The Scalenes: A Pain in the Neck
Do you suffer from…….
- Neck pain?
- Arm Pain?
- Pins & Needles in the arm or hand?
- Numbness in the arm or hand?
If you have answered yes to any of these then the Scalene Muscles could be at fault….
The scalene muscles lie at the front of your neck and are in close proximity to the branch of nerves which supply the arm and hand. If the muscles become shortened and/or irritated they can compress these nerves and cause neurological symptoms such as radiating pain, numbness or coldness into the upper limb. The scalenes can also contribute to neck pain and headaches.
