NECK PAIN - Symptoms and Treatment:
If you have neck pain, you’re not alone. Nearly everyone at some point has neck pain that interferes with work, routine daily activities, or recreation and for many of us it can seem never ending. For a vast majority of those with neck pain, no specific anatomical source of pain can be identified. This kind of neck pain is categorized by medical professionals as idiopathic, meaning, a cause cannot be determined. Treatments typically consist of pain medications, steroid injections, and physical therapy. Looking at muscles and ligaments in the neck can provide us with answers to your neck pain. Our study of posture and its relation to pain and musculoskeletal dysfunction fills a large void in the explanation of neck pain and, we believe, is the key to understanding the soft tissue pain that is generally characterized as idiopathic.
NECK PAIN AND NST:
+Neurosomatic Therapy demonstrates how neck pain develops due to the effects of postural imbalance.
+The extensive postural analysis provided by NST can target the causes of neck pain.
+Postural balancing can alleviate and prevent current and future structural damages.
+NST provides measurable results in alleviating neck pain.
EFFECTIVE, NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT FOR NECK PAIN
With respect to neck pain, postural correction through NST addresses sources of pain that are considered "structural" as well as purely muscular issues. For instance, postures where a spinal curvature, or Scoliosis, has developed predispose someone to experience a bulging or herniated disc (a "structural" issue) in the spine, causing neck pain. Any distortion that is allowed to continue will likely cause the disc herniation to become worse. By correcting the posture and the curvature of the spine can remove the pressure from the disc that caused the herniation in the first place, quite often allowing the disc to migrate back to its original position, resolving the pain.
There are many factors that can contribute to the muscular imbalances involved in chronic neck pain, recognizing the postural imbalances and muscles are involved, followed by the proper treatment techniques to normalize the imbalance are vital to eliminating pain. NST takes a systematic, measurable and efficient approach to postural balance.
The basis of Neurosomatic Therapy is an extensive evaluation of posture and a deep understanding about consequences for the body when it deviates from a balanced posture. The combination of these two beliefs give NST an advantage over many other treatment techniques.
