Treated at our Amherst clinic
We are highlighting Jason for the Patient of the Month as an example of incorporating neck strengthening in our treatment plan. He came to us with unresolved neck pain after falling asleep with his neck titled back. He saw his PCP and an X-ray showed mild bone spurs in his neck. He was then referred to PT.
Jason underwent traditional rehabilitation at Apple Therapy in Amherst. His treatment plan included point dry needling in his cervical muscles, stretching, cervical traction and strengthening. The video demonstrates using the Neckslevel machine in the clinic to perform resisted neck flexion and extension movements. After 6 visits, his pain was significantly reduced, and he can now perform full pain free ROM.
