Neck pain is a common complaint, mostly due to poor posture. There are several other reasons for having neck problems and our orthopaedic physical therapists are well experienced to treat most neck problems.
Neck pain can start out as a headache or dull pain, then increase in pain till it restricts everyday activities. It can also cause problems with other areas of the body including shoulders, back and even head. Here at Hands of Hope NY we recognize the neck is one of the most common injuries and we treat a variety of patients from young athletes to senior citizens with the most common causes being;
– Recreational activities
– Car accidents
– Years of bad posture
– Sitting at a computer too long
– Or even high levels of stress, causing tension in the shoulders or neck.
We see a lot of patients who work for many hours and have a stressful lifestyle which increases their neck pain whatever the reason is.
A few simple exercises encouraging range of motion and flexibility enhancing activities such as yoga and Tai Chi can be great preventative measures for neck pain and neck constriction.
