Even if the pain is limited to your neck, it can be debilitating and excruciatingly painful if it spreads down to your shoulders.

If left untreated, it can worsen, and in extreme cases surgery may be required. Sharp pains in the neck can impair your ability to go about your business. It doesn’t matter if you have trouble sitting up straight in your chair at work or if you have to tilt your head down to tie your shoes because of neck pain; physiotherapy can provide relief. Every year, holistic physiotherapy helps a large number of people who are suffering from neck pain. Neck pain relief is a top priority at our integrative physiotherapy practice.
Understanding Neck Pain
Neck pain can occur for a variety of reasons. In most cases, a person’s neck pain radiates through their shoulders and ends at the base of their skull. Pain can range from constant aches to sharp and stabbing pains, all which are possible. Clinical signs accompanying neck pain, such as but not limited to the following:
- Inflammation of the muscles and joints in the upper torso
- Tinnitus in the upper arms or hands.
- Inability to hold a position for long periods of time without experiencing discomfort
- Sleep deprivation as a result of discomfort and pain
- Standing or sitting with a straight back is impossible.
Neck pain is commonly caused by the following conditions:
Neck pain can be brought on by a variety of conditions, the most common of which are injuries to the tissues or bones of the neck. Pain in the neck can be caused by a variety of things, including:
A common cause of neck pain is whiplash, which is commonly caused by a car accident or a high-impact sports collision. One of the most common types of neck injuries is the “strain,” which causes the head to whip quickly back and forth.
- Illnesses such as rheumatoid arthritis, meningitis, and cancer, among other conditions, can cause neck pain.
- Compression of the nerves.
Compression of the nerves that exit the spinal cord can result from herniated discs or narrowing of the foramen (the space between vertebrae). Radiculopathy is a term used to describe nerve pain that extends from the neck all the way down to the fingers and toes.
- Muscle Strain
A strain is put on the muscles. It’s possible to strain the muscles in your neck if you overuse them frequently. Overuse of your neck muscles can be caused by as little as spending all day at your desk with it craning toward the computer screen.
- Joint degeneration
Joints in your neck degenerate just as any other joint in your body does. Osteoarthritis can also cause neck pain by reducing the cartilage between vertebrae in the neck.
Don’t waste time; Today is the day to begin your journey to achieve a pain-free neck.
One of the finest ways to manage neck pain is holistic physical therapy. We do an immediate physical diagnostic at Northstar Integrated Health & Physical Medicine Center to assess your neck’s range of motion and any constraints you may have because of your pain. After that, we will come up with a diagnosis that will help you figure out what kind of treatment you need. As a team, we will devise a plan to achieve your neck pain relief goals and get back to normal life as quickly as possible.
Holistic Manual therapy, also known as “hands-on” therapy, may be used to treat your neck pain by reducing the stiffness and increasing the muscle strength in your neck. These targeted exercises will help you strengthen and improve the muscles and tissues in your neck. In order to help your neck muscles heal and prevent future injuries, we will work on helping you improve your posture. According to the recommendations of our experienced physiotherapist, we can also use heat therapy, ultrasound therapy, or electrical stimulation to enhance your treatment.
