Worried your neck or shoulder pain will never get better?

Why does Neck and Shoulder Pain go on longer than it should? Well, with so much conflicting advice, so many options and everyone more than happy and willing to put their 2 pence into how to fix Neck and Shoulder Pain, it’s really easy to get confused about the best way forward.

You see, the Neck and Shoulder area is a really complicated part of the body. Sometimes the shoulder pain is coming from the neck. Equally sometimes the neck pain is coming from the shoulder… The area that hurts in your body is not always the part that is injured… Confusing right!
So, you might have been rubbing a cream or gel on an area which isn’t even injured… For months! So, there’s no wonder you never got any relief…

If you don’t know what you’re doing with Neck and Shoulder Pain then it can persist for years and sadly instead of the underlying problem being fixed, people learn to accept it and live with it as “part of life” or put it down to “their age”. Woefully this means they accept giving up on the activities they love such as lifting children/grandchildren, driving, or hobbies like golf and tennis. 

It's NOT “Just Your Age” and Something CAN be Done!

Another scenario that we see in our Physio clinic is when people get Neck and Shoulder Pain advice from medical professionals and are told to “rest”, “take painkillers” and “see how it goes”. But this is rarely the best advice, and 6 weeks later they end up back with the same medical professional with worse Neck and Shoulder Pain and are often prescribed stronger painkillers and MORE rest. Which is madness, as neither the rest or the pills are going to mobilise potentially stiff, stuck or weakened joints – which are likely to be the true root cause of the problem…
