Pain in the neck


Do you experience several headaches a month?

Do you have a stiff neck?

Do you have poor range of motion turning your head side to side?

You could literally have a pain in the neck. Many of the issues described above stem from one particular muscle in the neck called Levator Scapulae. This muscle attaches from the shoulder blade to the first 4 vertebrae of the neck. It allows us to turn our heads from side to side and helps to elevate our shoulders. And 9 times out of 10 when people are describing feeling a knot in their shoulders it is this particular muscle they are talking about. When this muscle is causing issues it can easily be helped with some general neck stretches or in some more severe cases with specific focused massage. If left untreated it can continue to cause discomfort to headaches to a number of greater shoulder issues. Because Levator Scapulae is one of the most common issues of head, shoulder and neck pain it is likely you or someone you know suffers from problems caused by this muscle. The good news is you don’t have to live with this pain in the neck any longer. Give us a call we can help.
