  • Headache
  • Joint Stiffness
  • Muscle Strains and Tension
  • Degenerative Disc Disease & Injuries
Common Causes
  1. Impaired Mechanics: Weakness and muscle imbalance limit the range of motion, while joint stiffness and muscle inflexibility impair posture.

  2. Injury is caused by a rapid load or impact on the tissue.

  3. Chronic compensatory methods include avoiding activity in certain muscle groups and overusing other tissues due to previous injuries or the fear of future injuries.
Core Health's Approach
  1. Correct cervical and thoracic (midback) posture

  2. Release tension in the upper neck muscles.

  3. Make the chest and neck muscles more flexible.

  4. Manipulation, manual joint mobilization, and manual traction all aid in improving joint mobility.

  5. Increase the strength of the muscles that flex the neck and shoulder blades.

  6. Massage, instrument-assisted mobilization, and cupping are all techniques that can help enhance tissue mobility.

  7. Nerve sensitivity (numbness, tingling, and discomfort that extends down the arm).

  8. Perform functional and plyometric activities (throwing, catching, pushing, pulling, and pressing).
