Neck Pain, Headache & TMJ Dysfunction

Neck pain commonly affects an estimated 30% of people every year. Pain can be caused by sudden trauma from falls, accidents, or sports injury, or by long-term issues from worn joints, nerve compression, postural problems or disease. Regardless of the cause, a physical therapist can be an important part of helping you find answers.

Headaches are often caused by musculoskeletal conditions or postural dysfunction. They can be debilitating and complicate life.  By finding the root cause a physical therapist help alleviate the problem.

TMJ Dysfunction can limit the function of the jaw and is often closely related to posture. A physical therapist will thoroughly examine all contributing factors to alleviate the pain.

In physical therapy, our most basic obligation is to medically screen you and make sure that you are being treated in the right place. Physical therapists are trained to identify red flags that would require further medical assessment. If we cannot help you, we will refer you to the proper place. Physical therapists are also trained to help you find the root cause of your condition and to help you resolve your issue without medication or surgery as often as possible.
