Trauma, such as a sprain, whiplash or fracture, is the most common cause of neck pain. However, less obvious damage comes from slumping over smartphones (text neck), using ergonomically incorrect workstations, persistently grinding teeth and back and shoulder injuries.
While the cause and nature of neck pain can vary, a comprehensive treatment plan with phases of patient education, in-person or virtual physical therapy services and encouraging a return-to-work mindset is crucial in facilitating recovery for injured workers.
