Neck pain can be a serious problem that may limit your ability to perform normal, everyday tasks. Because it is less protected than the rest of the spine, the neck can be vulnerable to injury and disorders that produce pain and restrict motion. For many people, neck or cervical pain is a temporary condition that disappears with time. Others need medical diagnosis and treatment to relieve their symptoms.
Shoulder pain can be misdiagnosed when in fact, the pain is actually emanating from the neck. Our highly-skilled physical therapists are able to identify the actual root cause of the problem with a thorough evaluation. In addition, neck muscles can be strained from poor posture — whether it’s leaning over your computer or hunching over your workbench. A proper ergonomically correct work station is very important to help prevent further injury/symptoms.
