Treating Neck Pain and Stiffness
Muscles of the Neck and Shoulders
Maureen Abson Presents Healing Massage Techniques for the Neck Muscles.
The neck is a complex and multidirectional part of the body.
It is made up of 7 cervical vertebrae (C1-C7) connected with muscles and ligaments, intervertebral discs that act as shock absorbers, and within this a complex system of nerves. The complexity of the neck's anatomy makes it incredible versatile in how it can move but also leaves it susceptible to injury.
Dr Jonathan Kuttner explains the potential dangers of manipulative adjustments and how neck pain and stiffness can typically be addressed with other massage and manual therapy techniques.
