Physical Therapy should not be a pain in the neck…
May 12, 2017

Low back and neck pain are common ailments for many people, old and young. Many factors can contribute to back and neck pain including poor posture, improper lifting technique, sporting activities, and stress. These factors can harm the neck, and upper and lower back. Studies have shown that physical therapy can be a very effective and low cost first step in reducing or eliminating back and neck pain. Seeing a physical therapist can also eliminate the need for medication and/or more extensive procedures down the road. A physical therapy plan can decrease this pain and improve function through stretching and strengthening of the supportive muscles of the spine and when needed, relaxation of muscles in spasm. Physical therapists can also create a program that the patient can perform at home to help prevent future recurrences. The benefits of seeing a physical therapist early for back and neck pain includes decreased overall treatment time, faster rehabilitation and recovery, and it improvement with chronic conditions thought to be permanent.
