Don’t work out until you watch this video! The neck and the shoulder are so highly interconnected. There are muscles, fascia, and tendons that run from the neck to the shoulders. If there is a compensation in one, and the problem isn’t taken care of, then you will be having issues in the other. Without getting these problems addressed you will have chronic neck and shoulder pain.
The shoulder itself is attached onto the body mostly by soft tissue. The only actual “joint” is where your collarbone meets you mid chest. That’s it! Just like strings of a web, if one string is pulled tight the other areas of the web must compensate. This overtime will cause massive compensations that the body just can’t handle. There is a way to stop it. Come see us.
At Any Spine Chiropractic Center in Atlanta, we focus on whats called structural shifts. An example for someone dealing with chronic neck and shoulder pain would be, lets say, your pec minor has shortened. Pec minor is a muscle that is below pec major. This small muscles attaches to the ribs and to the shoulder blade. If this muscle becomes tight, it pulls the entire shoulder blade up and forward. Rounding the shoulders. Once this happens your shoulder blade does not move correctly and can lead to chronic neck and shoulder pain. This is just one example. Like stated earlier, the shoulder is mostly connected by soft tissue. Any muscle or fascial line can be restricted causing your neck and shoulder problems.
