Neck Pain

Neck pain and discomfort can be caused by many different things, such as:

  • Overuse
  • Improper posture
  • Inactivity
  • Injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Compressed nerves

Spending hours hunched over a computer or workbench can cause strains to the muscles in your neck.  The pain and discomfort frequently radiate to nearby areas like the shoulders, arms, and hands, and can even cause headaches or migraines.

Many patients experience pain and discomfort as a result of poor posture, prolonged sitting, and inactivity. High Line Rehab PT specializes in treating all types of neck pain with personalized one-to-one treatment plans.

Neck pain can limit your mobility and make it difficult to complete even the simplest daily tasks. Although most cases clear up with a few days of at-home care, some patients require additional treatment for effective relief.

If your pain persists, High Line Rehab PT can help you achieve a quick, successful recovery.

Although the symptoms can be severe or alarming, it is rarely caused by a serious condition.

Treatment

If your neck pain is accompanied by numbness, weakness, or shooting pain, seek medical attention as soon as possible. You should also seek immediate medical attention if you experience pain following a sports injury, fall, or car accident.

Treatment begins with an in-depth evaluation. Your physical therapist examines your spine, evaluates your strength, movement, walking, and coordination. After that, a postural screening is performed to pinpoint the exact cause of your pain.

High Line Rehab PT offers personalized treatment plans for each patient. Depending on your needs, the treatment may require a number of therapeutic techniques, including:

  • Myofascial release
  • Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Manual therapy
  • Posture alignment
  • Zero-gravity postural training

High Line Rehab PT provides customized exercise programs to help you strengthen your neck muscles and avoid future pain and injury. The practice also teams up with Floating Lotus wellness center to provide alternative therapies like acupuncture.
