Questions Related to Pain Sufferers. / Re: Cervicogenic headaches

Hi Sharon, if there is a trapped nerve it will be the muscle imbalance and tension that is causing a compression on the area so it has everything to do with the muscles. I am sure if you balance her shoulders and straighten her neck by releasing all the muscle tension in her whole body both symptoms will go away.

Questions Related to Pain Sufferers. / Cervicogenic headaches
« Last post by Sharon Jennings on June 10, 2017, 08:45:29 PM »
I have a client who has cervicogenic headaches, recently diagnosed by the neurologist at the local hospital.  Along with that she is diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome even though she doesn't have any of the symptoms that are usually associated with CTS.  She complained of a stiff right shoulder and of course, now complains of neck pain and mentioned that the tingling in her arm at night is the symptom of CTS(whilst sleeping on her back, which is the position she wakes from when she gets the tingling).  Is there anything I can offer her more specifically from the SLM treatment which may help relieve the problem as the neurologist mentioned that it is to do with a trapped nerve between the facets joints in the neck rather than it being muscle related.

Hi Clint, spend as much time as necessary on the floor doing pressure point work on your erectors, hips and glutes and when you can do your hamstrings as well.

The water exercise is a good idea but even as simply as hanging in deep water from a noodle or similar and doing scissor action/ strides with your legs.

Cheers Steve

Hi Steve
My ongoing sciatic pain has progressed to constant pain all through the lower back buttock and leg down the right side. I can no longer stand up and crutches are even painful. I am crawing. I would like mri scans done and a better pain medication. Today i might try gentle heated pool movements or do u think i should wait to get scans...after being to the hospital and discharged after receiving codiene asprin and paracetimol and being left for 3 hours to "see how that goes" and told to stretch, get massage/physio. What you think best options? Ive been eating clean no caffeine sugar white bread. Home made organic vege soup raw fruit n veg. Cheers clint

There are lots of pressure points around the body Murray and I am surprised you haven't been rolling around on a ball and found them all by now. I suggest you do that between now and when you see him again. Yes they are in the first massage lesson and any other sensitive nerve points you have found as you are massaging.

Don't use the bongers. If he won't give up the alcohol and you can't get anywhere with the acupressure tell him you can't help him until he does.

Regards
Steve
