Many doctors commonly overlook and misdiagnose this common condition worldwide. Doctors focus most of their attention to the spinal structures looking for herniated discs and pathological conditions in the spine. They commonly prescribe expensive diagnostic tests for unnecessary surgeries and procedures, raising your insurance premiums. The major nerves that come off the spine in the neck must first make its way between the anterior and medial scalenus muscles before it makes its way out to the body. Through chronic poor posture, poor ergonomics, forward head posture, rounded forward shoulders, these scalenus muscles are become shortened and contracted putting pressure on important and vital nerves. When these nerves are pinched and compressed, people will experience neck pain, mid back pain, chest pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, tingling, numbness and weakness.
