Do you ever feel pain in your shoulders, or feel pain when you turn your neck? Stress generated by desk and computer work is becoming even more common as the years go by. Computer work is how our culture thrives. However, when your daily life is abruptly interfered with pain, it’s not a great way to thrive. It’s no surprise that neck pain and shoulder pain are both extremely common in our world. It’s where all of our tension basically comes from. Let’s do a quick test to see what the tension is like in your neck and shoulder region. Alright, focus on those two regions and close your eyes for a few seconds to feel the upper neck and shoulder area. Do you feel tense? Are your muscles relaxed or are they tight?
It’s not healthy, or fun, to have any sort of neck or shoulder pain. Your neck is almost like a major highway of your body in a metaphorical sense. When the highway has zero traffic and clear of anything, it means your whole body is relaxed and your blood and nerve flow are moving fluidly with ease, which ultimately leads to a happier body, and more clarity in your brain since oxygen is flowing correctly.
On the contrary, when your neck and shoulders are tense, you might feel tired for no apparent reason, irritated out of the blue, and overall just stressed. Tension and stress can create a form of blockage that stops, slows or interrupts the flow of vital blood and oxygen going both to your brain, and from your brain.
The practice of chiropractics can relieve your stress on your body. Thousands of patients through the years have realized that chiropractic is the most effective and safe treatment for pain in the shoulder and neck, and it offers relief. In some cases, the relief is almost instant.
Are you absolutely positive you want to stay being stressed and all this tension in your neck and shoulders? How much longer will you be able to honestly live with this pain?
Many people feel as though they carry most, if not all, of their stress and body tension in their neck and shoulders. As common as neck pain is, it’s also very painful. There is a simple test that can be taken in order to find out whether or not you suffer from a type of neck pain that might eventually cause more serious health conditions. It’s all about testing your range of motion. All you have to do is look down as far as you can, down towards the ground and beyond as far as looking at your chest. Then look up to the ceiling. Once you’ve done that, you’ll need to turn your head to the right and then to the left. If any of that hurt, then something is wrong. That is not normal. Subluxations (spinal misalignment) can easily be directly linked to neck pain.
