The Hidden Source of Your Neck and Shoulder Pain

The Hidden Source of Your Neck and Shoulder Pain

Can You Rewrite Your Story About Fear?
Have You Sneezed Yet?
Can Our Lifestyle Affect Our Risk of Depression?

Almost everyone has experienced neck or shoulder pain at some point. This type of pain isn’t just a minor inconvenience; it’s a problem that can make getting through the day a challenge. Driving becomes a test of endurance, working at your desk feels like a marathon, and even sleeping can be a battle when you have neck or shoulder pain.

This type of pain often has a hidden source: the pectoral muscles. The pectoral muscle is a large muscle covering the chest and ribcage. Its main function is to provide range of motion to the arms and raise and lower the shoulders. 

When the pectorals become contracted, they can cause neck or shoulder pain and affect the trapezoid, upper back, arms, elbows, and even hands – sometimes causing numbness or tingling through to the fingers.

Our modern lifestyle, including the regular use of computers and cell phones, exacerbates the issue. Looking down while sitting is an unnatural posture. Having our arms in front of our body for prolonged periods, such as driving, leads to contracted pectorals and imbalance in the body’s structure.

The Problem with Poor Posture
These forward movements, without much involvement of the back muscles, lead to poor posture and weak muscles. With our arms in a sustained position in front of the body, our pectoral muscles begin to shorten. This eventually pulls our shoulders into a rounded position, which in turn causes the head to come forward. This poor posture then strains the muscles of the upper back and neck, causing tension and weakness.

When muscles become contracted, they create stress and pressure on the joints, nerves, and the spine. In the case of the pectoral muscle group, symptoms may include pain in the shoulders, neck, upper spine, tingling in the arms, restriction of movement, and stiffness in these areas.

Muscles start off long and pliable, able to move freely and allow us a full range of motion. As we engage in repetitive motion or certain postures, our muscles start to contract. Contracted muscles are not only shortened but also lose their flexibility and range of motion.

Large muscles in the body are difficult to relax once contracted. It takes pressure to soften these muscles, but generally, manual massage cannot apply enough sustained pressure on the muscle for a long enough time to release the pectoral muscle, nor can stretching. If we can’t lengthen these muscles, we cannot correct the posture causing the strain.

Naples Robotic Pain Relief
The human hand just cannot access these muscles effectively with consistent, controlled pressure. That is where robotic muscle therapy has the advantage. Using a robotic arm to apply precise, consistent pressure and vibration, the contraction of the muscle can be released. As the contracted muscle relaxes, muscle tissue can actually lengthen back to its usual state. When this happens, the underlying problem is alleviated, posture realigns, and pain is resolved.

The benefits of this therapy cannot be overstated. Many people try this technology after all else has failed. This technology is achieving amazing results, returning people to a life that, in some cases, they thought was unattainable.

This specialized technology is currently only available in a handful of clinics. Although it was developed in Sarasota about twenty-five years ago, it has recently returned to SWFL as Naples Robotic Pain Relief.
