“Complete Simple Errands Without Pain!” NECK PAIN & HEADACHES RELIEF
Do you find it hard to get comfortable at night because of the ache in your neck? Do you find your neck and shoulders just hurt when you try to move them in a certain direction? Many people suffer from chronic neck pain, tightness and frequent headaches. However, few get the needed attention to address the root cause of this problemand try tomask the symptoms with popping Advil or Tylenol. Since the root cause of the problem is not addressed, weakness of the neck and shoulder muscles increase, which can lead to headaches and even migraines. The neck is very complicated in its structure and is primarily made up of seven independently moving vertebrae or
bones. Most of the rotating of your head comes from the upper part of the neck. This is a very important part of your body since it is where the thickest part of the spinal cord goes through to the brain. It is also an important area that determines how your body balances. Main Causes of Neck Pain Neck pain can start for a number of reasons including: poor posture with sitting, car accidents, stress, injuries or even falls. Since the neck is where blood vessels are going through to your head, pain and tightness can cause spasms of the arteries around the nerves of the neck and head. This can cause headaches or even migraines.
“Nagging Neck Pain?”
HOW NECK PROBLEMS CAUSE HEADACHES Patients with neck problems can often experience pain, tingling or numbness, into the arms, hands and even fingers. This is because the nerves coming out of the spine in your neck supply your arms and hands. If you find this is occurring, it is important that you see one of the licensed physical therapists and spine experts at Synergy Therapeutic Group. There is a lot that you can do to help your neck pain. The key is preventing the neck pain from starting in the first place. However, our daily lives don’t always dictate what is good for our neck and shoulders. Our programs at Synergy Therapeutic Group were designed to help those with pain get out of pain and stay healthy. In today’s society we sit a lot in slouched positions which is not good for the neck, upper back and shoulders. Our jobs, driving in the car, picking up heavy objects and repetitive straining can hurt the neck over a period of time. Having the spine experts at Synergy Therapeutic Group examine your neck movement, strength and function can pinpoint the root cause of your neck pain or headaches, treat it and teach you how to prevent it from returning.

“I heard about Synergy Therapeutic Group for a long time from a friend. Although it had helped her greatly through a difficult time I was still skeptical that they could help me. I was in so much pain, I finally came in for a consultation. Driving was the worst! My pain level was an 8 out of 10 for eight months. I tried all traditional treatments: MRI, injections and pain medication, nothing helped more than a few days and I was running out of options.
