QUIZ: Do You Understand How to Treat Neck Pain?

Take our quiz to test your knowledge. Click here.

Here’s How Your Physical Therapist May Help

Your physical therapist may advise you to:

  • Rest the painful area by avoiding activity that causes worsening symptoms in the neck or arms.
  • Stay active around the house, avoid prolonged bed rest, and go on short walks several times per day. Movement will decrease pain and stiffness, and help you feel better.
  • Perform the simple neck movements he or she will teach you. These can help reduce stiffness and pain and restore normal motion of the neck.
  • Apply moist heat or ice packs to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes every 2 hours.
  • Sit in firm chairs. Soft couches and easy chairs may make your problems worse.
  • Change your work ergonomics to decrease stress on your neck.
  • Consult with a physician for further services, such as medication or medical tests.
