Treatment For Your Neck Pain to Help Regain Your Movement
Evaluating your Neck Pain
To evaluate and treat neck pain, we begin with a thorough discussion of how the problem began, how it impacts your life, and exactly how it feels. We will evaluate your sitting and standing posture, your spinal mobility and stability, your shoulder blade and rib cage, and core strength. During your treatment we look at each muscle and joint in the neck and determine a root cause and treatment plan for your injury.
Gentle Treatments to Ease Your Neck Discomfort
We provide gentle mobilizations to ease the joints back in to proper alignment as needed. There is no sudden or jerky movements in this and you will not hear an audible “crack” from a mobilization. As needed we offer therapies such as ultrasound, electrotherapy (TENS, EMS, muscle stim) and heat. In addition we will consult with you about your sleeping position, pillow and mattress as needed. As part of our process we provide a hands on manual treatment to release the muscles and facial tissue and gentle mobilizations to ease the joints back in to proper alignment as needed.
Exercises to Treat Your Neck Pain in Your Home
We want to make sure you will be able to improve your recovery while you are at home so you will be taught a series of exercises to perform to help to relieve the cause of this pain. This may include strengthening your neck, shoulders, back and/or core, stretching your neck, and chest, and improving your posture.
Our goal is to empower you by ensuring you understand the cause of your injury and the necessary steps to correct it once and for all!
