Neck and Shoulder Tension

Symptoms of Neck and Shoulder Tension

The neck and shoulders are an area where almost all clients experience pain, tightness, or some degree of discomfort. This is understandable since this is a complex area and is responsible for most of the movement of the upper body.

Neck and shoulder pain is very familiar to most of us. Tight shoulders, stiff neck, pain, and restriction of movement when the head is moved in certain directions. The most common complaint is pain between the shoulder blades. As always, when you palpate the affected areas you will feel tight bands in the affected muscle groups that are part of neck and shoulder areas.

What Causes Neck and Shoulder Tension?

Some of the main causes of tension in the neck and shoulders are: accidents, sports injuries, exertion, bad posture (especially at the computer for extended periods of time), mental tension, and emotional trauma. All of these conditions cause the shoulders to be raised for long periods and sometimes affect them permanently. You see, just as the muscles tighten as a form of protection in the presence of danger, so too the shoulders rise to protect the head and neck, which are vital parts of the human anatomy.

There is always more to learn, new people to meet, and of course more books to carry. So when the strain starts to get to you, remember that it is important to take time for yourself. And keep in mind, a massage might be just the thing to melt away your cares this season.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?


Internal view of Carpal Tunnel in Wrist Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the most common entrapment syndrome that is located in the arm. It is related to a high repetitive flexion extension action of the wrist. The Carpal Tunnel is located in the wrist, just below the palm. This syndrome is a repetitive use/ strain injury and is caused from repetitive movement in combination with bad posture. This behavior will ultimately result in muscle fatigue and damage.

Symptoms

Pain, numbness and tingling of the thumb, index finger and part of the middle finger are common indicators of this syndrome. Pain in the middle of the night that will wake you from sleep, and loss of grip strength in the hand are symptoms as well.

Symptoms may occur in the third trimester of pregnancy, along with edema of the upper extremities as well as the after a wrist fracture (also known as a Colles Fracture).

Treatment

Massage therapy can help Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in most cases. It is typically more effective when the injury is caused from repetitive and overused motions. The other causes of this syndrome may also be treated with massage therapy. The therapy would initially begin at the neck, and progress down the arm to the hand. The pressure intensity during this treatment is up to what the client can handle at the time. This treatment may address and area that can possibly be painful, so it should always be handled with extreme care.

What can you do to help treat and prevent injury?

  • The most important step is to educate yourself on the condition.
  • Evaluate your work habits, observe your posture, and hand positioning in order to improve it.
  • Your massage therapist may also recommend that you do some stretches at home to help relieve the tension. They may also perform hydrotherapy treatments.

Frozen shoulder is when the shoulder is painful and loses motion because of inflammation.

Symptoms

The main symptoms are:
  • Decreased motion of the shoulder
  • Pain
  • Stiffness
Frozen shoulder without any known cause starts with pain. This pain prevents you from moving your arm. Thereafter lack of movement leads to stiffness, and then even less motion. Over time, you become unable to do movements such as reaching over your head or behind you.

Treatment

Massage therapy is one way to gently stretch and release the muscles to help you manage your pain. Massage relaxes muscles, letting them release, decreases tension and returns them to a more natural state. This may take more then one treatment. With initial treatment, you may see a slight increase in pain, then lessening in pain as treatment continues. Seeing your physician makes sure that medical intervention/adjunct treatment can be given if needed.

Rotator Cuff

Definition: The rotator cuff is a group of four tendons and muscles that converge around the shoulder joint at the top of the humerus bone; the upper arm above the elbow. Together, these parts form a "cuff" that holds your arm in place, plus allows it to move in many different directions. The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints, so an injury to the rotator cuff can be serious. Therefore it is always important to check with your doctor before any treatment is pursued.

Injuries to the rotator cuff can be the result of overuse or trauma.

Massage treatment: Depending on a clients pain, we start with light work to the neck, shoulders, and arm following the pathway of pain, increasing circulation and decreasing the pain.

Sciatica

Definition: The term sciatica describes a symptom rather than a specific disease. Some use it to mean any pain starting in the lower back and going down the leg. Others use the term more specifically to mean a nerve dysfunction caused by compression of one or more lumbar or sacral nerve roots from a spinal disc herniation. Pain typically occurs in the distribution of a dermatome and goes below the knee to the foot. It may be associated with neurological dysfunction, such as weakness. The pain is characteristically of a shooting type, quickly traveling along the course of the nerve.

Arthritis

The Benefits of Massage

In an age of technical and, at times impersonal medicine, massage offers a drug-free, non-invasive and humanistic approach based on the body's natural ability to heal itself. So what exactly are the benefits to receiving regular massage and/or bodywork treatments?
  • Increased circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs.
  • Stimulates the flow of lymph, the body's natural defense system against toxic invaders. For example, in breast cancer patients, massage has been shown to increase the cells that fight cancer.
  • Increased circulation of blood and lymph systems improves the condition of the body's largest organ - the skin.
  • Relaxes and softens injured and over-used muscles.
  • Reduces spasm and cramping.
  • Increased joint flexibility.
  • Reduces recovery time, helps prepare for strenuous workouts and eliminates subsequent pains of the athlete at any level.
  • Releases endorphins - the body's natural painkiller - and is being used in chronic illness, injury and recovery from surgery.
  • Reduces post-surgery adhesions and edema and can be used to reduce and realign scar tissue after healing has occurred.
  • Improves range-of-motion and decreases discomfort for patients with low back pain.
  • Relieves pain for migraine sufferers and decreases the need for medication.
  • Provides exercise and stretching for atrophied muscles and reduces shortening of the muscles for those with restricted range of motion.
  • Assists with shorter labor for expectant mothers, as well as less need for medication, less depression and anxiety, and shorter hospital stays.
