“Look Up To Permanent Pain Relief!” RELIEVING NECK PAIN


• Are You Hurting Your Neck While Sleeping? • Relieve Neck Pain In Minutes • Patient Success Spotlight

Neck pain can be a constant ache or sharp pain with movement, stopping you from enjoying life’s activities. Neck pain is very common affecting approximately2/3 rds of thepopulationatonepointoranother.Peoplewith neck pain suffer mainly from one of the following conditions: Degenerative Disc Disease The discs are the fluid filled sacs between the bones of your neck. The normal aging process shrinks the discs and dries them out. Repeated stressandstrainalsoweakens the tissues thatmakeupadisc.When this happens, the disc loses its ability to absorb shock. In turn, this causes rubbing and changes in the shape of the joints in your neck, which can be painful. Muscle Strain When there is an injury to the neck or you overuse the shoulder and neck muscles, a strain can occur. When this happens, the neck muscles may go into spasm to help support and protect the sore area. Mechanical Neck Pain Mechanical pain usually starts from changes in the neck joints. As discs start tocollapse, thespacebetween theneckbonesnarrows,and the joints

may become inflamed. The pain is usually chronic and is typically felt in themiddlepartof theneck.However, itmayspread from theneck into the upper back or to the outside of the shoulder in some cases. Radiculopathy Pressure or irritation on or around the nerves of the neck can affect the nerves’electricalsignals.Thepressureor irritationcanbefeltasnumbness on the skin, weakness in the muscles or pain along the path of the nerve.

We spend one third of our lives sleeping. Therefore, how you sleep and the bed you sleep on can have a dramatic effect on the support of your body. When you sleep you need to be aware of how your neck and spine aresupported. Therearemany different types of beds on themarket today which can be very confusing for consumers. The best type of bed is the one that you try out and feel most comfortable using. Typically, a bed that is firm underneath, with a softer top helps to provide support as well as contour your body. If your mattress is old, then think about investing in a new one so that your neck and spine are supported well. Thebestpositions tosleep in foryourspineareonyourbackorsides.Avoid sleepingonyourstomachsinceyourspineendsup twisted,especiallyyour neck.Overthehoursofrepetitivesleepingonyourstomach,youcandamage the joints of your spine and compress the nerves exiting your spine. Use a pillow to help support your body and take the weight of your legs off your spine. If you like to sleep on your back, place a pillow under the backs of your thighs and knees. This should place your knees in a slight, supported bend which takes pressure off your lower back. If you sleep on your side, be sure to put a pillow between your knees. This helps keep the alignment of your spine, and takes the pressure of your upper leg off the spine. Have 1-2 pillows under your head to keep your neck in proper alignment. If you need 2 pillows stagger them so that one pillow overlaps the other by one half. The lower half goes under the shoulders, while the upper half supports the neck. Our physical therapists at Complete Physical Rehabilitation can show you exercises, stretches and techniques to relieve your pain and prevent it from returning.

“I had pain in my neck which interfered with flexibility and mobility. I had difficulty turning my neck when driving and discomfort when carrying any extra weight. There was also discomfort during sleeping which caused a decrease in my sleep, overall. Now, I have less pain and increased flexibility and strength. My sleep is also much better due to less discomfort in my neck. The physical therapists are very dedicated and attentive to the patients and the staff are so friendly and pleasant. I highly recommend Complete Physical Rehabilitation. I am grateful that they have been a huge part of my healing process! - Judith R.
