NECK AND SHOULDERS
Neck and shoulder pain is a very common pain complaint and it is a major public health problem, both in terms of personal health and overall well-being. Approximately half of all individuals will experience a clinically important neck pain episode over the course of their lifetime.
It is also amazing how much neck and shoulder pain people will put up with, and just ignore because they think it’s “normal” to be tight and achy” through their upper back. What some people also don’t realise, is that many neck complaints can stem from weakness or tightness in the shoulders or shoulder blades.
