Motion Matters PT: Relieving Neck Pain

NEWSLETTER The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body


Neck pain can be a literal pain in the neck! A few years ago, I had neck pain and upper back pain that wasn’t going away. Given my occupation as a Physical Therapist I was all too familiar with my symptoms. Luckily, I was able to see one of our Physical Therapists for treatment and with the right exercises, massage and habit changes I was back to being pain free! Neck issues can sometimes be complicated because it can involve not only the neck bones but also the upper back or thoracic spine bones, shoulders and shoulder blades! There are many muscles and joints in this area and they each

play a role inmobility. Another key is to look at your habits and postures. It’s important to consider the positions you encounter during the day but also at night, such as the type of pillow you are using. If you happen to sit at a computer for part of the day having the right keyboard and mouse set up can also become important. Call us today to schedule your first visit with one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy, you will be glad you did!
