After years and years of seeing massage therapists, physical therapists, and chiropractors, I figured that I may just have to deal with stiffness and tightness in my neck forever.
And while I would get temporary relief from all the above, nothing was long-lasting.
Then, Strive2Move came and spoke at my gym and decided that maybe he could offer and different solution. They took an approach that seemed holistic and was much more concerned with finding the root cause as opposed to just a quick fix.
After the initial evaluation, we found that while the treatment I had been getting before was helpful, it was not really addressing the problem.
In fact, as we dove deeper, he found that my breathing and core strength was one of the major factors in what was causing my neck pain. Who would have thought?
After we corrected this, I was still suffering from occasional pain so we began to look at my movements and we literally went through all of my lifting techniques at the gym.
What we found was that I was overusing my neck muscles during exercise and this was causing chronic tightness. After a few weeks of working through this, my neck pain and tightness has really gone away!
I am no longer in search for that quick fix!
If you are someone who has been suffering for a long time from pain, I urge you to contact Strive2Move as they can get you results that I have yet to find elsewhere!
