Hands up who in this period of home-working has not complained about some musculoskeletal pain related to sedentary lifestyle and / or incorrect posture prolonged at the desk or mobile phone!
Among the musculoskeletal disorders reported in this period, one of the most common is certainly neck pain.
Characterized mainly by muscle tension and fatigue, neck pain starts at the level of the cervical spine and then spreads, in the most serious cases, to the shoulders and arms, thus limiting the head’s movements.
To plan the most effective therapy for the patient and avoid the chronicization of cervical spine pain, it is important to carry out a functional diagnosis of the specific pain location. In particular, assessing how the cervical spine muscles are recruited during head movements is essential to understand if any motor dysfunction is due to an alteration in the neck muscles’ activity.
To support the therapist in this decision-making process and verify the treatment’s effectiveness, BTS offers the CERVICAL SPINE MOBILITY functional protocol, which allows you to identify the possible motor alterations related to cervical spine disorders.
