Physical Therapy at Home for Neck Pain
Neck pain is the second most common diagnosis we treat in physical therapy at ActiveFit. Studies show that 33% of the population will have an episode of neck pain at some point each year. We rely on our necks throughout the day, and when you have neck pain, it can be very debilitating for nearly all activities.
The good news is that our Doctor of Physical Therapy is credentialed in McKenzie Therapy and can help you improve your pain within 1-2 visits with full pain free function typically achieved within 6 to 8 weeks. Another benefit is that with the McKenzie Method, there is significant focus on patient education. By the end of your physical therapy with ActiveFit, you will have the confidence to maintain your full reduction of symptoms, learn the warning signs of a future flare up, and learn how to prevent a future flare up from getting out of control.
Regardless of the medical diagnosis of your neck pain, there are 3 classifications for neck pain in McKenzie Method. These classifications help guide your treatment plan to achieve quick results. If you have neck pain and choose to ignore it, be aware that it may prolong how much physical therapy you may need in the future, see dysfunction below.
