The neck comprises of seven cervical vertebrae, with a variety of joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles that are common sites for many injuries. These injuries affect the lives of more than 30 million people on any given day. In a demanding world that often-involved hours of repetitive computer work, it is not uncommon to find yourself holding your neck in pain by the end of the day.  This repetitive stress mechanism is heavily responsible for "anterior head carriage," which causes a variety of injuries and conditions. Neck dysfunction can be heavily involved with pain in the neck, midback back, shoulder, and other regions of the body.  Neck pain has many different origins and presentations and should always be evaluated by a medical professional.

Neck pain has many origins and presentations and can affect a patient in many different ways. The region of pain might not be the region that is causing your current issue. Our team of doctors evaluates each patient through a detailed history and comprehensive physical exam that includes a series of dynamic and static tests, postural/ergonomic evaluation, and examination of the lower or upper extremity movement patterns that trigger your symptoms.  This thorough examination will allow us to identify what is causing your pain or dysfunction and begin working on an individualized treatment plan with corrective exercises that fits your exact needs..
