Neck Pain

Best Neck Therapy in Bend, Oregon

Injury of soft tissue can be a real pain in the neck. Tears, pulls, knots, tightness, and other injury to soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, and tendons) can turn into more serious problems — unless you get to the root of the problem.

According to Harvard Medical School, “If you suffer from pain in your neck, you have plenty of company. Doctors estimate that seven out of 10 people will be troubled by such pain at some point in their lives. One in 10 adults is hurting right now. And between 50% to 85% of people with such pain will be bothered by it again within the next five years. Clearly, neck pain is a common, and troubling problem.”

And yet did you know that neck pain can be relieved and even eliminated?

If soft-tissue injury is not treated properly, it can develop into chronic pain… and bigger problems that doctors will often say ‘requires surgery’. Before you consider the drastic, costly measure of surgery, you owe it to yourself, and your pocketbook, to consider a soft-tissue treatment like no other – Massage + Active Release Techniques combined.

But first, let’s take a look at where your neck pain might be coming from. According to the Mayo Clinic, neck pain can become a temporary or chronic problem when you have:

  • neck pain headache relief through active release techniqueMuscle strains
  • Worn joints
  • Injuries
  • Nerve compression
  • Stiffened disks
  • Herniated disks
  • Bone spurs
  • Diseases such as osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, meningitis, and cancer

Most of these health issues that often cause neck pain can benefit from deep-tissue massage and Active Release Techniques. Of course some of them require the close care of a doctor, but soft-tissue body work can enhance the care or can even replace the need for medical attention altogether.

Scar tissue is often the culprit of soft tissue pain and injury that won’t heal. Scarred soft tissue adheres to each other soft tissue, reduces movement, and festers to the point of increasing inflammation, and thus your level of pain.

ART combined with massage separates soft tissue so it can move again and can begin to heal into normal, healthy tissue — and can even eliminate your neck tissue problem and the pain.

Deep-tissue massage combined with Active Release Techniques has an impressive 90% success rate in completely relieving neck and back pain caused by muscle strains, soft-tissue injury, or nerve compression. For more serious diseases such as cancer, deep-tissue massage and Active Release Techniques is a nurturing, complimentary therapy to any medical care plan.

Whatever the reason for your neck pain, it’s certainly worth trying deep-tissue massage and Active Release Techniques, especially after other modalities — such as chiropractic, drugs, or physical therapy — have not relieved your pain.
