  • Pain, Stiffness and Tension

Often a forgotten or neglected region, the trunk and ribs are commonly the source or cause of much pain. It can be a reason why neck pain continues to reoccur, why shoulder injuries are recalcitrant and a reason for referred pain into the arms and sometimes even into the legs. Let us help you find your pain and discover the path to recovery.

Trunk – Postural Pain

  • Pain increased with breathing and coughing.
  • Pain between the shoulder blades, commonly referring to neck, shoulders and often into arms.
  • Occasionally associated with pins/needles and numbness in arms.
  • Constant ache, can be acute with muscle spasm between shoulder blades and into neck.
  • Affects concentration during the day, most commonly felt in static positions such as sitting.
  • Interrupts sleep at times.
  • Stiffness in neck and trunk and often feels like you need to move and stretch all the time.
  • Prolonged static postures such as poor sitting in front of computer or poor sleeping positions
  • Poor fitness
  • Unaccustomed increase in activity especially with turning and twisting
  • Trauma
  • Relieving and unloading the injured structures through stretching and mobilising joints/muscles provides excellent initial relief
