Did your migraines start happening years ago or have you had  them most of your life?  If they started in the last 5 years they may be coming from muscle problems.  Do you know what is causing them?  Is your migraines caused by a past whiplash or from your TMJ jaw problem? 

I see 2 frequent kinds of migraines in my practice that can be drastically reduced by

getting at the problem,  tight spasmed muscles inside and outside the Jaw and front

of neck.  Trigger point therapy and massage are effective ways to decrease the severe spasms in the jaw area and front of neck to permanently address your migraine pain.

Are you experiencing hand numbness and weakness? These symptoms are often labeled as carpal tunnel syndrome when it may actually be scalene entrapment. Scalene entrapment is when the upper part of the brachial plexus gets impinged by the lateral neck muscle called the scalene.  Stretch out the scalene and chest muscles as well as the forearm extensor and flexor muscles.

The most important stretch in my Stretch Away Muscle Pain system is the Lunge stretch.This stretch targets the psoas muscle, which is responsible for most low back problems and effects every major joint in our body.    When the psoas muscle gets too tight, it tilts our pelvis forward, causing poor posture and our trunk to be forward.  This makes muscles have to contract and puts marked stress on our back and other areas.It is the most important stretch of the Stretch Away Muscle Pain Stretching System.

The main cause of most neck pain is shortened neck, hip flexor and shoulder muscles. Poor posture is the result and puts the head in a forward position, causing neck muscles to have to contract to hold the head up.   Build up of toxins result and the person gets pain and headaches.  Long term compression on the vertebrae from tight muscles, breaks down the cervical and thoracic discs, causing bulging or herniated discs and degeneration to our spine.  Stretches are the key to get rid of your pain.  Elongate the tight muscles and restore joint mobility to get your posture back.

The main cause of  most low back pain is a shortened Psoas muscle.  This muscle

attaches to each of the low back vertebrae and causes compression to this area as

Most people don't know that you can reduce the size, appearance and sensitivity of your scar.  Scar tissue doesn't have to be ugly and disfiguring.   Scars don't have to be painful to the touch.  You can reduce the size, appearance and the sensitivity of the scar. The secret is reducing the binding of the scar tissue by getting circulation into and around it and loosening up the binding fibers of the scar tissue.  Massage and deep tissue work and stretching loosen up the binded fibers which lessens the pain and makes the scar tissue less raised.  Myfoascial release is very effectiive in breaking down scar tissue. 

Its easy.  Just perform deep tissue massage and stretching and break up the adhesions and binding of the scar to reduce the size and appearance of it.  By getting circulation into the scar, you will reduce the pain/sensitivity of it.
