Have Neck and Shoulder Pain

Have Neck and Shoulder Pain

Elements Massage Happy Valley

Neck and shoulder pain can range from mild discomfort to severe pain. Symptoms include tingling sensations, shooting pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion, muscle spasms, headaches, soreness and even numbness.

The causes of neck and shoulder pain are attributed to strains from sports-based activities, overexertion and bad posture. The most common type of soft tissue injuries in this area of the body include:

  • Rotator Cuff Tear
  • Pinched Nerve (Cervical Radiculopathy)
  • Whiplash
  • Cervical Spondylosis (Cervical Osteoarthritis)
  • Herniated Disc
  • Sleeping Position
  • Cervicogenic Headaches
  • Shoulder Separation
  • Bursitis
  • Referral Pain

If your pain is intense, you should visit with your primary care physician to diagnose the cause. Our team at Elements Massage Happy Valley is happy to be a part of your care and follow up treatment plans. Other tips to heal include taking a break from activities that aggravate the neck and shoulder area, rotating ice packs and warm compresses and doing light stretching and massage work under the care of a medical professional.

Your treatment plan to address discomfort will rely on the underlying cause of your pain. Our team is excellent at addressing shoulder and neck pain that results from strains, sprains, and overexertion. Contact us today about your neck and shoulder pain.
