Neck and Head pain treatment with FYZICAL
What constitutes serious neck and head pain?
By the time people seek treatment for their neck pain and headaches, it’s not because of the occasional twinge, but rather for problems that have lasted several months, even years. Common complaints include migraines and tension headaches, not being able to turn one’s head fully, all-over neck soreness, stabbing pain localized to one spot on the neck, or pain that radiates as far down as the fingertips.
In some cases, the causes of your headaches or neck pain may be obvious — if you’ve recently been in a car accident or suffered a sports injury, for example. Often, however, problems can develop through poor posture or from having to perform the same action repeatedly. In addition, if you’re often obliged to spend too much time at your desk or in the car, the resulting muscle weakness and tension can add to the problem.
How can neck pain and headaches be treated?
Once we’ve pinpointed the main cause of your neck pain and stiffness, as well as headaches that we’ve determined stem from myofascial, or alignment issues, we’ll develop a treatment plan with you. In your sessions, we will first focus on pain reduction using our specialized treatment strategies. When you are ready, you’ll be taken through moves that build strength and flexibility. Our team of physical therapists will also help you learn how to better position yourself during your daily life by including ergonomic and posture tips to avoid relapses.

Read Kay H's story
For the last ten years I have periodically suffered from spasms in my neck and right shoulder, making it difficult to function. My doctor has sent me to numerous therapists to relieve the pain. I had a major episode and went to Jan Hanson. She immediately saw the problem and helped me, I felt amazed at how deftly she acted and the relief I felt. The next visit I saw a different therapist as Jan had left the practice. They pushed all the wrong buttons and sent me into a major spasm attack. I finally told her to stop, my pain had doubled. It was at this point I realized Jan possessed a special gift and I tracked her down and she was eager to help. Under her therapy I have a greater range of motion, less pain and have had only one minor spasm that I was able to stop on my own. I highly recommend her. She is professional, gives excellent service and follow up and did not make me feel like just another insurance claim.
