Neck pain -muscle spasms
Thursday, November 07, 2019
I have been seeing a chiropractor/physical therapist all summer. He cured mid back pain and upper back pain in 2 sessions. But the neck muscles, especially on one side, are not getting fixed. He says they spasm and have been building this problem for years. My hours on the computer don't help of course. He does deep massage and gave me
2 exercises 3X daily
-for a full minute bend my head down and to one side, repeat on the other side. This stretches a large muscle across the shoulder and down one side of the back.
-pretend I am squeezing an orange between my shoulder blades 10X. 3X daily.
But i still am getting spasms. I use a heating pad sometimes. I bought this thing. It stays on better than a heating pad and it vibrates. Hope this helps. It feels really good using it!
And, long ago I bought this big hand held massager. I actually forgot I had it. I am not sure where it is. Another thing to find in the moving boxes!
