Our physical therapists at Baton Rouge Physical Therapy are very experienced and successful in helping resolve your reasons for neck pain. They are highly educated on the anatomy of the neck and how to restore mobility and strength for it to function without pain.
Causes of Neck Pain
There are many reasons why people develop neck pain. It can happen due to overuse of the neck muscles and poor posture and whiplash after car accidents. Common diagnoses that people should seek a physical therapist for are cervical radiculopathy, a herniated disc, degenerative disc disease (DDD), and cervical osteoarthritis. Cervical radiculopathy, disc herniation, DDD, and osteoarthritis occur within the spine and often result in pressure on exiting spinal nerves. This causes pain, neck stiffness, headaches, numbness, and weakness in the neck, shoulders, and arms. Research states that total symptom resolution from physical therapy can have the same or better outcomes as surgery for these conditions!
Neck Pain Treatments
Other providers including surgeons and chiropractors who treat neck pain may suggest surgery, adjustments to move the vertebrae in the neck, or steroid injections to make the pain more tolerable. Physical therapists will focus on increasing the range of motion in the neck, shoulders, and upper back, creating more mobility to take pressure off of nerves and restoring muscle balance through exercise to reduce your symptoms and prevent your neck pain from returning. Your physical therapist will listen to your goals, the activities you do daily, and help you modify activities to heal you more quickly.

Here's what some of our patients had to say
My pain was so bad it was impacting my running and making my training very difficult and painful. With their help I was able to achieve my goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon! I am so thankful to all the staff for all they did for me and making me feel like I was…
This place is amazing. The people are outstanding. I love the way they explain what to do and why and will remind you when you forget. They are kind and realize you may be hurting. They are always timely and friendly. I thank all of you.
Best place ever. I had at least 4 separate injuries/surgeries where I needed therapy for my knee and back. Each time Tyler, Seth and crew got me back on track. You can’t beat their personal attention to your specific needs.
