Therapy

  • Physical therapy– Our neck pain specialist may recommend you to some physiotherapists to correct your posture, alignment, and teach you some neck-strengthening exercises.
  • Other Therapy-involves using heat, ice, electrical stimulation, and other measures to relieve pain and prevent a recurrence.
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)- Electrodes are placed in the affected area of the skin and electrical impulses are passed through electrodes to relieve pain.
  • Traction– Traction is one of the oldest methods of physical therapy. It uses weights, pulleys air containers to involve targeted muscles action. Traction is strictly done under the supervision of medical professionals and physical therapists to avoid any inconvenience.
  • Short-term immobilization– A soft collar providing collar support or braces for back support are examples of short-term immobilizing devices that prevent back/neck movement, relieve muscles, and do away with pain.
