The goal of neck pain treatment in Durham at Upright Athlete is to get you back to doing the activities you love. Neck pain shouldn’t keep you from living your life. Unfortunately neck is very common but with the right treatment can be eliminated without the use of pain medications or surgery.

At Upright Athlete our goal is to get you back to feeling 100% as quickly as possible.

At Upright Athlete you are always treated as an individual and will spend 45 minutes, one on one with your therapist. During your neck pain evaluation, your physical therapist will assess your range of motion, strength, pain and function. Your therapist will not only evaluate your neck, but will look at your spine and shoulders as well.

Based on the results of the examination, your physical therapist may perform hands on, manual therapy to help release any tightness and reduce pain. You will also be given a home exercise program.
