does anyone have tips to loosen up an incredibly stiff shoulder and neck? I'm in a ton of pain this a.m. I have taken advil and laid on a heating pad (arrgh). can't even turn to check out the clock
I've had a bad shoulder for years. When nothing else works, I get the shower as hot as I can get it, focus the water on the sore spot, and slowly stretch it out. I pull my arm across my body, while stretching my neck towards the opposite side of the pain. Try stretching it several times, a little further each time.
thank you - I have done that too. it is a bit better than it was when I first got up, but still, argh. thank you again for the tips!
I have also had some success with self massage. Usually rubbing the back of my shoulder against the inside of a doorframe, trying to get pressure as deep as possible, helps to get the knots out. Hope you find something that works. I know the agony of neck and shoulder pain. Wouldn't wish it on anyone.
thanks again - I have an appt with a massage therapist in 2 hrs. this is bad. I will try to work out the knots a bit against a door frame. driving in to work was interesting...
how are you feeling now steph? I like to use icy hot. It works pretty well. I also like to go set in a sauna.

I just posted a new hub today - Alternative Medicine - an Overview. I then received the monthly news letter from hubpages. I found that this very topic was a request. Since I already posted it, I suppose I can't take credit for filling the request. Yet, it probably should...

Can tensing up in the neck and shoulder muscles cause odd head pressure?I noticed, anytime I am nervous or anxious I get this head pressure as if I was upside down. My hearing is slightly deaf-end and I usually get a headache before, during or after this. It is a freaky feeling. I feel like I may...
