Neck and shoulder pain

  1. 1. Neck and Shoulder Pain Besides bones and muscles, the area around your neck and shoulders contains many ligaments, nerves, veins and other supporting structures. A pain in the neck and shoulder can be quite discomforting, but knowing about the causes, symptoms and treatments can help you greatly.
  2. 2. What causes Pain in the Neck and Shoulders? Causes of pain in the neck and shoulder area can be serious, such as heart attack. But most times, pain is caused by a mild problem. In general, the following can result in pain in the area: • Injury in the neck and shoulder area • Any spinal problem, such as degenerative spine discs • Shoulder blade or collarbone fracture • Overexertion • Frozen Shoulder • Pinched nerves • Whiplash caused by a sudden jerk or movement Muscles surrounding the head and upper neck
  3. 3. What are the Signs and Symptoms that I should look out for? Pain in the area is the most obvious and hard-to-ignore symptom of this condition. Besides pain, you may also experience swelling, bruising, redness or numbness depending on the severity of the problem. In the case of pinched nerves, you may even feel coolness on your arm or hand because enough blood id not reaching that area.
  4. 4. What are some Treatment Options for Neck and Shoulder Pain? In case of all severities of neck and shoulder pain, it is important to restore structural balance to the spine and body in order to relieve muscular and nerve pressure which is done safely and painlessly using the Atlas Orthogonal (AO) procedure. Our doctors also use various other methods, in combination with AO, to provide better relief. These include: • Resting and not overexerting the affected area • Moist heat or ice pack application • Exercise • Elevating the affected area – for example with the help of a pillow – to ease swelling
  5. 5. Due to any injury or trauma to the neck and shoulder region, the atlas bone of your spine may get dislocated, putting biomechanical, structural, and neurological pressure on your entire body, causing persistent pain. With the help of special percussion instruments, the procedure involves gently moving the atlas bone back to its original position. As the pressure on your nerves is relieved and body-balance restored, your pain and discomfort disappears. For long-term wellness, you’ll be prescribed a recovery exercise plan and receive education on lifestyle and prevention techniques along with your treatment plan.
