Your neck has a wide range of motion and can be very susceptible to pain and injury. If nerves in the area are affected, the pain can even extend to additional areas including this upper back, shoulders and arms. Neck pain can be caused by a number of factors including a traumatic injury or accident, aging or degenerative disorders as well as prolonged motions and poor posture.
Physical therapists are well-qualified to evaluate and treat neck pain through custom programs designed to relieve symptoms and reduce occurrence. Some neck pain can even be eliminated depending on the type, location and severity or the issue.
