Improper posture is a leading contributor of head and neck pain, and headaches are a common symptom. The cumulative trauma we place on our spine with daily activities such as computer use, phone use, sleeping with improper pillows and general bending and lifting activities are factors contributing to neck pain.
Physical therapy utilizes proper stretching, strengthening, manual therapy and mobilization techniques to relieve head and neck pain.
Some of the most common causes of neck pain include:
Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD)
Herniated or Bulging Discs
Hyper (Too Much)/ Hypo (Too Little) Mobility of the Spine
Diagnostic tests include x-rays, MRIs and CT scans. A comprehensive physical therapy evaluation will assess posture, range of motion (ROM), strength, flexibility and spinal mobility.
