Neck Pain Exercises That Stop Pain

Best Exercises For Neck PainWhen you have a sore neck it can be so frustrating not being to find good info or guidance on how to stop the pain. There are loads of ways to treat a painful neck. Exercise is still one of the best treatment tools available. Our bodies were designed to move and move properly. Bad posture habits and poor movements patterns do contribute to the cause of the ache or pain your experiencing.

Knowing how to move your neck to feel that relief you’ve been looking so hard for is what I want to show you today. Having dealt with so many patients over the years I can tell you that normally people just don’t know how to exercise the neck area. I have never heard anyone who trains at a gym telling me they do a neck workout.

Pain Between Shoulder Blades: Do You Suffer Upper Back Discomfort?

pain between shoulder blades
Shoulder Blade Pain?

Quite often a patient would come into the Chiropractic clinic and tell me they have an upper back discomfort that is causing a pain between their shoulder blades. The patient will then usually want to show me the area where their dull ache or stabbing pain is by touching my own thoracic spine. Most people can’t reach the painful area on their own backs so they need to help me to know exactly where it is hurting.

This type of patient will usually say that what they are experiencing in their upper back region can be described as: a burning ache, stabbing or a sharp pain between shoulder blades. Maybe the neck or arm is involved as well.

Today you are going to learn a lot about the symptoms of middle to upper back pain, common and serious causes for pain between shoulder blades and treatment tips for getting relief from aches and pain in-between the shoulder blades in your back today.

Bear Crawl Exercise: Todays Movement Challenge

Bear Crawl Exercise
Been There Bear Crawled

If your a rehab chiropractor then you’ll probably know what the bird dog exercise and bear crawl exercise are all about. Otherwise they might sound like some strange animal movement or yoga pose if this is your first time exposed to this way of rehabilitation movement.

I came across a very interesting video on Facebook from Dr Craig Liebenson, who you would have seen in the bending forward causes low back pain article. Craig felt this was a good example of good human form and movement that even Russian personal trainer, Pavel Tsatsouline, would share this video. Craig follows the rehabilitation exercise school of thought from the Prague school of rehabilitation using Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization. I have just finished the DNS A course and about to do DNS B CPD course at the AECC later this month. The bear crawl position is one of the DNS rehab postures and active exercises. Watch the video below to learn more.

Reduce Inflammation and Loneliness: Latest Mindfulness Training Research

Lonely
Mindfulness Training Can Change Your Feelings

I came across some very cool research from July 2012 showing how changing your mind can change levels of inflammation in your bloodstream. When looking at inflammation which is causing pain and disease in your body most people only think of taking an anti-inflammatory or pain-killer medication. This kind of research is important I believe because it shows you that you have the ability to change your body without medication only.

In this study they used a technique called Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) on older adults (55-85 years old) to see if they could change their feelings of loneliness and change the inflammation marker in the blood called C-Reactive Protein (CRP). Could this be a simple treatment tool people in acute and especially chronic pain are missing to help heal their bodies? I think so.

Don’t Die Early Book by Rocky Angelucci: My Positive Review

Don't Die Early Book Review
Don’t Die Early Author Rocky Angelucci

I love those books you start reading and end up not being able to put it down because it’s just such a good story you just need to know what happens at the end. These kind of awesome reading events are normally reserved for the latest fictional novel series to hit the book stores and definitely not for a book about health.

Well, prepared to be pleasantly surprised and, I hope, youthfully excited about knowing how to really test your state of health, your state of wellness.

Have I got your attention yet? I just finished reading the kindle ebook titled “Don’t Die Early: The Life You Save Can Be Your Own” by Rocky Angelucci and I wanted to blog about it straight away. In today’s post I needed to let you know why I’m excited by what I learnt, why I’m going to be recommending this book to my Chiropractic patients and a for you to hear my book review.
