There’s a long list of potential causes of your neck pain. These include:

  • 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. Neck pain frequently radiates to nearby areas like the shoulders, arms, and hands, and can even cause headaches or migraines.

Many patients experience neck pain 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 of neck pain clear up with a few days of at-home care, some patients require additional treatment for effective relief.

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

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

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 neck pain following a sports injury, fall, or car accident.

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

High Line Rehab PT offers personalized treatment plans for each patient. Depending on your needs, treatment for your neck pain 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 neck pain. The practice also teams up with Floating Lotus wellness center to provide alternative therapies like acupuncture.
