Remedial massage can relieve the tension in the neck
Neck and Shoulder Tension is extremely common, if not the most common complaints we get from patients at Massage Solutions. The neck is a highly movable and highly flexible part of the body. It is responsible for movements such as flexion, extension, lateral flexion and rotation making it a very versatile part of the body.
People tend to hold tension in the neck region due to a number of reasons including mental and emotional stress. This can lead to chronic pain as well as deep penetrating headaches and migraines. We can help you find lasting relief from neck and shoulder tension.
Sitting at a computer desk for long periods of time will cause fatigue in the muscles of the neck and body designed to stabilize our posture or being involved in a car accident will create trauma to your neck and shoulders from whiplash causing these stabilizing muscles to become imbalanced. As these stabilizing muscles become fatigued, more load is placed on the neck as well as muscles designed to support and move our neck and shoulders. Due to the long periods of added load these muscles fatigue as well and begin to tighten (contract) creating pain and tension in the region. Effective massage is required to free the tension that is causing the pain.
Repetitive actions will also cause the muscles in the upper back, shoulder and neck regions to become fatigued, causing unwanted knots and tension. For example, a store worker packing boxes for long periods of time, or a hairdresser holding their arms out cutting hair all day, help to create neck pain. Therefore, repetitions of bad actions/movements ultimately cause pain and imbalance. We have the perfect solution to painful tension.
