🔒This patient has been going through a lot of stress and has been experiencing neck and shoulder tightness because of it. Before coming in and seeing us she had been going through a multitude of different shoulder exercises and trying to figure it out on her own. She finally came in and got an assessment and treatment. Turns out it wasn't her shoulder that was the problem!
🔓Last session we went over deep breathing, mindfulness training, sleeping strategies, etc... and not even 48 hours later she's sleeping better and having less pain. It was the stress and the way she was breathing that was the issue all along.
🔍 Although you may be experiencing pain in a certain area, it doesn't necessarily mean that's where the problem is. Assess don't guess otherwise you may waste a lot of time and energy just to be barking up the wrong tree!
