For some of us who sit at the computer all day, neck pain and other problems can be pretty common. Naturally, our body will tend to slouch toward our computer screen, paperwork, or phone, as the day goes on. Posture suffers with repetitive stain and the neck muscles are forced to work harder than they were designed to.
Cumulative trauma disorders (CMD), and repetitive strain are the leading cause of pain and work related injuries. Neck pain, carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, even shoulder impingement are just some of disorders most likely to develop in office settings. These are all caused from overuse!
While the previously mentioned conditions are common in the work place, very people actually find permanent relief from their problem. Stretching, exercise, even adjustments have given some relief in the past. Most find these treatments to provide only temporary relief. Others opt for constant medication. As common as these problems are, why are they so difficult to fix?
Adhesion is something you probably haven’t heard of before. Adhesion is the result of overuse and develops in the muscles, ligaments, and around nerves of the body. It is the most common, most misdiagnosed, and mistreated condition in the human body! The good news? It can be easily reversible if your provider knows how to fix it!
Fixing adhesion helps to restore proper movement and functionality to your body. Not only does flexibility and strength increase as a result of fixing adhesion but it can also help to reduce the amount of arthritic and degenerative changes as we age. Symptoms of adhesion can range from dull achy pain to tingling, burning, numbness into the extremities.
