Neck Pain in Youth

Neck pain in youth

A common misconception of physical therapy is its only beneficial for the older population, however this could not be further from the truth! As young adults, how often do you wake up with:

  • Headache
  • Backache
  • Neckache
  • Feeling run down

When this occurs we usually chalk it up to a long a work day, stressful week of class or just the busy flow of our days. These symptoms can be early warning signs of larger problems such as chronic neck and back pain and or high blood pressure and anxiety. Its important when we are younger to take charge of our health and to acknowledge these signs early to avoid longer lasting complications that can snow ball into major health concerns as we age.
A trained physical therapist can help assist you in managing those symptoms by teaching you proper ways to:

  • Stretch
  • Sleep
  • Exercise
  • Self massage for pressure relief
  • Improve your daily posture
  • Teach relaxation techniques

By learning these techniques and taking charge of your health at a young age you can avoid future health concerns. Do not put off the signs that your body sends you, seek early attention and be ready for those headaches and neck/backaches so that you can eventually self-manage and continue to move on with your busy life!
