http://resolveyourpain.com Cure cervical disc disease. Solve neck & shoulder pain with Active Isolated Stretching (AIS). An alternative to chiropractic, physical therapy, and surgery.
The principle cause of cervical disc changes and chronic shoulder pain is inflexibility in the muscles that surround the problem joint.
The modern office worker spends six to eight hours at a computer (a laptop computer is especially damaging for neck health), sleeps on their side (which compresses the shoulder joint), and drives in traffic for two hours a day. The postural changes that develop from this lifestyle are: forward head posture, rounded shoulders, and collapsed chest muscles which are always part of the problem in C4, C5, C6, C7 cervical disc issues. Common neck muscles that become strained from this routine are the trapezius, sternocleidomastoid, and scalene muscles.
The cervical discs provide cushion for the cervical spine. If the upper body muscles are affected by excessive tension, they exert an overload of pressure on the cervical discs. Causing degeneration or herniation in the C4, C5, C6, C7 cervical discs.
When conventional neck pain treatment is not successful there are two common reasons. One, traditional care does not treat the muscles that are underneath the neck. Muscles of the chest, shoulders, upper arms, and upper back have everything to do cervical disc pain. Secondly, other methods that try to lengthen muscles are not being thorough. When the procedure is incomplete, the problem returns.
Lengthening muscles is the aim of yoga, pnf stretching, massage, thai massage, static stretching, rolfing, and myofascial release. But Active Isolated Stretching is the most detailed system of lengthening muscles. The developer of AIS organized a new system that allows each individual muscle (that is part of the problem area) to relax and return to normal position. This process encourages the body to heal naturally.
