What Is Neck Pain?
Since neck pain is often due to posture-related reasons, sometimes you can and do expect neck pain. At other times, you may wake up with a sore neck and not know how it happened. Regardless of if you know where it’s come from and why, neck pain can be difficult to deal with and put a dampener on your everyday life.
Symptoms Of Neck Pain
Pain anywhere in the neck
Pain that worsens when you hold your head in one place for an extended period of time, such as when working at a computer
Decreased ability to move your head as easily as you could before
Common Causes Of Neck Pain And Common Neck Pain Conditions
Worry or stress
You may find that you unconsciously place stress on your neck muscles during periods of worry, which may lead to neck pain.
An accident or injury
Incidents such as car accidents can cause whiplash, which can cause pain, swelling, stiffness, or tenderness in the neck. This is because the head jerks backwards and forwards in situations like these, which can strain the neck’s soft tissues.
Treatment For Neck Pain
At Modern Medicine, we take treatment for your neck pain seriously. We understand how significantly neck pain can affect your ability to work and relax, so we do everything we can to help reduce that pain and help you feel like yourself again.
Massage therapy incorporates a range of techniques intended to increase mobility and functionality. Massage therapy aims to release muscle knots and tension, improve your range of motion and circulation, and reduce stress and anxiety levels which may be heightened as a result of neck pain.
Myotherapy is based on an evidence-based assessment, treatment, and management of musculoskeletal dysfunction, including neck pain. Myotherapy aims to identify the root cause of pain and mobility issues and then work to reduce pain and increase functionality through hands-on treatments.
Exercise physiology is so much more than a personal trainer or gym instruction. Exercise physiologists have an extensive understanding of the human body and use this to rehabilitate muscle, joint, and nerve injuries as well as provide treatment for chronic diseases that may have an impact on your neck pain.
