Constant shoulder and neck discomfort?

Dr. Mark Cantieri

Muscle pain: Many times neck and muscle pain is due to weakness and inhibition of the lower terapezius muscles causing excessive tightening of the upper trapezius muscle and of the neck muscles. Scapular stabilization retraining exercises are very helpfu. Avoid the drugs especially muscle relaxants as they are only sedatives for the most part and don't address the cause of the problem.
