The neck is a commonly treated part of the body in physical therapy. Motor vehicle accidents often result in serious whiplash injuries. Whiplash is essentially a serious joint sprain spanning multiple spinal levels associated with high-impact injury. Herniated and bulging discs are treated most effectively in a conservative manner via physical therapy with surgery being a last resort. Other conditions, including spinal stenosis and cervical spine arthritis, as well as general postural deformities, may ultimately result in vague diagnoses of neck pain. This sort of diagnoses is an excellent reasons to see a physical therapist. Post-surgical indications include disc repair and spinal fusion surgery.
