About pain, muscle tension, rheumatism and crick in the neck
Pain and stiffness in the neck are often caused irritations in the neck muscles, joints or cartilage disc. This can be arise from trauma, a rapid improper movement or prolonged overload.
- Muscle tension (muscular rheumatism): Is an inappropriate contraction in isolated areas of the muscle, causing local pain or pain attributed to other places on the body depending on the rheumatism location. Muscular rheumatism occurs during long-term loads on the body, stress, or in connection with the holding head. Chiropractic therapy or physical therapy has a good effect.
- Crick in the neck: Caused an irritation in the small neck-joints or a tear in the cartilage disc. This leads to poor movement in the joint. In addition to reduced mobility and pain from the joint begins muscles around the joint often tightening (a kind of protection mechanism), and therefore can easily cause a vicious cycle of pain from both muscles and joints. Hold the neck is after lumbar hold the most frequent symptom of the spine. The symptoms may be partly due to a prolonged loads on the neck or a fast inappropriate movement of the neck. Chiropractic is very effective.
- Attitudes Related Pain: A bad attitude is often due to muscular imbalance around the neck and shoulder region. Typically the patient will stand with protruding head position and with a tendency to sag in the middle part of the back, so the shoulders slip out. The syndrome occurs over a long time and can, for example due to poor posture. Symptoms come on slowly and insidiously the most common are headache, neck and back pain, pain around the shoulder blade and a vague tingling in the arm.

Typically, the irritation be localized to the muscles making the inward and outward rotation of the shoulder or the small bursas, which is around the shoulder joint. Shoulder pain can often be prolonged either because the shoulder is not getting enough rest, or because of lack of rehabilitation. Chiropractic therapy or physical therapy, followed by extensive rehabilitation has good power.

Frozen shoulder (Adhesive capsulitis of shoulder)
The cause of 'frozen shoulder' is still unknown, but the symptoms are thought to be due to a state of irritation in the shoulder joint capsule. The capsule is contracted to give the characteristic symptoms with reduced movement and pain in the shoulder when the arm is placed over the head or behind the back. Daily living such as dressing on and off and washing the hair can often be troubled. The condition disappears by itself, but can range from months to years. Chiropractic therapy or physical therapy can often relieve and shorten the process, since the secondary tension is removed and you are guided in rehabilitation. Furthermore, the use of shock wave therapy should be considered in addition to the physiological processing of a frozen shoulder. Continuing anyway to do evil, and the shoulder continues to be rigid, surgery can be necessary.
About Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)
Shock Wave Treatment (ESWT) has been used for years, and several studies have shown promising results. Treatment form is relatively new, but more and more clinics offer shock wave therapy as an adjunct to conventional physiotherapy. Shock Wave Therapy is used for example:
- Tennis elbow, golf elbow and mouse arm
- Calcifications in the shoulder and frozen shoulder
- Heel Spur - Plantar fascitis
- Achilles tendon tendinosis
- Runners knee and jumpers knee
- Other chronic tissue disorders and late
Frequent disorders "musculoskeletal system", which have been found to be susceptible to shock wave therapy (ESWT). Most of these can be treated by conventional physiotherapy, but in many cases, treatment is not enough power, why states become chronic. And this method can in some cases replace surgery. A typical course will consist of 3-5 treatments of 5-10 minutes duration.
