Both are usually caused by repetitive movement and incorrect positioning of the head, neck, shoulder, arm and hand. Some good examples are:

  1. Holding the phone to shoulder w/ head.

  2. Holding a violin to your shoulder with head.


The symptoms are:

  • Pain around clavicle (collar bone between shoulder and neck)

  • Sometimes pain with movement of shoulder or head

  • Headaches

  • Sometimes pain radiates from neck or shoulder all the way down the arm and maybe fingers


Usually, the connective tissue has shortened, thickened around a bundle of nerves (bracio-plexis) as a result of repetitive movement.  The conventional treatment is surgery on the connective tissue that is pinching or entrapping a nerve. Usually, it is surgically cut.


Rolfing can stretch the connective tissue and free the nerve that is pinched. The result is no more pain.
