Headaches and Neck Stiffness
Headaches can be caused by neck stiffness and strain. Patients struggling with daily headaches can suffer from additional symptoms, including:
- Visual disturbances
- Concentration issues
Over eight different nerve endings are found in the cervical plexus, which is present in the neck. Various nerve endings branch off throughout the spinal column, cerebral column, and shoulders. Pain from the neck can easily travel throughout the nerves and lead to pain throughout the back, shoulders, and head. Physical therapy to address neck pain is designed to release pressure on the nerves that lead to pain.
Symptoms of Neck Pain
Neck pain comes with a variety of symptoms. Some patients of car accidents will experience whiplash, which is soft tissue damage to the neck. Other patients can deal with chronic pain in the neck, sharp or dull sensations, and acute neck pain. Neck pain needs to be addressed quickly to reduce the risk of additional symptoms and possible complications. Common neck pain symptoms include:

What Causes Neck Stiffness and Pain?
The neck is in a crucial position in the body as it is connected to the spine and head. Physical therapy treatments for neck pain are designed to improve the spine’s alignment, reducing interference of neurological pathways. Neck issues can develop quickly or over time due to emotional and environmental triggers. Our experts will discuss your neck symptoms you are experiencing, and we will identify the source of pain.
