Neck pain and headache may be avoidable for you

Avoiding Neck Pain and Headaches

There are many problems that can cause you neck pain and headaches. What you may not be aware of is that targeted physical therapy may help you avoid these two types of pain. However, only a great physical therapy team can provide you with this preventive help. 

Here at Specialists in Sports and Orthopedic Rehabilitation (SSOR), our team of therapists has been working with people for years. We’ve seen many different types of injuries and pain since we opened our doors. All of this experience has helped us create two goals for every patient we treat. Our first goal is to provide you with transparency. This means we’ll help you understand everything you want to know about your physical therapy journey with us. Increasing your understanding in this way also helps us achieve the second goal we have for your treatment. This goal is to help you find relief as quickly as possible. These two goals are critical to us when helping you avoid the recurrence of neck pain and headaches. 

How SSOR may be able to help you avoid future neck pain and headaches 

Our team is aware that pain in your neck or headaches often come from the same causes. Car accident injuries, such as whiplash, can cause you to develop both these types of pain. Another issue that can cause neck discomfort and headaches is having chronic poor posture. Repetitive neck motions you do at home or at work can also cause these two forms of pain. Even tension in your upper back and shoulders from stress can cause these pains. 

There are several steps our team will take to help you start avoiding headaches and neck pain. First, we’ll determine what exactly is causing you to have these types of pain. Making this determination will allow us to more directly target the cause of your pain with specific therapy methods. For instance, we may perform an ultrasound of your neck to help us find where your pain originates. 

Next, our team will create a treatment plan tailored to the cause of your pain. For example, we may create specific program of exercises for you, and this program may help improve the flexibility, strength and range of motion in your neck. We may also make ergonomic recommendations that may help improve your posture. 

Finally, we’ll ensure that you can perform your exercise program and implement your ergonomic recommendations. Having these tools at your disposal are what may ultimately allow you to avoid neck pain or headaches in the future. 

Our team at Specialists in Sports and Orthopedic Rehabilitation is ready to help you develop the tools you need to avoid the pain of neck problems and headaches. We offer free, 15-minute screenings just to help you get started with your treatment. To schedule your screening for neck pain and headaches, contact the SSOR team today.
