Neck Pain Therapy in Marina Del Rey

Some pains in specific areas can run through another part of the body. When your pain is originating in your neck, it can also be experienced in the head, arms, or legs sometimes. As pain worsens, it is possible for it to radiate further from where it originates.

What Can Physical Therapy Do?

Physical therapy for neck pain is designed to treat the components that support the spine. These include the tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints around the neck. Your treatment will involve both active and passive techniques of physical therapy to achieve the full recovery, mobility, and injury prevention for the future.

A passive physical therapy applies different techniques such as massage therapy, and ice and heat packs application. A regular massage therapy is recommended to reduce pain and loosen the muscles. Ice or heat application help to alleviate swelling and discomfort, other than improving blood flow for healing in the affected area.

While an active physical therapy for neck pain typically involves specialized exercises, stretches, adjustments that help alleviate or manage your pain altogether. Sometimes, water therapy may be advised, as the lightness of water takes pressure off of the cervical and lumbar spine when you are doing the prescribed exercises.

What Should I do First?

The physical therapist will first conduct an assessment to determine the main reason for your neck pain before the therapy program starts. A strength and agility test will be performed and a goniometer will measure your range of mobility. You will be instructed to do certain tasks in order to assess your functional mobility.

Spinal mobility will be also gauged through palpation that will identify the origin of the painful or tight muscles. Your complete medical history will be looked into, in addition to your other conditions, in order to determine the severity and nature of the pain. After your assessment is complete, your physical therapist will devise and recommend a treatment plan that will deal with the cause of your neck pain and aim in providing relief.
