Neck Shoulder Pain

What Causes A Stiff Neck?

Although more common in adults, especially women between 30 and 50, anyone can develop neck pain at any age. Fortunately, most stiff neck patients do not require surgery in most cases and can find healing and relief via targeted physical therapy.

Physical Therapy For Neck Pain

During your initial consultation, your therapist will perform an examination, review any medical records that your referring physician may have provided, and ask questions to pinpoint just what is causing your neck pain. We also need to determine your range of motion and might measure your strength, posture, and tenderness to palpation.

This examination will help us devise a specialized plan that could include a variety of treatments depending on your unique situation.

  • Exercises
  • Posture Correction
  • Cervical Traction
  •  Massage Therapy
  • Joint Mobilization Techniques

Common Shoulder Injuries

As with the neck, shoulder pain can happen at any age. Work injuries, athletic accidents, and aging can all contribute to acute or chronic shoulder pain.

  • Rotator Cuff Injuries
  • Bursitis & Tendinitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • AC Joint Injuries
  • Tears & Strains

Physical Therapy For Shoulder Pain

As with any other type of injury, physical therapy for shoulder pain will start with a thorough examination and medical history. Your therapist will develop a plan to restore your mobility and help you find holistic healing and pain relief. If your condition requires surgery, then post-surgical physical therapy is still a vital part of your rehabilitation.

Your recovery will progress through stages, with different therapies applied as you make progress, and may include any or all of these:

  • Manual Therapy
  • Modalities (Heat & Ice)
  • Patient Education
  • Home Exercises
  • Stretching
  • Strength Training
