Cervical pain can be complex if you are trying to do rehab on your own. At Turning Point Physical Therapy, it is made easy by using the right tools.
It starts with an evaluation. Most cervical pain has a component of weakness and muscle inhibition/atrophy. Furthermore, some cervical pain involves nerve compression and this needs to be evaluated by a qualified physical therapist. Muscles of the neck need to be tested. This is easily tested with a force gauge that measures your neck muscles to a tenth of a pound. Your neck strength should measure at least 40 to 50 pounds.
