Start Early with Physical Therapy

Neck pain is one of the most costly medical conditions in the United States for everyday people. In many instances, neck pain becomes chronic (lasting an average of more than three months to years) because people don’t get the right treatment soon enough! The feeling of pain can be extended as a result of long waits for treatment, ineffective medication, and repeated exposure to everyday triggers like poor posture, repeated strains at work, or poor movement mechanics with work tasks.

What’s Causing My Neck Pain?

There are numerous reasons why your neck may be bothering you. Each case needs to be evaluated and treated to the individual needs of the patient. One treatment plan does not solve everyone’s problem. Doing the same exercises over and over does not always help. Dr. Christopher Gomes will correctly evaluate the cause of your neck pain and help you get PAIN-FREE.

Some causes of neck pain include:

  • Poor posture at the office
  • Stiff joints from a person’s anatomy, arthritis, or injury
  • Injury during activity or sleep
  • Disc bulges/disc injury
  • Injury from whiplash, falls, car accident
  • Herniated disc
  • Stinger’s in sports
  • Concussions
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Brachial plexus injuries

Frequently Asked Questions About Back Pain Relief and Physical Therapy

Generally, all episodes of neck pain should be evaluated by a medical professional. However, if there is a known cause of your injury, like sleeping in an awkward position, you may be able to alleviate all symptoms with heat, rest, and stretching. Waiting too long before seeing a professional may allow the pain to linger. If your neck pain advances to headaches, arm pain, numbness and tingling, or weakness, it’s critical to see a medical provider such as your primary care or physical therapist. Dr. Christopher Gomes has extensive experience effectively treating orthopedic and neurological neck pain.
