Eliminating Neck Pain Naturally
Neck pain can be sudden and related to an injury or motor vehicle accident. Additionally, chronically poor posture, poor ergonomics, sleeping habits, and muscle imbalances present in your neck, shoulders, and upper back can contribute to cervical pain and limited mobility.
The conditions we treat in physical therapy include an array of neck and upper spinal dysfunctions including:
Tension headaches, migraine headaches
Loss of full neck functionality, including difficulty turning one’s head completely
Soreness in the neck, shoulder and upper back
Stabbing pains, especially in the neck
Weakness in the shoulders and arms
Pain radiating from the neck and shoulders to the fingertips
In addition to these physically painful symptoms, many who struggle with chronic headaches will develop additional symptoms, such as dizziness, nausea, impeded vision, difficulty concentrating, severe fatigue, and even difficulty sleeping.
How Physical Therapy Can Diagnose & Manage Neck Pain
Once we’ve pinpointed the main cause of your neck pain, stiffness, and headaches, we’ll develop a treatment plan with you. In your PT sessions, we’ll utilize highly skilled manual techniques that promote proper cervical alignment and mobility. In addition, we utilize soft tissue massage and release techniques to promote optimal tissue healing and long term health. Furthermore, we’ll provide key exercises to build strength and flexibility in your shoulders and postural muscles. Our team of physical therapists will help you learn how to better position yourself during your daily life to avoid relapses, including ergonomic and postural restoration tips.
