Is it shoulder pain? Or a pain in the neck?: Inform Remedial Massage
Sometimes the pain that you experience is vague and it can be hard to describe where it’s coming from.
Differentiating the true cause of shoulder and cervical (neck) pain represents a difficult challenge, with approximately one fourth of patients experiencing both problems. To further complicate things, pain reported in the neck may represent referred pain from the shoulder girdle, and vice versa.
“A remedial massage therapist’s perspective may be really useful here, as they’ll often take a broad view and may consider out-of-the-box explanations such as referred musculoskeletal pain and trigger points.”
It’s really important to get a good picture of the type of pain you are feeling. Important factors such as the cause of your pain, how long you’ve had it, how its progressed, what relieves it, and what makes it worse, are all important clues that can help to narrow things down.
