Neck Pain: Optimal Physical Therapy is Your Path to Relief

Neck pain is incredibly common, affecting millions of people each year. It can be caused by various factors, from poor posture, auto accidents to a sports injury, and range from a dull ache to a sharp, stabbing pain. But no matter the cause or severity, neck pain can significantly disrupt your daily life, making even simple movements uncomfortable.

The Culprits Behind Neck Pain:
