Back and Neck

Millions of Americans are adversely impacted by back and neck pain each year. Studies show that, at one point or another, approximately 80% of the U.S. population will be affected by back pain in their lifetime.

In fact, each year the second most common reason for doctor visits is back pain. (The first is actually treatment for skin disorders.)

Most people experience back pain as a result of sprains/strains, overuse, injuries, lifting improperly, or sitting/standing for prolonged periods. While there are many options available to treat back pain, most of these only address the symptoms and don’t target the actual cause of your pain. Here at PROCare Physical Therapy, our physical therapists work to find the actual cause of your back pain, which may include:

  • mechanical (joints)  or myofascial (muscle) problems
  • poor posture
  • abnormal movement patterns
  • spinal conditioning.

Neck Pain: Deferring Discomfort

Neck pain is also very common in itself — but it also can generate pain or limited mobility in the neck, shoulder, arm, or hand. Even headaches and migraines can often be the result of an underlying neck problem.  Often the primary reason for neck pain is simply tightened muscles due to poor posture, daily stress, or sitting at computers for hours, but sometimes the culprit can be more difficult to diagnose: joint restriction or even a chemical deficiency (vitamin, mineral, etc).
