ProActive Sports Rehab: Relieving Neck Pain

STAY A NECK AHEAD OF YOUR CHRONIC PAIN! THE NEWSLETTER ABOUT YOUR HEALTH AND CARING FOR YOUR BODY N E W S L E T T E R This review analyzes a number of studies providing evidence for manual therapy and exercise treatments for patients with different stages of non-specific neck pain. Researchers pulled information from Medline, Cochrane-Register-of-Controlled-Trials, PEDro, and Embase. According to the researchers, one of the major takeaway points listed in the conclusion is that “combining different forms of [manual therapy] with exercise is better than [manual therapy] or exercise alone.” Results from the 23 studies chosen for review demonstrated patient success across the board when pairing manual therapy with targeted exercises for neck pain. Results conclude that physical therapy is a proven successful treatment for patients suffering from neck pain, and manual therapy and exercise methods are the most effective in helping patients regain their optimum levels of function. The systematic review mentioned above verifies that manual therapy and exercise are two of the most effective treatments for relieving neck pain in patients. At ProActive Physical Therapy, those are two methods that we commonly incorporate into treatment plans for neck pain relief, and we have noticed significant success in them. • Patient Success Spotlight • Practice News

Are you living with the irritating effects of neck pain? Approximately one- third of the population will experience neck pain in any given year, which can get worse if left untreated. However, at ProActive Physical Therapy, we want to do everything we can to help you avoid that. The neck is extremely important in the overall posture of the body. Where the head and neck move, so does the rest of the body. Changes in the alignment of your neck can cause a variety of symptoms such as neck tension, headaches, migraines, and even radiating pain or numbness to the arms and hands. It is no secret that the neck is an integral area of everyday movement, and pain can prevent you from functioning properly in day-to-day life. Fortunately, physical therapy can help you regain your normal function. In fact, thousands of people are able to find relief from their neck pain every year with the help of physical therapy. How does physical therapy help with neck pain? Physical therapy has proven successful in relieving long-term symptoms in patients experiencing both acute and chronic neck pain. This evidence is further illustrated in a 2017 qualitative systematic review conducted by the National Institutes of Health, titled “The efficacy of manual therapy and exercise for treating non-specific neck pain: A systematic review.” INSIDE : • How Will ProActive PT Help Relieve Your Neck Pain? • Exercise Of The Month
