Physical therapy remains to be one of the best treatments around for neck pain. It helps to relieve the pain in general and it also tells you more about what is causing the pain and what you can do about it.
Physical therapy works by strengthening the muscles in the body and it also helps you to gain more strength in your muscles, ligaments and tendons as well.
Our therapists will start by giving you an initial evaluation. This is designed to help you to understand the problems that you are experiencing and it also helps us to know how we should treat it as well. If your neck pain was caused by a trauma, we may need to talk with your doctor about this first.
Our next step is to work with you to create your own personalised treatment plan. We will also give you some exercises that you can do at home, as this will help to increase your stability, strength, flexibility and other movement areas.
Most physical therapy sessions are normally under an hour in total but in some instances they can be less. You should note that each session is different and the amount of sessions that you need will largely depend on the amount of treatment you require. Some people may only need a couple of sessions whereas other people may need significantly more.
Your therapist will show you how you can avoid any future problems by showing you how to stand properly. They will also show you how to sit properly as well, and with proper posture. Your therapist may also evaluate the ergonomics of your property and where you work to make sure that the area in which you work doesn’t compromise your treatment.
You may also be given aerobic exercises because these can help you to decrease neck pain. They can also help you to put less stress on your neck in the long term and it also helps you to improve at a rate that suits you.
