Almost all types of neck pain does not call for surgery and respond efficiently to physical therapy. Physical therapists are able to devise a personalized treatment program to help people with neck pain alleviate the discomfort, restore normal movement, and get back to their normal life.

  • do regular neck movements the therapist instructs you. These can help alleviate stiffness and pain and rebuild the normal mobility of the neck.
