Upper Trapezius Release – Trigger Point Release Neck Pain Relief

Your Upper Trapezius Muscle works to shrug
your shoulder and can cause neck pain due to having Trigger Points, more commonly referred
to as knots. To find these areas, feel around your Upper
Trapezius muscle until you feel a tender spot. Press down on this spot and tilt your head
to the opposite side. You progress this release further by rotating
your head up and down. Perform this technique until relief is felt. This is an incorrect way to perform this and
can lead to more pain! The same technique can be performed by your
healthcare provider. Once they locate the spot they will passively
move your head into position. It’s important to perform until relief is
felt. So we can continue to make these free educational

  1. I have struggled with trapezius muscle pain for years and sometimes is completely debilitating. This fixed a spasm I’ve had for a couple days in SECONDS. Thousands of dollars on chiropractic work, doctors, emergency room visits and medication. I’m almost mad 😂😂😂

  2. Thanks for video but very limited info on what is probably the most common area for tension in the human body. Using two fingers is not going to apply nearly enough pressure to release a hard knot.
