If someone comes in to Evo Performance Rehab with neck pain, often they have been doing some stretches, getting chiropractic adjustments, or getting massages, but very seldom do they actually know what is wrong with their neck that it is so tight or so painful.
When we do the neurological search process and identify where the real dysfunctions are coming from, we may see someone with an extremely painful and restricted neck get complete, full range of motion within one session, even if our locations are in their shoulder or in their midback.
A recent exercise physiologist client presented with a severely limited range of motion, turning her head to the left. She also displayed a lack of range of motion through her rotator cuff. When we did the location process, her neck was fairly clear. And we found dysfunction in the areas of her infraspinatus and supraspinatus, two of her rotator cuff muscles.
When we worked to restore high-level communication between her brain and her shoulder muscles and rotator cuff, her neck was able to stop overcompensating and let go. Within the first treatment, she was able to move her shoulder better and had full range of motion again.
Another example of this would be a construction industry professional who came to us with a severe disc herniation between C six and seven vertebrae in his neck. This man would have severe shooting pain down the back of his arm if he ever had to look upwards.
When we did the location process, we found locations in his shoulder blade, the teres minor, and the medial short head of his bicep. When we stimulated these areas to communicate more appropriately, he was able to look up with greatly reduced pain, even though nothing had changed in the structures of his neck.
From there, the man was able to completely avoid the surgery that had been planned to fuse the vertebrae in his neck. This was done by retraining the activation of muscles and resetting the balance and function of muscles and posture while moving and exercising. Needless to say, he was very happy about that.
