Did you know that 45% of all workers experience neck pain? We get many people who come in to Rock Solid reporting neck pain, watch this video to see how we help them:
One of the main causes of neck pain is soft tissue injury (soft tissue includes muscles, tendons and ligaments). The good news is that we can strengthen the soft tissue through proper exercise. At Rock Solid we use the Pendulum 5 Way Neck machine. It allows us to provide resistance against neck extension (looking up to the ceiling, strengthening the muscles in the back of the neck), neck flexion (bringing your chin to your chest, strengthening the muscles in front of your neck), lateral flexion (bringing your ear to your shoulder, strengthening the muscles on the side of your neck), and it allows us to perform a shrug. A shrug is where you bring your shoulders up as high as you can to work the muscles in your upper back, including your trapezius muscles.
The trapezius muscles, or traps, originate in the upper back and attach to your neck. Your traps are part of a group of muscles where many people “hold their stress,” and these muscles often feel tight. Strengthening these muscles can help release some of this tension.
For proof of how this works check out this testimonial from Nancy about how she was on pain medicine for three herniated discs and one bulging disc, and after strength training with us she is now off her medication and pain free!
