Neck pain affects up to 20 percent of the population each year according to a 2010 study published in the journal “Best Practice & Research Clinical Rheumatology”. This pain can range in severity from a minor annoyance that slightly disrupts your day to a debilitating condition that leaves you unable to turn your head. Your neck pain may be the result of a chronic, degenerative problem or occur due to acute trauma from a fall or accident. However, most neck pain is not serious, and physical therapy for neck pain can often help.
A physical therapist can help you get rid of your neck pain.
Physical therapy for neck pain focuses on using corrective exercise and manual therapy to correct your specific issue as quickly as possible. We will work with you to show you how care for your neck and prevent the neck pain from recurring.
Jeremy also specializes in Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy (OMPT) which involves hands-on techniques for restoring mobility to stiff joints and reducing muscle tension in order to return the patient to more natural movement without pain. Thus, manual physical therapy may provide back pain relief both for patients with chronic back pain involving joint problems, such as sacroiliac joint dysfunction, and acute back pain from soft tissue injuries such as a back muscle strain or a pulled back ligament.
OMPT’s goal is to correct the source of pain instead of placing focus on the symptoms. Additionally, a hands-on approach to treating neck pain by manual therapy may help people get better faster and at a lower cost than more traditional treatments. When OMPT is combined with our multi-disciplinary approach to treatment, we can deliver astounding results for our patients.
