We are able to test each individuals’ neck strength and compare them to age-matched norms (other men or women their age and weight). For example if you are a 50 year old, 145 pound, female we can show you how you compare to other women who are 50 years old and weigh 145 pounds. This shows us how strong your neck would if it was healthy.
This allows us to effectively document muscle weakness and gives us baseline measurements allowing us to more effectively predict a positive outcome as well as follow your progress as we increase strength to normal levels.
A progressive strengthening program is then developed to isolate and strengthen the weakened area.
Because we can isolate the source of the neck pain and rehabilitate it specifically we are able to see a significant improvement and patients report less pain and more mobility within the first few weeks oftentimes within the first few treatments. Even patients who have suffered from neck pain for years note significant improvement rather quickly.
Our approach is very powerful and we have thousands of satisfied patients to prove it. Many of our successful patients had tried other treatments including physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic treatment, epidurals and medication prior to treating at our office without achieving the results they had hoped for, but after receiving care from The Center For Total Back Care they are able to resume a pain free lifestyle. Many returning to activities they haven’t done for years and never thought they would be able to perform again.
