8 thoughts on “Neck And Shoulder Pain Clinic

  1. Why do i have shoulder pain? Is it from working out or my computer work station causing poor posture?
    It’s clicking constantly and going up to my neck.

    • Sound more like working out. Go get a shiatsu or acupressure massage. See the mayo
      clinic on these- you wear clothes- they work on spine and neck. You will feel relaxed
      and your energy will be right in that area. After that, pay attention- do not work the arms
      for a few days- then notice if you do if the pain comes back.

      People get arm shoulder pain from computer keyboard not being right height. Bc
      you are bending the neck and usually you get numb, aching and numb fingers-
      you do not get clicks- clicks are more from repetitive motions knocking things
      a bit out of place.( be sure to sleep on back with neck support- pillow under knees bc
      this allows the neck spine to reset at night- best sleep position)

  2. How to relieve neck pain (I strained it)?
    I know there have been questions like this one, but they are not quite what I need.
    This morning, I woke up and turned my head in a way that the muscle at the bottom left of the neck (it’s almost at the shoulder) strained. I can’t move my head up too much as well as to the left because it hurts. I try to massage it and excercise the muscles but I can’t do much when it hurts like that. :( Should I ice it or what?

    • Treatment depends on what’s wrong. I had a very similar issue and I found that ICE did help- a lot. Heat feels great initially e.g. in the shower on massage mode for 10 minutes. It does in fact loosen up tight muscles but the Mayo Clinic also states that heat draws blood and therefor INCREASES INFLAMMATION which is bad. Ice reduces inflammation- good! I used the re-usable ice packs from Walmart- on for 10 minutes only off for an hour, with Advil and I also went for acupuncture which really helped. I would not do a lot of exercises except some gentle stretches is a Dr. advises. You should read the Robin McKenzie book- I think it’s called Healing Neck Pain. McKenzie is the widely recognized expert. Also, see a real MD- YAnswers is not substitute for a MD and you should never self diagnose. You could hurt yourself!

      FEEL BETTER- these things usually take a lot of time and your neck will alway be a week point so watch out for recurrences of this injury from lifting things, etc.

  3. How long will it take my hair to be shoulder length?
    My hair is 2inches above my shoulder , I don’t have a long neck , my hair/me is healthy , and I also take 3 pills 5000 of biotin everyday. .

    • That depends, some people who takes supplements are doing more harm than good.

      Do you know what’s in the biotin? Biotin alone is not going to do that for your hair, that’s like have a car and not use gas. You need all the healthy foods from Mother Nature, not just biotin.
          Biotin – cauliflower, liver, salmon, carrots, bananas, cereals, yeast, and soy flour. Keep in mind that biotin content is reduced when food is cooked or preserved. One YA poster caused her to have major breakouts from supplements. Another poster said: ”
      i took biotin to grow my hair out, and it ended up falling out too!! it was worse around my bang area, like where you part it, there waas a huge patch of hair missing so i had to move my part for 5 months!”

      The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t have to approve supplements — no agency in the United States does. Because of inadequate quality control and inspection, supplements contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or prescription drugs have been sold to unsuspecting consumers. And FDA rules covering manufacturing quality don’t apply to the companies that supply herbs, vitamins, and other raw ingredients.
      Beginning in February 2008, they experienced one symptom after another: diarrhea, joint pain, HAIR LOSS, lung problems, and fingernails and toenails that fell off. FDA has received numerous reports of harm associated with the use of these products, including stroke, liver injury, kidney failure, heart palpitations, and death. 3-15-11

      Google: MSN “Vitamins Can Do More Harm Than Good.”
      According Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Americans spent an estimated $176 million on hair loss products last year, and chances are some of that money was not well spent. Don’t let charming salon owners, seductive ads or fancy gimmicks convince you otherwise.

      CNN, Slate, Consumer Reports, MSN, YAHOO have posted them online for years how people spend $20 billion per year on vitamins and supplements.  According to Everyday Health, here’s an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.  It is false advertisements.

      Google: Are Supplements Good For You? About 58,000,000 results (0.13 seconds)

      THEN Google: Are vitamins & supplements good for you? About 230,000,000 results (0.17 seconds). Some can actually shorten your life!

      Google: Hair growth caused other men nationwide in class-action lawsuits. About 1,640,000 results (0.10 second.

      Best advice from Hollywood’s well known hairstylist in the 80′s once said: “Keep foods in your mouth and hair products on your hair.”

      If you’ve straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.
      Google: “Foods for Healthy Hair” – Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Don’t expect to look like you’ve stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you’ve changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results.

      Growing healthy hair doesn’t come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you’re in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you’re eating healthy foods. But when hair isn’t growing as fast, it’s because they’ve been tampered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

  4. My friend heard a crunch in his neck and now has pain and headache. Did he damage something?
    He said he stood up, stretched and heard a crunch in his neck. (He’s someone who cracks his neck often, too.) Now he has pain in his neck, shoulder, and a headache on one side. He also doesn’t want to go to the doctor because he doesn’t have insurance. What do you think happened and what he should do?

    • Yes, it is very possible that he may have damaged something in his neck but the only way to know for sure is to see a doctor for further evaluation of the situation. However, due to not having health insurance I would recommend that he check with the city health department to see if they offer a free health clinic that can evaluate this situation further for you.
