Neck, Shoulders and Thorax Health

The Solution to Your Neck, Shoulder and Thorax Pain

The neck’s primary job is to hold up the head, which weighs 10 – 11 pounds. Think about it. That’s two large bags of flour, ALL the time.

Besides this fundamental task, athletes ask a lot more of these parts, including swiveling on a dime, leading the gaze, and establishing direction. Add the aero position many triathletes assume on a bike, and the strength required to support the horizontal body in water while moving the shoulders… you have a recipe for disaster. 

When you’re not training, you’re using your phone, viewing a computer at a desk, washing the dog, or simply driving. We demand amazing things from the neck, shoulders and thorax!

The bones and muscles controlling movement don’t get a rest as long as you’re awake. It’s no wonder this area is one of the most common sources of discomfort –– even if you’ve never sustained an injury. 

Dr. Ben Anderson’s program supports the natural healing process of your body and gets you back to the lifestyle you love. 

The techniques demonstrated in the videos and accompanying workbook can easily be done at home. Best of all, you don’t need expensive body work or equipment – just a foam roller or ball.

The Solution Series program originated from Ben’s desire to heal his own health issues.

Although Ben serves his patients with treatments that relieve and correct common neck, shoulder and thorax injuries, he maintains that 90% of these healing methods are easily done by the client herself. They are all included here.

This is the information you’ve been looking for.
