Treating Neck Pain at Panther Physical Therapy

Treating Neck Pain

At Panther Physical Therapy, we understand that neck pain can impact us all at some point in our lives. Whether it’s just a twinge in our neck muscles from sleeping in the wrong position or a stabbing pain when we try to move from a more serious injury, neck pain can really put a damper on your day.

If you’ve been suffering from neck pain for more than a day or two, there may be a more significant cause of your discomfort than just sleeping in the wrong position. Any neck pain that lasts longer than just a few days should be examined by a doctor. In many cases, your doctor may recommend you to see a physical therapist to try to relieve the pressure on the pinched nerve in your neck that is causing your pain.

At Panther Physical Therapy, we offer a variety of physical therapy treatments targeted at relieving neck pain. Take a moment to review some of the treatments we offer, and contact our office to schedule an appointment.

Physical therapy options for neck pain

Choosing a treatment plan to address your specific neck pain starts with our team understanding your current level of discomfort. We may also need to address the possibility of your pain returning due to your lifestyle or work environment.

Once we determine what caused your neck pain, we will be able to choose from the treatment list below to create a personalized plan to help you get back to your normal quality of life:

  • Manual Therapy
  • Ultrasound Therapy
  • Traction
  • Joint Mobilization
  • Massage
  • Postural Correction

All of these treatments are great options to help you find relief from your neck pain. Our physical therapists may choose one or a combination of treatments to best help relieve your discomfort.

The goal of our physical therapy treatments

At Panther Physical Therapy, our primary goal for your treatment plan is to reduce your pain and swelling while improving your range of motion in your head and neck. If the pain cannot be eliminated, we do our best to teach you ways to prevent the pain from recurring. Some of our patients are sent home with additional exercises and stretches to do at home to aid in their recovery.

We always encourage our patients to take an active role in their treatment. Sometimes clinical sessions are simply not enough, and at-home exercises lead to a more successful outcome for a patient. The initial examination is when we will discuss how much work you feel comfortable doing at home. If you are dedicated to getting better together with our staff, then we can make tremendous progress towards your recovery.
