VDT (Video Display Terminal) Syndrome is common to people who work at desks all day. Looking at a computer monitor for prolonged periods of time strains the cervical spine, especially the C5, C6 and C7 regions. Shoulder blade pain is also caused by this position. Overusing laptops, netbooks, ebooks, tablets and smart phones, all lead to straining the cervical spine and shoulders.
Other areas we treat are TMJ symptoms, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff pain and tear, shoulder bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, brachial plexus injury, myofascial pain syndrome, and turtle neck syndrome.
Treating Neck and Shoulder Pain
The neck and shoulder region is an integrated region consisting of multiple connected muscle fiber, fascia ligaments and tendons. Thus, focusing on one joint or muscle tissue cannot fully treat neck and shoulder pain.
Direct muscle acupuncture can immediately relieve the tension of specific muscle tissues and fascias, and will improve your range of motion (ROM) within a few sessions.
