Courtenay came into our clinic with some serious pain in the neck (cx) area almost resulting in surgery. Degeneration of the spinal discs c1,2,3,4 and 5 is what Courtenay was facing as well as being under the influence of serious pharmaceutical drugs. Oxyedone, a pain medication pill was the main drug being used to ‘help’ Courtenay deal with the pain.
Poor posture, constantly working, no exercises or movement along with lack of sleep is what very much lead to the pain he was feeling!
Due to all of this combined, his muscles became very guarded and shortened tremendously which then puts unnecessary pressure on the spine causing restriction of movement.
Scheduled in for surgery, Courtenay decided to try a natural therapy in order to help one last time. At first decreasing his pain was the main priority as well as correcting his posture and muscle imbalances.
Treatment included using various techniques such as myo fascial release, trigger point and deep tissue release. A lot of treatment was focused in the cx (neck) and thoracic region, as well as upper back muscles, pecs and shoulders was the main focus of treatment!
