The Five Points of Contact
The nature of being a pilot requires continual turning and rotation of the back and neck to maintain awareness of the external environment. For many pilots, the development of neck and back pain is not uncommon.
Depending on what's going on in the body, there is a potential for neck and back pain to originate from shoulder injuries. Shoulder impingement, rotator cuff injuries, bursitis, etc, are common shoulder injuries. When left untreated, the shoulder trauma can begin to migrate and negatively influence other parts of the upper body. For this reason, its essential to treat the shoulders with care and to maximize range of motion health.
