Fix Your Own Neck and Shoulder Pain

Do you ever get that “crick” in the neck, nagging ache in your trap, or pain in the shoulder blade? These are a few of the descriptions of neck and shoulder pain we hear regularly.

Interestingly, the common neck and shoulder pain are not always complicated. And our clients are often surprised how they can “fix” themselves with simple movement(s).

We’ve put out a lot of video content lately and plan on keeping the train rolling. Organically, one of our neck exercise posts turned into a three-parter, so we thought we would share all in one spot — a blog post!

If you haven’t had a chance to check our content, you can do so on Instagram and YouTube. Also, we routinely push it out on our Facebook page as well.

Make sure to read the video’s descriptions on YouTube (click the video’s title) for further information.
