There are many reasons why a patient may seek medical attention from a physical therapist for neck pain, but the most common reason is for pain relief and improved range of motion. Often times cervical symptoms stem from poor posture habits that have weakened the musculature in the neck. Physical therapy can strengthen the muscles that support the neck, as well as provide exercises to improve range of motion and fix postural imbalances. After an initial evaluation in which the patient is asked to provide a detailed description of their current complaint, physical therapists can develop a Plan of Care {POC}. The POC will focus on reducing pain and inflammation, improved tissue and joint mobility, and neuromuscular re-education to improve movement and stability. 

patients with a cervical condition may experience the following symptoms:
  • Pain in various locations {i.e. head, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, upper back}
  • Headaches
  • Arm numbness and/or tingling
  • Hand numbness and/or tingling
  • Changes in grip strength
  • Difficulty with fine motor skills {i.e. zippers, buttons}
recommended physical therapy treatments:
  • Trigger Point Dry Needling
  • Joint Mobilization
  • Joint Manipulation
  • Stretching
  • Strengthening
  • Neuromuscular  Re-education
  • Soft tissue Mobilization
  • Neural Mobilization
  • Strain-Counterstrain
  • Functional Re-Training
