A physical therapist can help determine the root cause of your neck discomfort and provide appropriate treatments based on examination results. With the care of our expert physical therapists at Colorado in Motion, you can start working towards eliminating your neck pain today.

Common Causes of Neck Pain

There are a variety of potential causes of neck pain and it is important to determine the root cause before receiving treatment. Often, degeneration of the discs in the spine can lead to compression and dysfunction in the vertebral joints. This type of problem can present as a restriction in range of motion or even nerve pain that can travel from the neck to the arm or hand. In other cases, postural issues can cause muscular length and strength deficits. Whatever the cause, a physical therapist will perform a thorough evaluation, determine whether your symptoms warrant referral to another provider, and ultimately develop a treatment plan that is specific to your needs and abilities. 

How to Relieve Neck Discomfort

A physical therapist can help reduce neck pain by addressing the root cause of the pain or restriction. Scientifically supported treatment strategies can help create space in compressed joints which can reduce nerve compression and pain. If there is a postural deviation, it is important to strengthen weak muscles and stretch shortened muscles. When neck pain is caused by nerve compression or restriction, it can often help to mobilize the nerve as it travels from the spine to the arm. Your physical therapist will synthesize your symptoms and treatment options in order to provide the best possible care based on current practice and evidence.

I was referred to CIM for some calf and Achilles issues a few months after a bad strain. I had the pleasure of working with Derek Haverley to resolve it. Derek took time explaining to me how dry needling could help the situation, the results were amazing. It took about 4-5 sessions of dry needling…

I was impressed that he often would follow up with an e-mail with photos…

I was referred to Colorado Physical Therapy Specialists and saw John. He was very helpful in easing the pain in my shoulder and gave me exercises to do at home in short increments of time that would fit into my schedule, but would still accomplish the goal. He will listen to any concerns, is very…
