How Physical Therapy Can Help in Vancouver

Our physical therapists will perform an initial evaluation to determine the range of motion and limitations in your neck. The diagnosis will be used to determine the treatment plan. Together, you will discuss the goals and expectations for each step of your individual treatment plan. The main focus is on relieving neck pain and getting back to work as soon as possible. Manual or “hands-on” therapy is the most common treatment for neck pain. This involves special techniques that reduce stiffness and increase the range of motion. You will also be provided with targeted exercises by our physical therapists that will strengthen, develop, and improve your neck’s tissues and muscles. To help your neck muscles recover, we will work to improve your posture and prevent future injuries. Our physical therapist may also recommend additional treatments such as ice and heat, ultrasound, or electric stimulation.
