Neck pain can be treated through options like massaging, physiotherapy, functional manual therapy, etc. Using non-surgical pain management techniques is suggested to make sure there are no side effects on the body.

Neck pain is a common pain disorder and approximately 14-22% of the population reports of suffering from chronic neck pain. Conditions like having a stiff neck, sharp pain in one spot, soreness, etc. are certain symptoms of having neck pain. Severe neck pain can also be indicated through conditions like numbness in the neck, trouble with lifting the objects, problems with walking, etc. Let’s read through a few pointers which should be kept in mind for treating chronic neck pain:

     Heat and Cold Treatment

Using cold therapy helps in reducing swelling and pain from the painful area. Using ice packs can help in closing the small blood vessels temporarily and prevents the swelling from getting adverse. Using the ice and heat therapy alternatively can also be beneficial in treating the neck pain.

     The Right Posture

If you are feeling severe neck pain because of the wrong posture, then correcting it should be the firsts step. One should place all the items including the chair, monitor and keyboard being used in a manner so that the head and the body stay aligned. One should make a habit of sleeping on the back with not-so-hard pillow and mattresses.

     Massage

Using the massage therapy for treating chronic neck pain includes the usage of hands to manipulate soft tissues -- which will in turn help in increasing blood circulation and reducing muscle tension. This particular technique also helps in improving the overall well-being of the body. To treat chronic neck pain, deep tissue massage is suggested which includes using friction and strokes for connective tissues and muscles. Pain management specialists also use special oils to give the treatment of aromatherapy for treating the neck pain.

     Physiotherapy

Physical therapy helps in reducing pain and stiffness from the area prone to pain. This particular form of therapy also helps in improving the head and neck range of motion. Physiotherapy helps in the dynamic strengthening of the neck and its musculature. The overall neck posture changes with the help of this technique.

     FMT (Functional Manual Therapy)

FMT will include soft tissue massaging which will include the application of pressure on the soft tissues of the body including muscles. This technique helps in relaxing the muscles and easing pain in the soft tissues. The mobilization technique includes using movements such as pull, push and twist. This technique helps in loosening the tight tissues and reducing the pain. It also helps in ensuring overall flexibility and alignment. This is an advanced physical therapy which focuses mainly on soft tissues, muscles, etc.
