULDER PAIN are one of the most common complaints we hear from patients who visit the BELLEFLEUR PHYSIOTHERAPY clinics.
And the most popular question all these patients ask is
“Why is This Happening to Me?”...
“Why Am I Still Suffering With Neck and Shoulder Pain After Putting Up With It For 6 Months (Maybe More)?”
Most patients believe that their neck and Shoulder pain is just going to go away on its own. That they'll open their eyes one morning, and the pain will have disappeared as fast as it arrived. Sadly, this is rarely true – and they've wasted six months of their life waiting for the pain to pass, but it got much worse instead.
Is This You?
Other patients tell us that they go to see their doctor, and they ask them to "take it easy," "take painkillers," and “come back and see me in 6 weeks”.
This advice isn't great, and these patients usually end up back in the doctor's waiting room in 6 weeks in even more pain than they were in before. But still, the advice is more rest and even more potent painkillers or, worse still, steroid injections. But you can't afford to take more time off work, and you're missing out on social occasions because you're in pain. It's madness. It also explains why so many people aged 45+ have chronic NECK and SHOULDER PAIN and suffer the side effects of too much pain medication.
Has This Happened to You?
So, what are some other reasons why your neck or shoulder pain is lasting longer than it should do? Well, it could be information overload – due to different theories on the source of your pain. Many people (qualified and unqualified) – especially on the internet, are more than happy to give out advice on neck and shoulder pain – but most of it isn't credible. And sometimes, it can be dangerous.
If you haven't had an obvious accident, you probably think the cause of your NECK AND SHOULDER PAIN is something you did but don't remember – like twisting to see your computer screen or sleeping in an awkward position. But the most likely cause and the cause we often see in the Bellefleur clinics is muscle weakness caused by many years of incorrect posture. The twisting, lifting or sleeping was just the final straw!
If you're not an expert in NECK AND SHOULDER PAIN, it can be confusing to determine what is wrong with your neck or shoulder. That's why many people just accept it as part of life and growing older, but it doesn't have to be like that.
