neck pain

Hi All,

just wanna vent my shoulder and neck are in pain again. head feels so heavy tt my neck cannot support. the muscle along e right side of my neck through shoulder is so tense tt i feel nauseous. i kept rotating my neck to relieve the tension. so many cracking sound. is it time for my next dental visit? if i m not wrong, it has been awhile since i felt like tt.
i cannot lift heavy weights esp overhead. the strain is too much.

Re: neck pain

My experience with neck pain, shoulder pain, and symptoms similar to yours sent me to physical therapy. I went through several physical therapists before I finally found help from a chiropractor who only does soft tissue work, specializing in deactivating trigger points and breaking up scar tissue and adhesions in the fascia and muscles. I am finally getting help. The skill of the provider is the key. It might be a physical therapist, a physiatrist, a soft tissue chiropractor (hard to find), or a massage therapist. Best of luck.

Re: neck pain

No, I don't have trouble pronouncing words. Is this something new for you? Regular manipulation chiropractic does not work for muscle problems. Look for someone who works with soft tissue and knows how to deactivate trigger points and break up adhesions and scar tissue. It isn't easy to find the right therapist. The best therapists are trained in A.R.T. (active release techniques) or myofascial release technique.
