Chronic neck pain is estimated to effect 30 to 50% of the general population. That is a staggering statistic, but not surprising given the abundance of “conveniences” in our modern world. Television, computers, mobile devices, and more have been suggested factors contributing to dysfunction leading to neck pain. Neck pain is a highly individual experience with a wide variety of symptoms. As with shoulder pain, research indicates that neck pain is associated with thoracic spine (or mid back) dysfunction among other factors. It is no coincidence that many of our patients experience neck and shoulder symptoms as an intimate mechanical relationship exists between the mid back, neck, and shoulder. Headaches, shoulder, arm, and hand pain may be coming from the neck as well as symptoms of numbness and tingling. Are any of these symptoms inhibiting you at work or at play? Do you find it more difficult and painful every time you turn your head to check your blind spot? Are long days at work followed by increased neck pain? At Move Physical Therapy, we will take a close look at your neck, mid back, and beyond to find the multiple sources behind your functional limitations so you can get back to pain free living.
