Head & Neck Pain

Cervicocranialgia (CA) - Complaints of a dull, drilling pain appearing in the mornings, primarily in the occipital (base of the head) area, the neck, and the shoulder. It is also accompanied by stiffness of the neck. Pain increases when the head is bent, during coughing and sneezing, or while laughing.

Anterior Scalene Muscle Syndrome (SMS) - Pain in the side of the cervical (neck) region. Pain increases at night, during deep breathing, when turning or bending the head to the unaffected side, and when the arm is abducted. The pain spreads to the shoulder, armpit and lateral part of the thoracic (rib) cage. Many patients will complain of numbness and paraesthesia on the ulnar edge of the hand (hypothenar and 4th & 5th fingers) and arm. 

Trapezius Muscle Syndrome (TMS) - Upper portion of the trapezius muscle pain is located in the neck and radiates to the temporal and occipital areas as well as to the lower jaw, causing severe headaches. Specific symptoms are increasing pain during the turning of the head to the opposite, unaffected side.

The Lower Portion of the trapezius muscle, pain is located between the scapula and sometimes has a burning character. It becomes worse with head and upper torso flexion.

Spasmodic Torticollis (ST) / Wry Neck - Characterized as having an acute muscle spasm of the posterior cervical muscles that brings the head to laterally rotate to one side or even extension. Moving the head from the contracted position or actively contracting muscle can be quite painful. Torticollis / Wry Neck is often developed from sleeping in the wrong position or holding your head in the head and shoulder phone grasping position, sending the muscles into an acute spasm as a result.

Whiplash - A rapid back and forth movement that happens to the cervical (neck) region. Often occurring during sudden impacts such as a motor vehicle accident or in gladiator type contact sports. In some instances muscle spasm and pain does not occur immediately, but may set in days later.

Arm & Hand Pain

Radial Nerve Neuralgia (RNN) - Nerve pain that descends/radiates from the rear neck down the medial side of the humerus/upper arm, down the rear surface of the elbow, down the lateral border of the radius/lower arm to the 1st and 3rd finger and half of the 4th finger.

Ulnar Nerve Neuralgia (UNN) - Nerve pain that descends/radiates from the lateral(outside) of the neck down the medial/middle side of the humerus (upper arm), passing the middle side of the elbow, down the ulna (lower arm) entering the palm to the 4th and 5th finger.

Median Nerve Neuralgia (MNN) - Nerve pain that descends/radiates from the from side of the neck, descending medially to the humerus (upper arm), entering the forearm through the cubital (elbow) fossa. At the forearm, it descends between the ulna and the radius (2 bones of the lower arm), enter the Palmar hand through the carpal tunnel of the hand.

Glute, Hip & Leg Pain

Sciatic Nerve Neuralgia (SNN) Sciatica - Nerve pain that originates from the lower third of the gluteal area and radiate down to the biceps femoris/hamstrings (rear leg) and foot. Patients suffer from motor deficit of the leg and foot muscles. They also have strong pain in the seated position as well as when standing from the seated position. Patients in several cases became partially disabled.

Piriformis Muscle Syndrome (PMS) - Signs and symptoms of PMS is a combination of lumbosacral pain, local pain in the piriformis muscle, and different compression syndromes. Clients will complain about a dull, pulling pain in the lower back, gluteal, area, regions of the sacro-iliac, and hip joints. Pain increases during standing, squatting, or when crossing one’s legs. Pain radiates to the groin, hip joint, and posterior surface of the knee joint.

Femoral Nerve Neuralgia (FNN) - Complaint of burning pain, paraesthiesia, and numbness on the anterior (front) and medial (middle) surfaces of the thigh. There are also complaints of increased pain when pressure is applied along the pathway of the nerve or squeezing of the quadriceps muscle.

Obturator Nerve Neuralgia (ONN) - Complaint of pain, numbness, or paraesthesia, along with sensory abnormalities located in a small area on the medial surface of the lower 1/3 of the thigh and hip joint. An important sign is pain in the hip joint. Pain usually is intense and has a burning character. In the case of osteoarthritis, the pain is dull becoming worse during movement.

Low Back Pain

Iliopsoas Muscle Syndrome (IMS) - A combination of lower back pain and lower abdominal pain which increases in a vertical position and decreases in a recumbent (side lying) position. There is sometimes a complaint of weakness, numbness and paraesthisia on different areas of the lower limb.

Lumbalgia (LA) - Complaints of pain occurring after sitting for a long period of time such as a long drive, an unusual movement and/or sitting in an uncomfortable position for a long period of time. Clients complain of pain being less painful when walking up the street and worse when walking down the street. The pain in the lumbo-sacral (low back) area is dull and increases slowly. It increases and radiates down in the vertical position, when bending, walking, or running. However, pain has been reported to decrease significantly during resting hours.
