Understanding Neck and Upper Back Pain

Neck and upper back pain can be debilitating, causing discomfort, restricted range of motion, and even headaches.

At Corrective Physical Therapy, we believe in delivering comprehensive and customized care to our patients. When you visit us for neck and upper back pain, you can expect:

We also educate you on ergonomics, self-care techniques, and strategies to prevent future episodes of neck and upper back pain.

Common Causes of Neck and Upper Back Pain

Our experienced therapists are well-versed in addressing a variety of conditions that contribute to neck and upper back pain, including:

Muscle Imbalances and Tension:

  • Imbalances in the muscles supporting the neck and upper back can lead to pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion.
  • Prolonged sitting, poor posture, and stress are common culprits of muscle tension and imbalances.
  • Our targeted treatments aim to restore muscular balance, release tension, and improve overall posture and alignment.

Cervical Radiculopathy:

  • Cervical radiculopathy occurs when a nerve root in the cervical spine becomes compressed or irritated, causing pain, numbness, and weakness that radiates into the arm.
  • Herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or degenerative changes in the spine are often responsible for this condition.
  • Our specialized interventions focus on reducing nerve compression, improving spinal stability, and relieving associated symptoms.

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome:

  • Thoracic outlet syndrome refers to compression of nerves or blood vessels in the upper chest area, resulting in neck and upper back pain, as well as symptoms in the arm and hand.
  • Poor posture, muscular imbalances, and anatomical variations can contribute to this condition.
  • Our comprehensive approach includes manual techniques, postural correction, and exercises to alleviate compression and improve functional mobility.

Whiplash-Associated Disorders:

  • Whiplash injuries commonly occur due to sudden acceleration-deceleration forces, such as during car accidents or sports-related incidents.
  • Neck and upper back pain, stiffness, headaches, and other symptoms can arise as a result of whiplash.
  • Our specialized treatments target tissue healing, pain reduction, and restoration of normal range of motion.
