Pain In The Neck Is More Than A Cliche

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Nov 04, 2015 | 0 Comments

When you consider what we ask our neck and shoulder muscles to do, it's little wonder how many of us have chronic neck pain. The typical head weighs as much as a bowling ball. We expect our neck to keep our heads upright all day as we turn from this direction to that.  So, what to do for neck pain? Two solutions that work seem to be 1) improve your posture and 2) stick a needle in it.  I suppose no one is going to argue that better posture is a poor idea. There is something called the Alexander Technique which purports to teach people how better to sit. stand, and walk.

 This program looks, frankly, a little new agey. I have a notion that chanting and eating granola figure in somehow. But even if you skip all that, just being mindful of your posture has to help. The other technique showing some promise is acupuncture.  I really don't know what to make of the idea of sticking needles into precise spots on the body to relieve pain. In some ways, it makes the Alexander Technique look like quantum mechanics. But if something has been around this long, there must be something to it.  Perhaps it is just our old friend the placebo affect.  But, if the net result is your neck stops hurting, I guess who cares why.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
