Head and Shoulder Pain Causes
By downloading the ChiroWebMD mobile app you can better control your patient portal.
Head and Shoulder pain can be triggered by many things, like sleeping in an awkward position, sitting in front of a computer too long, a sudden twist or fall, exercising with your head turned, even a minor car accident, if a neck is prestrained. More on that in just a bit.
Recurring headaches and chronic shoulder muscle tension can be a sign of a more serious problem. If you experience recurring headaches, no matter how many aspirin you take. And always have knots in your shoulders no matter how much acupuncture, chiropractic, or massage...
There may still be hope for lasting relief from both headaches and shoulder tension. But you must be ready to try something different than those the temporary relief methods. Because you can’t expect any more from them. And they may be in the way of any lasting relief. But most people with chronic head and shoulder aches can find lasting relief with the right treatments.
Our patients often find lasting relief without drugs or surgery, even those who already tried “everything”.
I was testing for the most prestigious medical school on the planet in tenth grade. Not too much stress there. But that stress was compounded by several chronic health issues. When I woke up one morning and could not turn my head.
Like so many of my current head and shoulder pain patients, I couldn’t remember any recent injury that could cause this neck locking spasm. Even though I did take a few trips to the ER in the past, that was years before and after a few weeks of pain pills, muscle relaxers and physical therapy, my neck felt fine.
While grateful at the time, for the relief, no doctor that treated any of my countless childhood injuries, ever measured anything more than height, weight, blood pressure, temperature with an occasional blood test. Just more and more meds that literally made me sick, and some token physical therapy. On a couple of ER visits I got x-rays, but unless something was broken or dislocated, they said it was just a muscle spasm.
But each new sprain and strain became another weakened link, just waiting to flare up when stressed. Because when any joint sprains, the ligaments that give feedback to the muscles stabilizing that joint, get damaged. So even with mild sprains and strains, if the joint does not receive proper alignment, balance, and coordination rehabilitation, that joint becomes permanently unstable and begins to degenerate at an accelerated pace.
Arthritis can be caused by many things but when one joint appears, on x-ray, 20 years older than the joint right next to it, that means the joint was injured and never properly rehabilitated. Even if that area stopped hurting within days or weeks of injury.
One of my early mentors had a formula for determining the age of any spinal injury on x-ray. And people would come from around the world, staying for days or weeks to get daily treatments. Because he could get most people better, no matter what didn’t work for them prior to that.
And he did that by finding unresolved spinal sprains, then restoring alignment, balance, and coordination. He did that with his hands and precision tools that he invented. But he never twisted or cracked anyone’s spine. Most of his patients were referred by their chiropractors who cared more about their patients than their egos or incomes.
Chiropractic Functional Medicine
When I woke up that morning, in tenth grade, and couldn’t turn my head, that was the one thing that my medical family cautiously considered a chiropractic issue. And I got lucky because the chiropractor that advanced training, no twisting or cracking. Most people prefer the more gentle and precise chiropractic much better if they ever get a chance to compare the two. But at the time, all I cared about was getting rid of the spasm in my neck.
I started feeling better and faster than I did in the past with medication. But this doctor predicted I would feel better within a few treatments and that it would take longer to rehabilitate the previous neck injuries. And I trusted him enough to see if that really meant anything to me.
Long story short, within the first year of treatment, for the first time in my life, I was pain and medication free. I became more active and had fewer injuries because my flexibility, balance and coordination improved dramatically. But I also felt more at ease than ever. My temper improved and I wasn't as easily irritated as before.
Unlike any other doctor, the chiropractor examined and measured my postural Alignment, Balance, and Coordination. And by treating that, instead of just managing pain, all my pre-existing sprains and strains started to heal properly. At least for me, taking the physical stress off my head, neck, and shoulders also solved half a dozen other chronic medical conditions.
None of the surgeries or medications, none of the physical or psychological therapy ever gave me the lasting relief that I found with someone my medical family didn’t even consider a real doctor.
But it took me a whole year to detox from years of daily medication. Some of the damage, from those medications, may never completely heal. But now I work and play as hard as I want to every day, mostly pain free and haven’t even taken an aspirin in almost 40 years.
Most Doctors Agree
Recently the American College of Physicians, a distinguished group of over one hundred thousand medical doctors and healthcare providers, published formal recommendations to avoid pain management and surgery whenever possible. Instead, they suggest non-invasive therapies if the patient responds to those treatments.
And the world-famous Cleveland Clinic released an extensive two-year study tracking thousands of patients who got better Quality of Life results with functional medicine than just conventional medical care alone.
Most doctors know that appropriate diet and exercise is the best long-term medicine for any condition. But they’re expected to write a prescription in a few minutes. Even though any search engine could do that, and much more in less than a second. But neither of those options are good medicine.
How I Got Rid of My Chronic Headaches and Shoulder Tension
After I was properly examined and treated for Alignment, Balance, and Coordination. With specific, no twist or crack, chiropractic to reduce the physical stress, throwing my posture out of balance and coordination... My neck started moving and improving better than previous injuries treated by bracing, PT, and medication. My lifelong headaches and shoulder tension went away too. And once I saw how out of balance I was, I could understand how that postural misalignment was a constant strain on everything else. So now, as long as I stick to my daily stretches and anti-inflammatory diet, I have little if any pain or tension anywhere.
Not Intended As Medical Advice
Even with several new injuries that forced me to find more amazing drug free, non-invasive therapies... I now choose to save time and money by proactively staying healthy, so I don’t miss out on irreplaceable experiences with friends and family. Like I used to when I relied on emergency medical care and constant medications to manage my symptoms.
