The Reality of Neck Pain

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 shed light on the widespread issue of neck pain. Especially for anyone who enjoys a good game of tennis, pickleball or golf, persistent neck pain can be a real hindrance. Instead of getting lost in the sea of online symptom checkers, consider a physical therapy based approach that is tailored to your unique needs.

If you’ve experienced neck pain, you know it can be challenging and painful to move in certain directions, which can be very problematic for basic activities like driving, walking, or even sitting at a computer for long periods of time. Neck pain often stems from our everyday habits, such as prolonged smartphone or computer use.

Continuously looking down at our screens places undue strain on the muscles responsible for holding our heads up. Over time, this strain can surpass the muscles’ capacity, leading to pain and even headaches. A seasoned physical therapist can provide targeted exercises to bolster these muscles. They’ll also offer invaluable advice on posture and craft a personalized treatment plan.

More than just a fleeting ache, neck pain can significantly impact daily activities and restrict physical activities over time, which is why it’s important to seek effective treatment and solutions.
