The neck assists in completing more tasks than one realizes, like commuting to work, sitting in front of a computer, completing chores, and playing with pets or kids. As such, neck pain can be one of the most debilitating and inconvenient health issues to live with when one is still responsible for completing their daily tasks.

Waking up to neck pain can have serious and life-changing implications, from stiffness to limited mobility and the ability to complete basic tasks. Coping with any kind of pain is the last thing one wants to worry about.

Don’t let neck pain impact your quality of life. At Optimum Health Rehab Suwanee, you can expect the expert care and experience necessary to treat your neck pain through physical therapy and chiropractic treatments.

Neck pain is unique because it can be caused by a series of issues, from a car accident to simply sleeping wrong. Through various technologies and techniques, we can identify and treat your pain at the very source.

Causes of Neck Pain and Why You Should Receive Neck Pain Treatment

At Optimum Health Rehab in Suwanee, our experienced therapists understand that the causes of neck pain are not one and the same.

Neck pain does not come from a singular source, they stem from a series of different issues. Discomfort and pain in the neck can be caused by age, trauma, bad posture, a pinched nerve, or other more complex medical conditions like osteoarthritis.

Despite its root cause, neck pain can hinder one from moving or completing tasks, and even worse when it becomes chronic, it can significantly impact one’s enjoyment of life and ability to complete basic tasks.

In the majority of cases, clients that experience neck pain find that it is caused by injury or strain, but neck pain can also be caused by growths (like cysts and tumors), stress, and aging.

The human spine is constructed with a stack of bones called the vertebrae. Each stack is cushioned by a disc that helps the spine move and protects the central nervous system with the support of the attached tendons, joints, ligaments, and muscles.

Any kind of injury or strain can lead to feeling some kind of pain in the neck and in the surrounding areas.

While neck pain will be felt by everyone at any given point in their lives, it does not mean that there is nothing they can do to regulate or minimize their pain. Optimum Health Rehab Suwannee’s professional staff is knowledgeable with decades of combined experience in helping clients find reduction and even complete relief by targeting the source of their pain.

Symptoms of Neck Pain

While not everyone faces the same kind of symptoms, the more commonly reported ones involve:

  • Pain while remaining in a particular position for an extensive period of time, like turning the head or holding the same position while driving.
  • Recurring headaches that can be debilitating.
  • Limited mobility, especially when moving the head in certain angles and directions.
  • Muscle tightness or spasms in the neck and surrounding areas.

Understanding your symptoms is a vital piece of information that will help tailor your personalized treatment plan.

What Is Osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis among older adults. It is a degenerative condition that describes the loss of cushioning between joints in the human body.

This can also happen in the neck as we age, and the pain can become very uncomfortable over time.

Our physical therapy and chiropractic services can help those dealing with osteoarthritis in the neck find a reduction in pain and discomfort. While this condition has no cure, it is manageable with the right kind of care.

A Rare Occurrence Leading to a Serious Medical Condition

While most neck pain comes from an obvious source, there are some rare cases where it is a symptom of a more serious medical condition.

If a client is experiencing sudden pain shooting up their arms or down towards their hands, feeling numbness, or losing strength in all extremities, they should seek medical attention immediately as these symptoms can be a sign of a more serious medical condition instead of neck pain.

How Optimum Health Rehab Suwannee Can Help

Clients battling neck pain may find help through our physical and chiropractic therapy sessions. Treatment plans designed at Optimum Health Rehab Suwannee are created with the client’s unique circumstances in mind.

Whether the neck pain is caused by a recent car accident or from hours of slouching in front of a computer at work, our therapists will use a combination of chiropractic and physical therapy techniques to work towards finding you relief.

Aim to Be Neck Pain-Free Starting With a Full Health Assessment

All of our clients begin their journey toward addressing their neck pain with a full health assessment. Here, we will perform diagnostics and assessments to determine what is causing your neck pain.

Our clients can expect the following:

  • A collection of their prior medical history.
  • Details about their pain, like where it is felt, when it began, and what has been done to help it in the past. Clients should try to describe their symptoms as best as they can.
  • History of any treatment plans, whether they were successful or not.

Any details can help personalize a treatment plan further and determine what has been done before and what worked, and what did not.

Imaging Testing

The Suwanee Optimum Health Rehab team will perform necessary imaging tests to better visualize the cause of your pain. Imaging can be a combination of three types: X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans.

Each kind of imaging technique is intended to show any issues with muscles, tissues, or joints. X-rays are an excellent way for medical professionals to see bones and their structures.

CT scans—or computed tomography scans—show more detailed visuals that combine X-rays and computer technology to see ligaments and tendons. Lastly, MRIs—or magnetic resonance imaging show details of the surrounding organs and tissues in the body.

All of these imaging techniques are fundamental in understanding and diagnosing the source of neck pain.

Begin a Treatment Program With You in Mind

Each client will begin a program that is just designed to address the root cause of their neck pain. With a combination of physical therapy and chiropractic services, you can expect a treatment plan that has proven to help many with similar cases.

These kinds of treatments are part of manual therapy. Manual therapy is a combination of manipulations of the human body used to stretch, strengthen, and treat problem-causing areas or the surrounding areas to support areas of past injuries and weaker muscles.

Why Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain Works

One of the most common methods to treat areas of pain and discomfort is chiropractic therapy. As part of manual therapy, chiropractic sessions are intended to set your skeletal system to its correct position through a series of manual adjustments to the spine and clavicle areas.

These sessions are great for improving posture and reducing pain. In some cases, it is the solution to resolve pain completely.

Chiropractic programs may include:

  • Manual adjustments – are used to realign, decrease pain, and increase the motion of the area.
  • Soft-tissue therapy – perfect for relaxing tight muscles and releasing tension.
  • Joint bracing and taping – used to support weaker areas of the body until they heal, especially for cases of serious injury.
  • Exercises and stretching – are used to maintain stability and mobility.

Physical Rehabilitative Treatment

Since the 1990s, there has been an increase in seeking physical therapy and similar treatments across the globe. Clients and medical professionals alike have seen an increase in its success.

Physical rehabilitative therapy is used to treat acute and chronic pain and can be used to prevent the pain from returning in the future.

Treatment plans include passive movements, electrotherapy, heat, and cold therapy. These techniques are usually accompanied by assigned exercises and stretches that the client will do at home.

The goal of physical rehabilitative therapy is not just to relieve pain but also to improve overall physical movement and increase physical activity. These treatments can relieve pain, increase coordination and strength, restore bodily function, and more.

Assigned Exercises and Stretches

A common accompaniment to chiropractic treatment plans is exercise and stretching. Our team will show you step-by-step how to perform all exercises and stretches to strengthen the body and improve its range of motion, especially in the areas surrounding the pain.

Clients are recommended to complete their exercises and stretches as they are critical to maintaining any attained mobility and stability of the problem area.

Physical Rehabilitative Therapy Can Be the Answer to a Pain-free You

Physical rehabilitative therapy programs can relieve pain, whether the pain started because of an injury or age. More specifically, with the help of a chiropractor, clients will see a reduction in the frequency and severity of their pain.

At Optimum Health Rehab Suwanee, you can expect a personalized physical rehab therapy program designed for your causes of neck pain by one of our highly experienced medical professionals.
