When that “pain in the neck” isn’t just a saying
About 8 in 10 of us will experience back or neck pain at some point in our lives, and for some, it can be severe, debilitating and reoccurring. It’s our body’s core, after all. So when the muscles and nerves in the muscle and spine are sprained or strained, the pain and discomfort can make it difficult to get up – let alone work and do the things we love.
Neck pain is extremely common; one in three people will experience neck pain this year, and for many people, the pain will go away on its own. However, others may experience continued pain and disability long after the initial injury or onset of pain. Often there is no clear “why” for your neck pain—studies have shown that neck pain, like back pain, is not necessarily caused by the arthritis or herniated disc shown on your X-ray or MRI. While there may not be a clear answer for why you have neck pain, we here at Elevate will help you map out your path back to a normal, painfree neck.
Experts in spine health and getting clients back to their everyday lives, ELEVATE Physical Therapy Fitness and Performance focuses not just on treating the pain or discomfort but determining and treating the cause. ELEVATE will also show you how to prevent its reoccurrence so that your focus can return back to life.
