Except in certain cases, surgery as a remedy for neck pain is seen as a last resort; widely preferred is physical therapy. But even when surgery is necessary, it doesn’t take the place of physical therapy; in fact, the latter usually follows the former, to help restore strength and flexibility in the patient’s neck.
Treatments We Provide
Physical therapy for the neck post-surgery can be summed up in one word: exercise. The two kinds of post-surgery exercise we provide for the neck are those that strengthen and those that improve range of motion. Among these are the chin tuck, the shoulder shrug, jaw-lowering, arm-and-shoulder-retraction, and certain kinds of stretching.
