Neck Physical Therapy

I have had chronic neck and back issues for as long as I can remember. So far, this has been the only place that has relieved me of my pain and who showed me things to do at home to help myself. I am so happy that I chose to have my PT done by Therapydia Nola. Jonathan gives you the utmost attention during your session and his method of treatment is very easy to follow and the results are very positive. The atmosphere in the facility is very pleasant also.

I found the therapist to be outstanding. His personal attention is awesome, and he really listens to your issue. You progress at a comfortable pace. The atmosphere in the office is welcoming and pleasant while you are being treated. I feel they were instrumental in relieving my neck and arm pain. Thanks for all you did for me.

Jonathan does an extremely great job of taking physical therapy to a level that I have never experienced. His expertise in adjustments of my muscles and joints have allowed me to achieve greater flexibility than I have had in years. I am 71 years of age and have a lot of lower back and neck and shoulder pain. With regular treatments, I am now have much less pain and have gone on a maintenance program with him. I will recommend Jonathan to everyone I know. Also, his receptionist, Heidi, is extremely friendly and courteous in helping me with scheduling and is always in a happy mood.

What Causes Neck Pain?

Neck pain is a frequent and often debilitating condition—it is second in total workers compensation costs in the United States. A variety of mechanisms for neck pain have been proposed such as arthritis, trauma, cervical disc, and myofascial pain syndrome. Neck pain is classified by the effect on the patient. For example, one type of neck pain with headaches is referred to as a cerviocranial headache while neck pain with radiating pain is often referred to as spondylosis with radiculopathy or cervical disc disorder with radiculopathy. Oftentimes, neck pain not only affect your neck but also causes pain in your back and shoulder. All of these neck pains including cervicalgia can be treated with physical therapy.

Possible causes:

  • Poor work station ergonomics with repetitive activities
  • May or may not have specific changes to neck structures as noted on imaging
  • Heavy lifting and manual work
  • Trauma such as car accident
  • Stress leading to overworked muscles
  • Signs & Symptoms

      Generally, neck pain is felt directly around the neck area but it could also be felt through the upper arm, shoulder blade, forearm, or hand. Therefore, neck pain can be felt in secondary areas beyond the neck as well. Neck conditions have the potential to become chronic if the source of the pain isn’t treated.

      • Limitations in cervical range of motion with pain
      • Decreased coordination and decreased endurance of deep neck flexor musculature
      • Decreased flexibility of the neck musculature
      • Upper extremity symptoms that are aggravated with specific neck symptoms
      • Rounded shoulder position from cycling or bodybuilding

    Why PT?

      Addressing neck pain involves a multi-faceted approach to treatment. A full spinal assessment is needed to get to the root of the neck pain. A physical therapist looks for weaker links in the chain of pain and puts together a plan of action on how to treat your condition. An initial spinal assessment could involve looking at the state of your tissues, joints, and spinal alignment while collecting baseline measurements of your range of motion, mobility, flexibility, and levels of pain.

      • Manual therapy to manipulate the cervical spine and surrounding areas such as the shoulders in order to increase your neck’s natural range of motion as well as breakdown any damaged tissue.
      • Postural training to educate you on how to set-up your workstation to make sure you’re not applying excess strain on certain parts of your neck.
      • Custom exercises to strengthen muscles around your neck and shoulder.
