Physical Therapy for Neck Pain
The spine is one of the core support structures of the body. The lower back, for example, holds up and supports much of the body’s weight, whether sitting down or standing up. On the other hand, the neck supports the head – one of the most important parts of the human body. It is a flexible joint, with a great deal of mobility and range of motion. However, the same wondrous natural engineering that allows for the neck to do the things it does also makes it as vulnerable to injury as the rest of the spine. This makes it surprisingly prone to a need for neck physical therapy.
What triggers a need for therapy can vary. Some people need physical care from experts like Advanced Physical Therapy because of their hunched over position. Some people tend to hunch over when driving or when looking at a computer monitor. The very tall also have trouble with this, since they sometimes have to stoop or adjust the angle of their head because much of what they encounter is not designed to compensate for their height. A heavy suitcase or object that is carried consistently and exclusively on one side of the body is also a potential problem.
