Neck Pain Physical Therapy
According to the Mayo Clinic, neck pain is experienced annually by 30% of the population in the United States. Symptoms can be localized to the neck or radiate to the shoulder blades, arms, hands, and fingers. Neck pain can also contribute to headaches and migraines.
What is our approach?
Our Sherwood and Bethany physical therapists at Evolve Physical Therapy will conduct a thorough examination combined with your history of symptoms to determine the cause of the neck pain. Our goal is to provide you with long-term relief to allow you to return to your regular activities without pain or other symptoms.

Neck Pain Injuries We Treat:
A muscular strain for the low back is often described as dull and achy with a generalized sore and tight sensation. The symptoms may be experienced on one side or both sides of the low back. Neck pain physical therapy can help address these symptoms.
A herniated disc (bulging or ruptured disc) is when one of the discs in the spine tears or ruptures. It can occur anywhere on the spine, irritating the rest of the spine and nerves within. Symptoms can result in pain or weakness.
Whiplash is a neck injury resulting from a forceful or intense back-and-forth motion. This injury causes pain, stiffness, and limited movement in the head, neck, upper back, and shoulders. Other symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, vertigo, and pain or numbness in the arms and hands. Concussions can also result from a whiplash injury: neck pain physical therapy can help address these symptoms that often require more than relaxation and gentle stretching for the neck muscles.
Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) is when one or more discs in the spinal cord’s vertebrae deteriorate. This disease is a common age-related condition. Common symptoms are muscle spasms, pain, and weakness in your neck, and may spread to your shoulder, arm, or hands. Neck pain physical therapy can help ease these symptoms.
Spinal stenosis narrows the spinal canal’s space, pressuring the nerves throughout the spine. It is common to feel pain, muscle weakness, or numbness in the neck, and shoulder.
Fractures and Stress Fractures
While fractures are clean breaks, a stress fracture is a small crack or severe bruising of a bone. Stress fractures occur when your muscles become tired and cannot absorb the shock from activity. Pain is the most common symptom of a fracture, along with tenderness and swelling.
Degenerative Joint Disease
Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD), or osteoarthritis, is the most common type of arthritis caused by the wear-down of the cartilage of the joints. The symptoms of osteoarthritis are pain, stiffness, swelling, and loss of flexibility.
Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure to fuse two or more vertebrae. It reduces pain and helps with weakness, instability, and deformities. It can also relieve herniated discs.
