Tight muscles in the neck and upper back are the most common cause of headaches in both kids and adults.

Impingement syndrome and bicep tendonitis are very common in lifting sports including CrossFit and Orange Theory Fitness.
Most of us have a tight upper back, a forward head posture, maybe slightly rounded shoulders and work at our computer way too much.
We finish work and head to the gym, throwing weights overhead and not paying quite enough attention to prepping for movement.
Then, our shoulder starts to pinch and hurt, usually on the top, front of back of the shoulder. We have to remember that the shoulder has this amazing dynamic movement, and is purely a musculoskeletal joint, meaning it is just held together with soft tissues.
Our shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint and if the ball is not sitting perfectly in the socket, and staying in the socket as we lift overhead, we get in trouble.
If our upper back does not move, or our shoulder blades do not move, we get in trouble. If your neck is stiff, your shoulder will get into trouble.
You need a skilled team to assess your shoulder and put all the components back together.
