Step 1 - End Muscle Attachment Inflammation



Neck pain relief, especially when the pain is at the top of your neck, can often be achieved by simply releasing the muscles that attach to the bottom of your skull (your occiput) and then connect to the top of your neck . Our modern lifestyles of driving a lot and sitting in front of computers often work these muscles in ways that will cause them to tighten over time and cause your neck pain.

We'll be using press-hold-move technique and the hand-on-hand technique Here's what you're going to do:

A. Take the tips of your fingers of your dominant hand and place them on the back of your neck where your neck and skull come together. If you are right handed, then your right hand is your dominant hand…If you are left handed, that is your dominant hand. Now curve your fingers a little bit, and take the palm of your other hand and place it over your dominant hand. We call this the hand-on-hand technique - it allows you to apply pressure without tiring out your hands. You will simply press on the tissue with your finger tips, and press on your finger tips with your other hand. It's amazing how much easier it is to work on yourself using the "hand on hand" technique.

Now press the tips of your fingers into the tissue in this area around the top of your neck and the bottom of your skull and notice any tender areas. Some people find it easier to lie on the floor when they do this, so the weight of your head can help you press into the tissue. Remember, healthy tissue is not tender when you press on it, so you are trying to find all the unhealthy (tight) tissue that needs to be released. Simply put……tender tissue is unhealthy tissue.

Now we'll add the press-hold-move technique to what you're already doing. Pick one of the tender spots, one at a time, and press on the tissue with your fingertips, while your other hand pressing on your finger tips to add more pressure. As you do this, move your head in a "yes" motion for a few nods, a "No" motion for a few turns. Keep pressing on the tender spots and moving your head in the way where you feel the tenderness until in releases. Take your time. Be patient. After a minute or two take a break, and notice the amount of neck pain relief this one technique provides. Repeat Step 1, two to three more times before moving on to Step 2. You may not get all the tender spots to release, but do the best you can before moving on the Step 2.

Feel free to use the press-pull-release technique in addition to what you've already done. It will only enhance your results.

Notice the amount of pain relief this Step 1 provides for future reference.

Step 2 - Stop Nerve Pathway Irritation



Sometimes you'll get simple, instant relief from Step 2. Sometimes it's Step 1 or Step 3 that seems to provide more neck pain relief, but the only way to tell is to do the techniques. Here's what you're going to do:

A. Using the same hand-on-hand technique you learned in Step 1, sit in a chair and take the tips of your fingers of your dominant hand and place them on the back of your neck where your neck and shoulder come together. If you are right handed, then your right is your dominant hand…If you are left handed, that is your dominant hand. Now curve your fingers a little bit, and take the palm of your other hand and place it over your dominant hand.

Start by pressing the tips of your fingers into the tissue in this area around your neck and shoulder intersection and notice any tender areas. Now, using your hands the same way, gently move up your neck with your fingertips on both sides of your spine and notice any tender areas. Remember, healthy tissue is not tender when you press on it, so you are trying to find all the unhealthy (tight) tissue that needs to be released.

Pick one of the tender spots at a time and press on the tissue with your fingertips, while your other hand presses on your finger tips to add more pressure. Now do the press-hold-move technique by moving your head in a "YES" motion for a few nods, a "NO" motion for a few turns.

Keep pressing on the tender spots all up and down the back of your neck and moving your head in the way where you feel the tenderness. After a minute or two take a break, and notice the amount of neck pain relief this one technique provides.

Repeat this Step 2, two to three more times before moving on to Step 3. You may not get them all to release, but do the best you can before moving on the Step 3.

Feel free to use the press-pull-release technique in addition to what you've already done. It will only enhance your results.

Again, notice the amount of neck pain relief this Step 2 technique provides for future reference.

Step 3 - Restore Joint Muscle Balance



There are many muscles that can negatively affect the delicate balance of your neck and cause you to seek neck pain relief. Any muscle that attaches to your collar bone (clavicle) or your shoulder blade (scapula) can be causing your neck pain. Like the rigging on a sailboat, one muscle being too tight can throw the whole balance of your neck off and cause neck pain. We're going to take a few moments to check them all. Here's what you're going to do:

A. Side of Neck -

Using the hand-on-hand technique that you did in Step 1 and 2 we're going to work on the side of your neck (scalenes and sternocleidomastoid muscles).

Place the tips of your fingers from your dominant hand where the side of your neck meets your skull (just behind your jaw bone). With your other hand gently pressing on your fingers to add pressure, gently press on the side of your neck from top to bottom and notice any tender (tight) spots.

Now do the press-hold-move technique. While gently turning your head like you were saying the word "NO," press on the tender spots until you notice them becoming less tender. Repeat this for the other side of your neck as well.

Notice how much neck pain relief this technique creates.

B. Collarbone -

Using the same "hand on hand" positioning, place the tips of your fingers from your dominant hand onto the muscle tissue on the underside of your collarbone (subclavius, pectoralis minor, pectorals major). Press along the entire length of the underside of your collarbone on all the soft tissue (all the way across until you run into your shoulder muscles) and notice any tender spots. Now, doing press-hold-move technique while turning your head like you are saying the word "NO" press your finger tips into the tender spots.

Notice how much neck pain relief this technique creates.

C. Top of Shoulder -

Using the same "hand on hand" technique we're going to work on the top of your shoulders (supraspinatus muscle) that can sometimes pull on your neck and cause neck pain.
Put the tips of your fingers where your shoulder meets your neck (on the very top of your shoulders, not on your upper back). Press on the tissue all the way out to your shoulder muscles and notice any tender spots. Using the "hand on hand" technique press on any tender tissue while turning your head like you are saying "NO" continuously. Repeat this process for the other side.

Now, work any remaining tender spots using press-pull-release technique.

Notice how much neck pain relief this creates.

D. Side of Shoulder Blade -

This one technique can often instantly provide neck pain relief. Take your hand and reach it across your body so your finger tips can feel the very outer edge of your shoulder blade. Now come forward just a bit so your finger tips are touching the muscles on the front edge of your shoulder blade (teres and subscapularis muscles). Now do press-hold-move technique. Press on any tender spots in these muscles, while you gently flap your arm being worked on like a wing,. Repeat this process for the other side.

Work on any remaining tender spots in this area using the press-pull-release technique.

Notice how much neck pain relief this technique creates.

E. Upper Back -

We're going to do tennis-ball-press technique

Lie on the floor with a tennis ball under your shoulder blade or put a tennis ball in a sock and lean against the wall with the tennis ball between your shoulder blade and the wall (infraspinatus muscle).

Slide your elbow along the floor or wall while the tennis ball is placed under any tender spots. Now position the tennis ball in the space between your shoulder blade and your spine (rhomboid muscle). Move your arm in the same motion as you put pressure on any tender spots. Do this on both sides of your upper back.

Notice how much neck pain relief this technique creates.

F. Jaw -

If you have not yet experienced substantial neck pain relief then you most likely need to release your jaw…especially if you grind or clench your teeth at night. Click this jaw joint pain link or on the menu bar to your left to learn how to release your jaw.

Notice how much neck pain relief this technique creates for future reference.


Self-Assessment Of
Neck Pain Relief

How much neck pain relief did you achieve? Is your neck pain completely gone? Partially gone?
Which techniques gave you the most neck pain relief?
Did Step 1, Step 2, or Step 3 work best?
Was there one specific neck pain treatment that instantly relieved your pain? Remember what worked best for you, so you can do that first next time you need neck pain relief.

Are you still experiencing some neck pain?
Which neck muscles are still tender (that means they are tight!) and could use some more work?
Go back and repeat those techniques that seem to need a few more rounds. You may be pleasantly surprised at the results you get now that you've released other muscles that may cause them to be tight.

Investigate a bit and you'll eventually find which techniques work best for you to provide the neck pain relief you are seeking. Then you'll be able to fix yourself whenever you desire!
