Neck pain can be, well, a pain in the neck!
This is a complicated area of the body to treat. The neck is amazing! Consider how holds up your noggin so you can see and, with other complex systems, orients you to be able to see and interact in your environment no matter what position your body is in or speed you are moving. Your neck is always working. Your head weighs about as much as a bowling ball. It's no wonder we can have problems here!
Often, if people have tried other treatments and failed, they just didn't address all the factors that contributed to their problem.
In treating the neck, we always consider the upper back, vestibular system (inner ear), your balance and coordination, posture, body mechanics, and ergonomics. This is another area where the MovementCorrection Methodreally works!
Problems with the neck also play a large role in headaches, migraines, suboccipital neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, TMJD, and symptoms in the arms and hands. Using a more holistic approach, we can often eliminate or reduce the symptoms enough that you don't have to live on medication.
But, you say, “Have you seen my MRI?! What can physical therapy do for bulging discs, arthritis, or stenosis?” No matter how bad you’ve been told your back is on MRI, there’s hope for you.
Check out this blog post highlighting just one study about 3,000 people WITHOUT back pain who had bulging discs and even severe degeneration: The Source of Your Pain vs The Source of Your Problem.
Similar findings relative to the neck have been discovered. So, there's hope for you!
