Prevent Neck Pain From Affecting Your Day- Begin a Relief Treatment with Physical Therapy.

Your neck plays a major role in your day-to-day activities and movement. However, due to certain conditions, the neck may suffer from slight, acute, or chronic pain, which may affect the neck’s proper functioning. Neck pain can be a debilitating and worrisome condition that affects the upper body part, such as the shoulder, when not addressed quickly and adequately.

According to research conducted by the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA), it was discovered that about one-third of Canada’s population suffers from neck pain every year.

Whether your pain occurs when you are at work, when titling your head, or during any form of activity, your condition can be treated effectively using therapeutic modalities. This treatment approach has been able to help a lot of our patients attain relief and also return back to their normal lifestyles. In addition, prevent them from opting for invasive treatment such as surgery or cortisone injection.

If you live in Edmonton, our physiotherapist can provide you with the right treatment needed to address your condition as soon as possible.

What can Cause My Neck Pain?

Neck pain can be caused due to various factors such as trauma, job stress, sports stress, repetitive motion, poor loading strategies, as well as musculoskeletal pain. Therefore, it is important to ensure that safety strategies are adopted from time to time to manage any possible causes.

Some of the causes of neck pain include:

  • Muscle strains: This condition may occur as a result of workstation activities such as sitting at your desk all day with your neck positioned towards the computer screen. When your neck muscle is overused, it will develop strain leading to pain and discomfort.
  • Illnesses: Illnesses from certain ailments and diseases, such as arthritis, cancer, and meningitis, can create neck pain.
  • Injuries: Certain injuries, such as strain injury, and whiplash, may occur from automobile or high-impact sports collisions. When this happens, soft tissues around the neck are affected, causing neck pain.
  • Degenerative joint conditions: Degenerative joints are developed due to conditions like osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis can lower the cartilage around the neck vertebrae, leading to pain sensation in the neck. Also, degenerative joints may occur due to age factors. 
  • Compressed nerves: Branched nerves around the spinal cord can be compressed due to herniated disc or narrowing of the foramen. When this occurs, radiculopathy happens (pain is felt from the neck down to the hands and fingers).

At Milestone Physio & Wellness Clinic, when you come for your first appointment with our physiotherapist, they will conduct a physical evaluation to identify the range of motion in your neck as well as the cause of the pain. After that, they will ask several questions about your symptoms, medical history, as well as other health limitation that may occur. Based on the evaluation result, your physiotherapist will work closely with you to develop a suitable treatment plan that will be tailored to ease your neck pain and aid your recovery process. 

At the commencement of your treatment plan, our major focus is to address your pain and manage any current symptoms your may be experiencing. Our physiotherapist will achieve this with the use of therapeutic modalities, specific movements, manual techniques, and health management teaching. As your treatment progress, your physiotherapist will review your treatment plan to ensure you recover as soon as possible. Other therapeutic treatments will be included to strengthen your shoulder, back, and neck muscle groups. In addition, ensure you return back to your normal activities  

Before we conclude your treatment plan, our physiotherapist will educate you on health management strategies and the importance of periodic checks of physical baselines, provide ergonomic recommendations, and introduce specific exercises, stretches, and movement strategies you can perform while at home. Our goal is to ensure you learn effective approaches to prevent repetitive neck pain or stiffness while standing or sitting all day at home or work.
