We're Here To Assist You In Discovering Long-Lasting Solutions.

Typical Neck Conditions We Address:
Common Causes:
  1. Hindered Mechanics: Weakness and muscle imbalances lead to a restricted range of motion, while joint rigidity and muscle inflexibility compromise posture.

  2. Sudden stress or impact on the tissue results in injury.

  3. Persistent compensatory strategies involve avoiding certain muscle groups’ activity and overusing other tissues due to prior injuries or the fear of future ones.

Approach At Healing Myofascial Release:

  1. Ensure proper neck and thoracic (midback) alignment.

  2. Alleviate tension in the upper neck muscles.

  3. Enhance flexibility in the chest and neck musculature.

  4. Employ manipulation, manual joint mobilization, and manual traction to enhance joint mobility.

  5. Strengthen the muscles responsible for neck flexion and shoulder blade movement.

  6. Utilize techniques like massage, instrument-assisted mobilization, and cupping to improve tissue mobility.

  7. Implement targeted nerve exercises to alleviate nerve sensitivity (manifesting as numbness, tingling, and arm pain).

Key Points to Keep in Mind:

  1. Tissues have a natural capacity for recovery. The body has the ability to heal itself, but at times, it may get stuck in the inflammatory phase of tissue repair and may need assistance to progress toward full recovery.

  2. MRI and x-ray results often do not reliably indicate the actual source of pain. They might show tissue damage even in the absence of pain or functional limitations. Conversely, pain may be present without significant findings on imaging, often due to heightened sensitivity in the nervous tissues.

  3. Post-exercise soreness doesn’t always signal a problem. Achieving genuine strength gains requires subjecting the system to an overload that leads to minor damage. This damaged tissue then regenerates, becoming stronger and thicker than before. The soreness can serve as an indicator of whether the tissue is prepared to handle increased stress. If it’s not yet ready, training intensity should be scaled back until it is.

  4. With proper guidance, correct mechanics, and gradual tissue conditioning, it’s nearly always possible to resume previous or desired activities.
