The Neck Pain Checklist Take a look at this checklist. If you tick yes to one or more of these areas, then The Neck Pain Relief System is for you!
3 COMMON CAUSES OF NECK PAIN (That are so commonly missed)
The pecs and biceps muscles can pull the shoulder forward. This forward position is very irritating to your neck.
To find out if pecs and or biceps are the cause of your neck pain, then try the stretch in this video. If you feel a stretch in your arms or your chest, then you can tick this as one cause of your neck pain.
Note: There is also a very important chest-muscle called serratus anterior (know as the boxer’s muscle). It can irritate the neck a lot. You need an osteopath to treat this particular muscle, if your pain persists.
The deep muscles at the front of the neck have a very important job. They stabilize you neck. This leaves the big muscles at the side and back of your neck free to do the job of moving your neck.
If the deep neck muscles become weak, or lazy, then the poor big muscles get confused. How can they stabilize and move at the same time? They cant! So they hurt.
Check out this video on “neck sit ups”. You should be able to do 12 easily. If you struggle, then this is one cause of your neck pain. Do this exercise to get improvement.
Note: There are small muscles called the hyoid muscles (involved in swallowing). These can cause severe pain, and need expert treatment by an osteopath. Book an appointment if your neck pain persists.
The 1st rib is much higher than most people think it is. The back of it is actually higher than your collarbone. The neck muscles (Scalene muscles) attach to the 1st rib. If that rib gets stuck, then the neck muscles hurt. It is that simple.
Look in the mirror front on. Take a deep breath in and out. Does one shoulder move up more than the other? That means that your 1st rib is stuck. So check out the “punch the ceiling exercise”. This can help to get the stuck rib moving again. However, sometimes the rib is so stuck, that it needs expert treatment from an osteopath to get it moving again. The relief is instant and long-lasting.
Other Causes of Neck Pain There are many other causes of neck pain. Most of them can be resolved quickly and easily, when an expert osteopath has diagnosed and treated the real issue. If you would like to get moving comfortably, and feeling younger again, then call 1300 696 783 or book online.
