We can help you with a wide variety of neck & upper back injuries. Whether it's providing hands-on techniques to improve mobility and reduce pain or empowering you with exercise programs to build strength, our team can be your solution to getting back to pain-free movement.
Here are just a few of the common injuries we diagnose and treat in our clinics.
- Whiplash: The neck is often violently moved in car accidents. This over stretches & damages muscles & soft tissue on the front side of the neck. Hands-on techniques to improve spinal and muscle mobility can reduce pain in the short term, and stabilization and strengthening exercise programs can help to restore your neck to pain-free function.
- Postural Strains & Overuse: Sitting in poor postures or for prolonged periods of time is a common cause for neck pain. Your physical therapist will teach how you to manage your posture. Upper back and neck stretching and strengthening exercises can greatly improve postural related pain.
- Nerve Pain: The nerve roots exiting your neck can be pinched by disc bulges, stenosis or arthritis. Strengthening, stretching, and hands-on techniques to improve muscular and joint mobility can be effective in decreasing nerve pain and preventing it from returning.
- Rib Pain: Upper back pain is often related to dysfunctional rib movement. Hands on treatment to improve rib mobility can be very effective at resolving this pain. Appropriate upper back and neck strengthening can also help the muscles feel looser as well as keep the pain from returning.
If you're not moving as well as you'd like, we are here to help you in getting back to moving at your best!
