Neck Pain & Injury

Neck pain is pain that occurs anywhere from the bottom of your head to the top of your shoulders. It may spread to the upper back or arms and may cause limited neck and head movement.

Melinda G.

Diagnosis/Condition:
Muscle Pull / Cervical Strain

Physical Therapy Outcomes:
Completely healed.

Additional Comments:
The treatment was excellent. My injury was treated with therapy at the facility and I was given exercises to assist my recovery at home. The information on changing habits to prevent this from reoccurring was a benefit that was unexpected but very much appreciated.

Neck pain is a common problem, especially in older adults. About 50% of people older than 50 have neck pain at some time. Common causes of neck pain include the following: arthritis (degenerative disc disease, degenerative joint disease), whiplash injury (car accident, fall, abuse), repetitive stress injury (postural strain while working or driving), poor head and neck support while sleeping, and eye strain.

Neck Pain Testimonial

Diagnosis / Condition:
Really severe neck pain for six months - could not turn neck or sleep.

Physical Therapy Outcomes:
Since going to physical therapy, I have regained all function in my neck that I didn't have before. I couldn't even sleep one hour at night. The first treatment gave me relief!

Additional Comments:
It was a great experience! I would recommend everyone with joint or any kind of pain to come here. Everyone was so nice and really made the experience a good one!

Physical therapy is considered a comprehensive and conservative treatment for neck pain and is most effective when neck pain is addressed at the onset of symptoms. Physical therapy treatments are directed at alleviating pain and muscle spasms, promoting tissue healing, restoring proper joint mobility of the spine, coordinating muscular control of the spine and eliminating aggravating factors such as poor work ergonomics.

"In January of 2006, I was referred to Advanced Physical Therapy Center due to chronic neck pain. Because of the condition of my neck, surgery was not an option. The pain was severe and was disrupting my sleep, interfering with my independence and preventing me from socializing.

After a series of physical therapy treatments, I am now able to confidently take care of myself.

I HAVE A LIFE! I travel, I am an active church member and I even lead an exercise class in my community pool!

In Feb. 2007, after my total knee replacement, I returned to the friendly atmosphere at Advanced Physical Therapy Center with excellent results."
