Re: Tight neck and shoulder muscles causing dizziness
Amica, I suffer from the tight upper back, neck, shoulders spasms, pain etc. I have a t7-8 herniation and that causes agony, especially now since my L4-5 fusion because I am using legs and upper back more to save my low back while healing. I get dizzy sometimes, it's usually after I have had a headache for a few days from my upper back spazin and pain.
There are stretches you can do for the upper back and neck. I do them all the time, it's head sideways to shoulder both sides, and to chest. Look up online upper back exercises, there a few good websites, don't have them handy now. Also have a microwave heat pad I put around my neck when tight and hurting. Sometimes a few rounds of heat helps loosen up those muscles.
Hope you get some relief, hugs Blossom
