Should I do physical therapy or massage therapy for neck pain?

May11th 2020

Doing massage therapy for neck pain can help reduce the severity of acute neck pain and help muscles relax. But, strictly doing massage therapy will likely not solve the underlying problems, even after the severe pain is gone.

ReQuest Physical Therapy offers massage therapy in conjunction with physical therapy for neck pain when indicated. This allows us to utilize both disciplines without creating an extra cost or using an additional visit through your insurance. We evaluate and address the movement and posture of the head, upper neck, neck and upper back, muscle tightness in the neck and shoulders to address the underlying cause of the pain.
