The source of cervical neuropathy is inflammation in the muscles of the upper body region. Nerves pass through or under the upper body muscles. This nerve pain in the arm region results from nerves in the neck-shoulder-chest complex being compressed. Therefore, the solution is to elongate the upper body muscles back to normal position. If this sounds too easy to be true, the main question is how does one reshape compressed muscles well enough to solve arm nerve pain? A unique method of dynamic stretching, called Active Isolated Stretching, is capable of solving cervical nerve pain that is felt in the arm, hand, or fingers.
Nerves in the arm run alongside muscles in the arm
Let’s follow the pathway of the nerves of the arm region. Nerves lie underneath or pass through muscles of the body. Muscular inflammation or tightness can result from repetitive motion, poor posture, sports, accidents, or aging. These abnormalities in muscles are common. What is uncommon is finding a detailed method of repairing muscles so that they are thoroughly smoothed out. Deep tissue massage can be helpful, but the kneading motion of massage does not fully restore the muscles to their normal length. Furthermore, many muscles of the shoulder-arm complex are too difficult to elongate with massage methods. The bicep muscle of the arm is one of the most difficult muscles in the body to stretch. It cannot be elongated through massage. And the bicep is a critical muscle to repair in arm nerve pain cases.
Nerve pain in the arm involves rigid neck muscles
Nerve pain in the arm involves nerves originating in the neck and passing through the arm. Many of these nerves start at the C4, C5, C6, C7, C8 region of the cervical discs. These nerves are underneath the sternocleidomastoid and scalene muscles of the neck. They then pass through the shoulder-arm complex. At this juncture, the nerves pass underneath or through the muscles of the chest, shoulder, and arm muscles. Some of these muscles include pectoralis minor, deltoid, biceps, triceps, and corocobrachialis. The way to solve nerve pain in the arm is to follow the trail of muscles that the nerves pass underneath. Completely lengthen all the muscles that follow the pathway of the nerves of the arm. By elongating the muscles of the arm, shoulder, chest and neck, the source of pressure on the nerves is removed.
Sounds too simple to be true
This is a very very simple concept. The solution involves a highly efficient form of muscular stretching called Active Isolated Stretching. This simple solution to cervical neuropathy pain has not been given more publicity because it does not benefit the coffers of the pharmaceutical industry. Therefore, publicity of this solution must be spread at a grass roots level. If we employ Active Isolated Stretching methods to nerve pain, the result is that muscles following the pathway of the nerves of the arm will be completely lengthened. This action will remove nerve impingement. The source of arm nerve pain will be gone.
How do you know if this method will work for your arm nerve pain? Ask yourself if your neck is stiff? Do you have muscular pain in the neck or shoulders? Does your head lurch ahead of your shoulders, in a forward-head posture? Are you developing a small hump in the back of your neck? These are a few signs that muscular stiffness is causing nerve pain in your arm.
Causes of nerve pain in the arm
Commonly, people who experience arm nerve pain will work long hours at a computer with their head lurching forward to see the screen. Women with large breasts will have their head pulled downwards by the weight of their breasts, causing a muscular strain around the neck and shoulders. Commonly people with nerve pain in the arm will also develop a hump in the back of the neck called kyphosis or dowager’s hump. Any activity that causes poor posture in the upper body can contribue to nerve pain in the arm. Gravity is another factor. The force of gravity pulls our body downwards. As people age, muscles get weaker and the downward pull of gravity becomes more pronounced. This action creates poor posture and a greater possibility of experiencing dysfunction in the upper body.
Cervical neuropathy is a muscular shortness problem. For that reason, the best treatment will come from an expert on muscle lengthening. Active Isolated Stretching is the method that will be highly beneficial for people suffering from arm nerve pain. The solution involves isolating and lengthening numerous muscles of the upper body. AIS treatment first involves assisted stretching to restore posture to normal position, these corrections can be maintained by AIS self-stretching and AIS strength training. Because the process is so detailed, session length may last a few hours. Productive changes will usually be experienced after one or two sessions.
