What a pain in the neck!


Have you been suffering from neck pain or headaches? Did you know that physical therapy can help? A new study followed patients with neck pain, and grouped them into those that saw a PT within 4 weeks of neck pain, and those that saw a PT after 4 weeks of neck pain. The results showed that those patients that saw a PT early (within 4 weeks of experiencing neck pain) saw a drop in disability scoring by 3.4% per visit compared to only 1.8% per visit. That means if you saw a PT early, in 10 visits you would have a 34% improvement vs only 18% improvement if you chose to wait. The study also showed that patients that saw PT early had a better "bang for their buck", with faster improvement and less down time from work. This in turn shows 3rd party payers that going to PT early can lower overall healthcare costs. There have been similar findings with low back pain, as discussed in previous articles. If you are suffering from neck pain or headaches, choose Alliance Physical Therapy for full evaluation of your pain, hands on techniques to help decrease your pain, and a tailored treatment plan to help improve your daily life.
