The Cause Of Much Pain
Poor posture is one of the most common causes of neck pain and back pain. Fixing your posture often relieves pain after a few days and keeping good posture prevents this pain from returning. Unfortunately, muscle weakness prevents a person from consistently applying proper posture and an injury still can disable a person for a period of time, which is why we recommend physical therapy to speed up the healing process.
With physical therapy, it is possible to completely heal injuries caused by poor posture and our physical therapists will train your body so that you can easily maintain the correct posture whether you are sitting at a computer, sleeping, exercising, or just taking a walk.
Back pain occurs as the back hunches over. Most of the pain is low back pain. Now, what occurs is the the muscles become strained and weakened. This continues a cycle where the muscles continue to weaken and get even more painful if the correct posture isn’t strictly adhered too. Our patients may keep good posture for one day and then further injure themselves the next day because good posture is largely a habit and has to do with muscle strength.
At Cross Bay Physical Therapy, we will train your muscles to not only become stronger again so that you can quickly heal but also maintain good posture consistently. The physical therapy that we provide at our state of the art physical therapy center i meant to quickly heal tissue damage and once healed, help you strengthen the muscles you need to prevent future injury.
Hands-On Physical Therapy
Our physical therapists provide hands-on physical therapy making sure they are by your side watching and guiding you during every exercise. During your first appointment, we will create a customized treatment plan based around your injury and lifestyle.
Neck tightness is another problem that often ensues because of poor posture. This neck tightness leads to a wide range of intolerable medical conditions such as upper back strain and tightness, neck pain, migraines, and eyestrain all because of poor posture.
This poor posture usually occurs because the patient’s neck isn’t aligned with their spine but leaning forward causing the neck muscles to strain and tighten leading to painful symptoms. Our physical therapists have decades of experience relieving neck pain and back pain. We are experts at this and look forward to helping you not only relieve the pain you are experiencing but teach you how to remain symptom free for the rest of your life.
