If any of the above sounded familiar, continue reading to find out the solutions to your neck pain, and what 3 mistakes to avoid when getting it treated.

What’s Wrong With My Neck?

To help you understand what might be wrong with your neck, we’ll take our client Jenny for example. Jenny works as a nurse, and she loves exercising as a hobby. Her neck was a big problem for her. She wasn’t able to lift patients at work, and exercising would always seem to make her neck pain worse. She was frustrated because she had been battling neck pain for a few years. She would go to physical therapy for it, and it would get better, but then a few months later it always seemed to come back. She would return and they would give her the same exercises. So then she tried going to her MD, who only seemed interested in running tests and giving her pills. She felt like she was just spinning her wheels because nothing seemed to work long term. Eventually her neck started to bother her when she was sleeping, so she never felt fully rested. This left her tired, unable to exercise, and unable to perform her best at work and she didn’t know what to do next.

Has any of this happened to you?

At one point Jenny even considered having surgery on her neck. By the time she came to us, she had tried everything from YouTube exercises, to massage, to medicine, to chiropractic, and even a few other physical therapists. 

When we first met Jenny we found out what others had missed so many times before. 


Mistake #1: Focusing only on one body part.
 

Believe it or not, Jenny’s neck pain kept coming back because of her shoulders and not moving how they were supposed to. This was forcing her neck to work double time. When you focus on just what’s happening at the neck, you’re focusing on the symptom, not the cause. It’s often a combination of what’s happening at the neck, shoulder blade, and mid-back.

We developed a plan to help Jenny’s neck to heal by first identifying everything that was CAUSING the pain to keep coming back. This helps us to avoid mistake #2: cookie cutter treatments.

Mistake #2: Cookie Cutter Treatments

There are 17 muscles that attach to the shoulder alone. Many of them also attach to the neck. There are specific muscles in the neck that can give you headaches. These muscles are typically weak or over-used. Everyone’s case is different. Some people have shoulder pain, along with their neck pain, others have mid-back pain. Some have arthritis, others have disc issues. Every case is completely different, and it should be explained to you exactly how each treatment and exercise is going to get you better. 

Mistake #3: Not Having A Good Outcome In Mind

Where Jenny had struggled in the past, was the plan was always about the neck pain. When the pain was gone, treatment would stop. Then she would get back to exercising and going to work and it would slowly creep back in. 

Her real outcome was being able to work and exercise without being limited by neck pain and headaches. She wanted to be able to get a full night’s sleep, and take care of herself, and her patients. We designed a plan that helped her achieve all of the above.

What Can I Do To Get Rid Of My Neck Pain Completely?

1. The sooner you take action, the sooner it will get fixed. If you choose to wait, your body adapts to moving around the pain, and you develop more bad habits that take longer to fix.

2. You need the right exercises at the right stage of your recovery. If you’ve ever heard of a “PT mill” it’s where everyone with neck pain gets the same 10-20 exercises without any explanation given. Evaluation by a specialist can ensure that you get the right exercises at each stage of recovery, to guide you to complete recovery without it coming back.

3. Avoid sleeping on your stomach. It can cause inflammation that slowly builds up through the night.

4. Work with a specialist physical therapist. At The Doctors of Physical Therapy we do not use any aides or technicians so your time is spent 1-on-1 with an expert the entire session.
