Pinched courage, artery, or capillary?
I asked a physiotherapist to relieve some tension in my collar when lying down on my stomach. He told me I needed to turn around on my back and he went up astern my head and instead of giving me a massage resembling I thought he would, he dug his fingers into the holes to the sides of my neck and I felt him flicking around ligaments close to guitar strings and squeezing something until it really hurt, he said he’ll just apply pressure here until the tension go away. I asked him what he did and he said it’s “acupressure”. He did this almost a week ago and I felt pain contained by that area that day when I brought my shoulder up to my commander and shortened the muscle, the next day and up until in a minute I've began getting some heat going up my collar mainly on that side. When I tense up my neck ligaments it hurts to the left. Today I was at the gym and after a few minutes on the treadmill I have sharp chest pains. Could he have tied up or misplaced ligaments, muscles, etc, or pinched a nerve, artery, or artery? Thanks
he probably pushed too hard & cause the muscles to tighten in response to the pressure points. "acupressure" should be firm, but not painful. acupressure is also of late holding points, not "flicking around muscles & ligaments". it sounds like he was doing deeper muscle releases- and you stipulation to be careful not to go too gaping too quickly or it causes more backache.
get a regular masssage next time.
your chest spasm is unrelated.
