Neck Pain Therapy in South Pasadena
Our neck supports the head in our bodies. It is composed of several bones supporting one on top of the other. These bones are connected by two facet joints and a disc. The bones are also joined together with ligaments. While our muscles provide movement and essential support to the structures of our neck.
Neck pain has several factors including muscle tension, poor posture, lack of overall fitness, inappropriate lifting styles, and worn out core muscles. These causative factors can result in both acute and chronic neck pain that has been debilitating for some time. The neck is very active, to enable us to check in all directions. Stresses and tensions from poor postures, trauma, and degenerative conditions are the most common factors affecting the development of neck pain. There is strong evidence that suggests regular exercise helps relieve these symptoms. A neck pain therapy has been found to be an effective modality in relieving pain associated with these types of conditions.
Neck pain can typically be managed by expert therapists, while there are other alternative treatments such as chiropractic or osteopathy to choose from. When you need temporary pain relief from medication, consult your medical doctor.
Neck pain treatments depend on the cause such as:
- prevention from unnecessary strains from work and everyday activities
- individualized exercise programs to retrain and then strengthen the neck muscles
- body posture training exercises
- passive joint manipulation and mobilization
- muscle or soft tissue massage
- posture correction through tapping
- body relaxation therapy
The focus of neck pain is to identify the main cause of the pain and treat it. Typically, the pain emanates from the neck and back is in its supporting components such as the muscles, joints, and ligaments. The muscles and ligaments surrounding the neck may be weakened or inflamed, and posture may be misaligned resulting in pain and movement issues.

Then the therapist will continue with the tailored massage while using their specific technique to alleviate any type of discomfort or pain that you presented. During your massage we apply the pressure we think necessary for what you are presenting. If at any time during the massage you feel discomfort please let the therapist know so they can adjust the pressure. Our goal is to have you leave with the best massage that you have ever had while alleviating the pain and discomfort that you have. You should never leave a massage facility feeling sore or in more pain than you came in with. If you are slightly sore that will be from a deep tissue or from addressing a specific body area that does need work.
