Manual Edge_Relieving Neck Pain and Stress


Discover A Pain Free Life

As a Physical Therapist and Canadian Trained Osteopath, I enjoy treating patients with complex pain, especially those patients that haven’t responded well to other types of treatment. Just recently, I had a patient come to see me about the severe pain he was having in his upper abdomen and chest, as well as trouble swallowing, now for well over a year. He had his gall bladder removed in January of 2017 and then had an endoscopy (a tube put down his throat with a camera on it) in October of 2017

that caused him even more pain. He was very frustrated as he had seen many types of specialists that couldn’t find anything wrong, and gave him muscle relaxants, antacids, and pain medication. Using my hands, I was able to locate the problemwith the movement of his stomach, esophagus, liver, and the throat fascia (think Saran Wrap – like tissue in the throat). Using gentle Visceral Manipulation, I was able to get his stomach, esophagus, liver and neck fascia, moving normally again to eliminate his pain. He is now able to eat again without trouble swallowing too. He is doing great and is quite happy about how our treatment has helped him. It’s always hard to see people in pain, but when you can really help them it feels great. That is why I do what I do. It feels amazing to be able to help people like that! Tim Bonack

The Cause of Most Headaches Headaches can range from minor nagging pains to full-blown migraines that knock you off your feet for a day or two. Any headache, whether tremendous pain or not, should be a warning sign that the muscles around your spine and neck may be too tight and tense. Prolonged muscle tension may cause you to feel stiff and achy. One may feel pain in the shoulders, neck, upper back and even radiating out to the upper arms. Most people who have headaches complain about having neck and shoulder pain. The most intense pain usually lies directly in the upper back and sides of the neck. The pain then radiates into the shoulder area. This is why many people who have headaches treat themselves to frequent neck and shoulder massages. Relief That Works Physical therapy goes beyond massages to evaluate and treat the root cause of your pain. Muscular tightness may lead to poor joint movement and weakness. Our physical therapy experts are trained in specialized, hands- on treatments to quickly reduce your pain. Furthermore, you can enjoy the added benefits of corrected posture and improved motion. We help to train you in gentle exercises and self-help techniques to relieve neck pain and headaches independently and prevent the problem from reoccurring. Physical therapy can help you to relieve the tightness and tension in your muscles, helping you live a happy, pain-free life.

Focus On Neck Pain To Relieve Headaches

Relieve That Nagging Headache Naturally! The neck can be a hidden and debilitating source of headaches. Very often neck pain and headaches go hand- in-hand, leading to a miserable time coping with everyday activities. According to the National Institute of Health Statistics, neck pain and headaches are the second most common form of pain experienced by Americans, with 59% reporting it affected their enjoyment of life. Some headaches areoften groupedunder the term “cervicogenic headache” meaning that the primary source is from the neck. (about that of a bowling ball). With fatigue, poor posture, injuries, disc problems, arthritis, muscular stress and even prior surgeries, the wear and tear on this critical region of your body can prove too much, resulting in pain. It is also possible that you may develop a narrowing of the spinal canal itself. Since the spinal cord runs through the spine, a narrowing of the canal or where the nerves exit, can lead to a condition called spinal stenosis. Print sudoku 3 8 1 3 7 5 4

There are well mapped out patterns of headaches that come from the different parts of the neck, shoulder and upper back areas. The discs between your bones (vertebrae) and joints in the upper neck often contribute to headaches. Even headaches located in the forehead or behind the eyes are often referred pains stemming from problem areas in the neck and base of the skull. The joints connecting the top three vertebral levels of the neck handle almost 50% of the total motion of the entire neck. This means they absorb a lot of repetitive strain. These joints bear the main load of the weight of the head 5 9 1 6 4 3 3 7 2 7 2 4 3
