The scalene muscles are prime contributors to thoracic outlet syndrome, neck, upper back, chest, shoulder, arm pain. When a person has a forward head posture, their scalene muscles are going to tighten up. This eventually leads to what we call trigger points, or more commonly known as 'muscle knots'.
The first part is to self treat the scalene muscles simply by using your hands and finding the muscle knots or trigger points that are producing your pain. If you find a spot, gently press into it for 30 seconds to a minute. The pain should begin to decrease.
Next, it's best to stretch the scalene muscle. We go through this in another video.
However, the most overlooked part of becoming pain free is to strengthen the scalene muscles. For long term relief, this will build up the endurance of the muscles.
