Neck Rehabilitation

Common symptoms that stem from the cervical spine are associated with the head, including headaches, dizziness, and light-headedness. Injuries below the cervical spine included shoulder pain, trapezius-levator scapula dysfunction and AC impingement. A simple assessment to ensure there is a good balance in the upper extremity, followed by a movement assessment to highlight any dysfunctions that need correcting are required to put in place a corrective exercise program.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I fix a stiff neck?

A stiff neck usually occurs when muscles are weak and are misused due to poor posture. Poor posture can cause the muscles to tire and the muscles around the neck to become overstretched. Specific stretches can help relieve the stiffness in the neck, along with strengthening exercises to help rebalance the joints.

What causes neck pain without injury?

Neck pain without an apparent cause often results from a minor sprain or tear to the muscle tissue. This type of pain is the most common neck pain. The pain can sometimes be due to poor posture. Holding the neck out of alignment for extended periods can strain the muscles.

What causes neck pain on one side?

Pain to either side of your neck is usually nothing serious. It is often caused by muscle strain, poor sleeping position, or bad posture. If the pain continues for more than a few days, it is advised to seek medical help or check out home-based remedies.
