Are you limited by your neck pain?
In the course of our lives,all of us have all, on a number of occasions, managed to "block" our necks. This situation is more than unpleasant; it is draining, even exhausting.
Our neck serves us in a myriad of contexts, whether it is to change lanes, in our car, for example, or to watch birds chirp at the top of a tree.
In some cases, people will even think that their neck is "weak" because of the repetition of these disturbing events.
The reality is that our neck experiences different stresses in the course of a day and a lack of mobility in the joints that make it up can promote protective spasms.
Indeed, when your neck 'blocks', known as a sore neck, this is due to, what we call more precisely a '' spasm '', which is a protective reflex. The latter aims to preserve the integrity of adjacent structures. Most of the time, without necessarily realizing it, any activities can make it happen. You could, for example, be doing some movement and you could quickly feel a sharp pain settle, in addition to noting the decrease in the amplitude of your neck. In other cases, these sensations will settle progressively as a result of a particular movement pattern.
What you have to understand is that your neck is the logical continuation of your back and sits at the junction of your shoulders and shoulder blades. It is therefore strongly concerned by adjacent structures.
A lack of shoulder mobility? Your neck may compensate and be hyperactive to assist in the production of missing movements, thereby promoting subsequent spasms. Learn more here.
A lack of mobility in the back? The absence of segmentation in the vertebrae of the back can increase the pressure on some structures of the neck, wanting to compensate for this lack of available movements. Learn more here.

Functions of the neck
The neck unctions through the interaction of structures and tissues that affect the movement of the head, relative to the cervical vertebrae (7 vertebrae), as well as between the cervical vertebraes. These movements are: flexion, extension, ipsilateral rotation, contralateral rotation and lateral flexion.
Our proven steps to improve the functions of your neck
Functional Movement AnalysisTM
During Functional Movement Analysis™, we will observe several elements related to the functions of your neck :
(1) We will use a thermographic apparatus to observe the presence of inflammatory processes;
(2) The ability for your neck to produce dissociation between the vertebraes linked to the movements of the head in relation to the cervical portion carried out passively (with the help of the therapist) and actively (performed by the individual) will be observed;
(3) Segmentation of cervical vertebrae performed in a passive and active manner.
Why does segmentation matter so much? Learn more here.
These movements serve to establish your functional ability to move. If you are limited or feel pain as part of the movements presented, it is not recommended to continue with these. They should be performed in the complete absence of pain.
Corrective Massage TherapyTM
Our manual therapy approach will aim at accelerating the benefits of inflammatory processes, in order to promote healing, to reduce protective spasms, to restore passive amplitudes of passive movements without pain, as well as to promote control, by the individual, movements related to the functioning of the neck.
Thus, we will combine, in a systematic and progressive way:
(1) Specific techniques to accelerate the role of inflammation;
(2) Decompression techniques at the cervical level to promote joint function;
(3) Techniques to restore the ability of the individual to control the different movements of his/her neck by eliminating protective spasms.
Functional Corrective ExercisesTM
What is the best way to act on your quality of life? By giving you the tools you need to take control of your life! No more saying that your neck is '' weak '' - we will allow you to control and understand the movements of your neck.
With different educational tools you will better understand the role of your neck in your daily activities and know what to do on a daily basis to maintain control over the joint health of your neck.
Thus, we will use educational:
(1) Increase active mobility
(2) Dissociate cervical vertebrae from back and shoulders;
(3) Practice daily movements to maintain active mobility amplitudes and preserve your joint functions.
