What are the common causes of neck pain?

This is a question that we get asked almost every initial session.  When we discuss neck pain, our conversation begins after a diagnosis of the following:

  • Cervical Stenosis
  • Cervical Disc Herniations
  • Cervical Radiculopathy/Nerve Root Impingement In the Cervical Spine
  • Whiplash/Neck muscle strains

    Often times, you may feel that because you were diagnosed with these conditions, your pain will be permanent.  Not true! Physical therapy can reduce and eliminate pain, even when these conditions exist!

Dr. Brendan is one of the best therapists I have worked with! He is professional, very knowledgeable, smart and compassionate. He listens to you as a patient and is very creative with his critical thinking and treatments. He has worked on me and tried dry needling for my neck multiple times and every time made me feel like a new person! Highly recommend him if you are looking for an amazing physical therapist!

Brendan provided relief from severe neck stiffness related to radiation therapy. When I saw him at the beginning of the summer I could barely move. His depth of knowledge and the use of various techniques allowed me to almost immediately move more freely, and return to the activities I enjoy, particularly weight training, swimming and golf.
