Is your neck mobility limited?

Many people wake up with stiffness in the neck that often goes away as they begin moving around.  However, some people wake up with neck stiffness that doesn’t seem to go away.  This may be because of several reasons, including limited cervical spine joint mobility, muscular tension, and even first rib stiffness.  Yes, you heard that right, first rib stiffness, which can often be helped with a mobilization from a physical therapist.  The reason for this is because there is a muscle that attaches into the first rib that assists in rotation of the neck.  When the rib is immobile and elevated it can limit rotation of this muscle.  Their are specific standards for the amount of rotation each individual should be able to rotate their neck.  If you feel limited in this very necessary motion, schedule an appointment today!
