Common spinal misalignments can cause neck and back pain. Your neck protects your spinal cord and spinal nerves, while supporting and balancing the weight (nearly 10 pounds) of your head. Poor posture, wear and tear, injury, stress, and tension can strain or damage vital parts of your neck. Your neck is aligned in a natural curve at the top of your spine. Damage to your neck’s natural curve can cause painful problems including headaches, blurry vision, and hand and arm weakness. We first have to understand the underlying cause of your neck pain before we can treat the problem. Muscle-related pain can be treated with over the counter pain medicines and ointments. If the pain is more severe, stronger pain medications may be prescribed. A compression syndrome, herniated cervical discs, or cervical fractures can always cause severe pain, headaches, and shoulder and arm weakness or tingling. Movements may be restricted or painful. The County Ridge certified physical therapist may recommend wearing a cervical collar to stabilize the neck and give the soft tissues time to heal. In severe cases, surgery may be the best option.
The County Ridge certified physical therapist begins your assessment with a thorough examination of your cervical spine to determine the cause of your discomfort. Once a diagnosis has been made, we always offer non-invasive approaches, such as physical therapy, before recommending surgical options. Our highly skilled team of physical therapists will work with you one-to-one to create a personalized rehabilitation program. Our goals are to relieve your pain and get you fully functioning as soon as possible. Give us a call today to set up an appointment and take the first step to treat your neck pain.
