At some point or another, we will all experience neck pain. If you have ever experienced neck pain, whether it is from sleeping in the wrong position or your desk job is taking a toll, you know how inconvenient and painful it can be.

Most of us find ways to treat neck pain at home. You may find it helpful to stretch, use a heating pad or take the opportunity to get a massage. Over-the-counter pain medication such as an NSAIDs may also help.

When to seek neck pain treatment

If you have neck pain lasting more than two weeks, or if your pain is due to a specific injury, you should seek the help of a medical professional so that you get on the path to finding relief.

Some of the most common symptoms of chronic neck pain include:

  • Pain that gets worse after holding your head in one position, such as when you are sitting at a computer or driving for long distances
  • Muscle tightness or spasms
  • Headaches
  • Decreased ability to move your head from side to side or up and down

At Panther Physical therapy, our treatments use hands-on therapy techniques, education on proper posture and movements that can relieve pain. We guide our patients in stretching and strength building exercises to help restore mobility and range of motion.
