Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

The leading causes of neck pain are soft-tissue abnormalities, usually due to prolonged wear and tear. Your soft tissues include muscles and ligaments, but neck pain also can be related to problems with a bone or disc.

You may also develop neck pain because of an injury or a sprain. Trauma to your cervical spine can cause or exacerbate existing issues.

How are headaches linked to neck pain?

Some headaches are cervicogenic in nature, meaning they originate from your cervical spine. The key to relieving headaches in such cases is to correct the source of the problem affecting the vertebrae in your neck.

The team at Therapeutic Rehab Specialists has performed university research to come up with effective nonsurgical treatments that may give you relief from cervicogenic headaches.

How is neck pain diagnosed?

At Therapeutic Rehab Specialists, your practitioner asks a series of questions to understand how and when the pain started, whether it’s new or chronic, and other questions to understand your condition and overall health.

Your visit also includes an in-depth muscular, joint, and biomechanical exam. In some cases, they suggest additional exams or imaging tests to confirm your diagnosis.

What are treatments for neck pain?

Once your practitioner has diagnosed the root cause of your neck pain, they recommend a comprehensive plan to address your condition.

Although your plan is customized to your ailment, it generally emphasizes manual therapy and corrective exercises, while also focusing on correcting faulty postures and movement patterns to address the root cause of the dysfunction.

The goal at Therapeutic Rehab Specialists is to prevent and treat ongoing and future musculoskeletal problems rather than simply treating the surface-level symptoms.

Your treatment plan may include a device called a Total Neck Trainer™, which uses resistance to promote neck strength. The therapy may address headaches and relieve pain related to whiplash, among other benefits.

You don’t need to suffer from neck pain. Instead, call Therapeutic Rehab Specialists or book a consultation online for treatment to address the root cause of your condition.
