Neck Pain Physiotherapy Oakville
Do you have severe neck pain? Our Oakville Physiotherapy team can help!
Neck Pain Treatment:
When addressing neck pain treatment with our Oakville physiotherapy clinic, we see a wide variety of acute and traumatic injuries caused by overuse or repetitive stress. With a traumatic injury such as whiplash from a car accident or a fall, our Oakville physiotherapy clinic will help prevent secondary complications from these injuries, and return you safely to activity.
Chronic/overuse neck or cervical spine conditions resulting in neck pain are becoming more common as a result of people, both kids and adults, spending most of the day sitting at a desk, looking down at work, a computer, or using handheld devices. Our Oakville physiotherapist is an expert at treating neck pain!
Most treatment for neck pain will use a combination of IFC, Hands on Therapy, Shockwave Therapy, Instrument Soft Tissue Therapy and at home postural modifications and exercises.
What causes neck pain?
The forward positions listed above, combined with poor posture, put a lot of extra stress on the muscles that stabilize and control the movement of the head and neck. When muscles become overworked the tension in the muscles increases, which can cause inflammation, requiring neck pain treatment in the form of neck physiotherapy. The increase in muscle tension puts abnormal stress through the joints of the neck, which if allowed to continue for a long period of time can lead to joint stiffness, or a decrease in mobility, and an abnormal wearing down of the protective cartilage on the bony surfaces of the joint. This can lead to an early onset of degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis or disc degenerative disease (DDD).
These lifestyle issues can lead to text neck and a forward head posture. Our Oakville physiotherapy team are seeing an alarming rate of kids with text neck as modern children are on their devices for longer periods of time. If you notice your child’s posture changing, get them in today, before its too late!
How can our Oakville Physiotherapists with neck pain?
Our physiotherapy team will work to manage the inflammation to promote an optimum environment for healing through manual techniques, modalities and icing instructions. We will use manual techniques and a prescribed stretching program to decrease muscle tension, taking stress off the healing tissues.
Oakville Physiotherapy Neck Pain Treatment:
We will work on the mobility of the joints in your neck, making sure everything is positioned and moving as it should to ensure proper muscle activation of your stability muscles in the neck and core, as well as increase their strength and endurance, through developing an appropriate exercise program. Our Oakville physiotherapy team will use shockwave machine therapy as an aid in the treatment. The shockwave is a air compressed bullet (pneumatic gun) that hits the surface of the skin. It helps break up scar tissue and helps increase blood flow to the neck muscles.
We will give you neck pain treatment tips, and exercises to help improve your posture, and develop better work position habits to help prevent this condition from coming back!
Many of our patients experience pain due to tight musculature in the back of the head and neck. One excellent modality that can help to eliminate pain quickly is acupuncture. Dr. Jenn uses acupuncture to boost blood flow to the tight muscles, helping them relax and recover. Acupuncture is pain-free and work quickly!
