Are you suffering from neck discomfort? Neck pain can be caused by various ways. The most common causes are pinched nerves, the imbalance of muscles poor posture, or trauma. Apart from pain, many suffer from regular bouts of tingling or stiffness. If your pain is lasting 7 weeks and more the pain is deemed to be “chronic” neck discomfort.
If you suffer from constant neck discomfort, you’re not the only one. Based on Harvard Health Publications, seven out of 10 Americans will suffer from neck pain at one point throughout their lives. Although many of us are susceptible to experiencing neck pain, it is important to be aware of the many methods to find relief. Our physical therapists utilize a variety of methods, such as the use of manual (hands onto) therapy as well as exercise for therapeutic purposes, ergonomic evaluation of your sitting position along with relaxation techniques and gentle stretching specifically for your needs to help you achieve the long-term alleviation of neck pain.
The most significant aspect for this customized approach is the fact that your program will be controlled, taught correctly and regularly assessed to monitor improvement. They will also teach you easy techniques for relaxation of muscles and reduce stress in order to reduce the pain. The physical therapy program will help you understand how your neck posture may cause discomfort, stress, and headaches. Therapists will show you what you can do to improve your strength to ease the discomfort and improve your function. A further important aspect of treatment is improving posture. Did you know that one of the primary causes of neck pain that is chronic is due to long hours of sitting in the front of the computer? The screen you are looking at for that long can cause problems due to poor posture, and this is frequently directly connected to neck discomfort. A therapist can assess your posture and instruct you how to sit at your desk and work on your device or stream online video in a way that is aligned.
