There is only so much you can bear...
Shoulder pain affects all daily activities where we use our hands and arms, and during the night there is nothing worse than trying to sleep on one side or another and never feeling comfortable! A vast variety of events can lead to shoulder pain, which can become troublesome over long periods of time. Here are some common diagnoses:
Acromioclavicular Joint problems
Rotator Cuff Disorder
Remember, drugs (analgesics, anti-spasmodic, anti-inflammatory agents) all treat symptoms and not cause, and for some of us, they present unwelcomed side-effects. Osteopathy can help relieve muscular tension, aches & pains, and alter posture by mobilisation, soft tissue manipulation to help realign the body and get it moving. Gentle and natural manipulation will restore circulation, realign muscles and the nervous system, and the correct stretches will help to drain toxins and ease stiffness.
One of the treatments Ann uses is the Neil Asher techniques to help reset the nervous system and muscles and reduce trigger points. This neurological technique reduces pain and stiffness, and fools the body/brain by working one group of muscles against another sequentially called Cortical-neuro-somatic Programming.
