Not all pain is created – and resolved – the same.

Acute pain tends to have a traumatic cause – when you drop a brick on your foot, or break an arm, it’s clear what caused the pain and how to help.

Chronic pain, or constantly recurring pain, may be due to a NeuroStructural Dysfunction. If the nervous system is overaroused, the brain cannot effectively regulate the tissues, keeping the muscles and joints tight until spasm, arthritis, and pain occurs. The brain and nerves can also “learn” pain, sustaining and increasing pain long after the physical damage or original trauma is long past.

This can show up as recurrent neck, back and shoulder pain. It also can manifest as decreased pain tolerance, increased inflammation, high muscle tension, abnormal postural patterns, unstable joints or lack of body awareness.

Common solutions for back, neck, or shoulder pain include medication, massage, physical therapy, and surgery. These can be effective, but if the pain is due to a NeuroStructural Dysfunction the pain will likely recur, intensify, or show up in different regions after your treatment.

If you’re seeking back, neck & shoulder pain treatment, our approach is to assess for and, if present, correct the underlying NeuroStructural Dysfunction behind the chronic back, neck, or shoulder pain and other Secondary Conditions. Our approach also uniquely helps the nervous system better adapt to future stress, decreasing the need to develop future tension and pain. When we get to the root of things, you can resolve the challenges and live an amazing life.
