Neck pain is a very common ailment with many potential causes. The overall prevalence of neck pain in the general population is approximately 23%, with many patients going on to experience chronic pain lasting longer than one year. At the one year mark, 76% of patients with neck pain reported that they were completely recovered or much improved, but 46% reported some continuance of symptoms. Current literature supports early referral of people with neck pain to physical therapy. In some cases, patients are likely to fully recover independently, and only require education from their PT about how best to resume their normal activities. In other cases, patients who are not likely to recover as quickly will benefit from spinal mobilization and exercise intervention.
Why Motion Stability?
Often, people with complex neck pain are relegated to “one size fits all, cookie cutter” therapy that relies heavily on passive interventions such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and mechanical traction. At Motion Stability, our skilled and highly trained therapists will take the time to perform a thorough examination to determine as accurately as possible the cause of your neck pain. Appropriate interventions will be selected based on the root cause of your pain, and will be followed up with strategies to help you learn how to manage your pain independently and take control of your health. Your treatments will always be one on one with a Doctor of Physical Therapy, who will be able to give you their undivided attention during your appointment.
