Treat your Neck Pain!

Neck Pain and Physical Therapy

The neck is an important structure as it provides support and mobility to the head, it can also be the source of great pain if under strain.  Neck pain can range from a minor annoyance, to excruciating pain, it can also be temporary or chronic. When neck pain is severe it can be debilitating and make it difficult to accomplish daily tasks.

 

There are a number of causes of neck pain, it can develop slowly as the result of poor posture and degeneration, or suddenly, like in the case of an accident.  Neck pain can also be the result of certain conditions, like meningitis, or certain cancers. Sometimes one of the discs that cushion the vertebrae get a tear, which causes the jelly-like substance inside the disc to bulge out, pressing on the nerves in the spinal canal. When this happens, it is called a herniated disc, and could be another cause of neck pain. People in certain professions could be at a higher risk of developing neck pain. Drivers, or people in jobs where you have to make the same repetitive motions, can have strain put on their neck. Sports players can experience neck pain from stain of use, or injury. While most neck pain is simply temporary and will go away on its own with self-care, sometimes further treatment is needed, such as physical therapy.

 

Physical therapist are experts on the body and how the musculoskeletal system works. They can help optimize the healing process and strengthen tissue. They will begin with a thorough evaluation and get to the root of what is causing your neck pain.  They will then develop a personalized treatment plan to get you on the road to recovery. Treatment may include targeted exercises, ultrasound technology to stimulate healing, and even massage therapy to alleviate pain and sore muscles. Your therapist may suggest lifestyle changes, like making adjustments to your desk, or chair, to make it more ergonomic, and little changes in your routine that may help prevent further injury.
