Suffering from neck pain or pain across shoulder blades or have difficulty turning your neck to left or right occasionally or do you sometimes experience pain down the arm into your hands with a sensation of “pins & needles” into your fingers?
If you have answered Yes to any of the above questions, there is a good chance you can benefit from a mechanical assessment. If your neck pain is from postural stresses, some very simple, specific exercises can be your solution to eliminate pain & prevent future episodes.
Shoulder problems are often referred to in different ways, including tendonitis, rotator cuff strain or tear, impingement syndrome, frozen shoulder, capsulitis or arthritis.
Similarly, knee injuries are commonly diagnosed as arthritis or meniscal tears based on your X-rays or MRI findings. While the degenerative changes are present, these findings may not be the cause of your pain.
If you have periods during the day when you are completely pain free along with times when you have pain, that is usually a sign that your symptoms are mechanical & invasive treatments may not be necessary. Seeking a comprehensive examination and evaluation by a certified/diplomate MDT provider as your first step is essential to identify the source of your symptoms.
