Levator Scapulae Pain


Hi CT,

I’ve been dealing with some chronic tightness/inflammation in my levator scapulae that causes impingement-like symptoms during certain movements. I found in some of your old posts that you have dealt with something similar in the past and wanted to know what you did to fix the problem?

Thanks in advance, and let me know if more info can help with an answer.


Damn, biceps pain gets multiple responses but no love for the levators, huh?

You’re breaking my heart, CT!

Jk…I know you’re a busy dude who already puts out loads of free content. Hope the family is well!


I normally never answer any injury related questions online. I feel that it irresponsible without assessing the individual. But the “biceps” question was in reality a technique question which is why I answered it.


Yeah the problem is that it could be caused by many things and we aren’t doctors… Is it’s chronic then go see one
