Pain Relief for

Back and Neck

Post Injury Repair and Pain Relief for Back and Neck

Located in Manhattan 28th ST, NYC

How We Help

Back and neck pain are all too common. In fact, 80% of Americans will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. And neck pain isn't far behind. Intense exercise, long hours in front of a computer, car accidents, the natural aging process, sports injuries old and new, mental stress and more can all individually and collectively wreck havoc on the delicate structures that make up neck and back - the discs, facet joints, nerves, ligaments, cartilage, bones and muscles.

The spine - neck (cervical), mid back (thoracic) and low back (lumbar) is one of the most vital parts of our bodies, for pretty much everything we do. So proper care and treatments for the back should be a central priority if you want to live a healthy, vibrant and long life. 

Whether it is neck pain from whiplash, low back pain due to a herniated disc, muscle spasms from intense exercise or poor posture from sitting at a desk all day, our highly skilled team of expert massage therapists and personal trainers can help you prevent, manage and recover from many neck and back-related injuries..

 

On Your Mark NYC partners with Physical Therapists and other injury therapy specialists to ensure that all of our clients receive the best care for their specific neck and back injury.

Injuries and conditions that we treat include:

  • Herniated Discs

  • Pinched Nerves

  • Muscle Spams

  • Whiplash

  • Tension Headaches

  • Chronic Low Back Pain

  • Scoliosis

  • Poor Posture

  • Excessive Lumbar Lordosis

  • Excessive Thoracic Kyphosis

  • Scapular Dyskinesis

About Our Treatments

Our treatments for back and neck pain vary depending on the particular injury - the severity, duration, frequency with which it has occurred, symptoms and client goals. Regardless of these specifics, our treatments and training sessions are always customized and tailored to each person and each injury. There should never be a one size fits all approach to injury prevention and rehabilitation because not every technique and approach works for every person and every injury or condition. 

For example, a triathlete with low back pain may require very different interventions than a soccer player  or new mother with similar symptoms. Each person's needs, goals and activity requirements will vary in these three scenarios. So while there is of course overlap in how we approach each circumstance, being able to adapt and integrate different protocols is something we emphasize.

For all of our clients, a  thorough postural and movement assessment to help identify both local and global dysfunctions are always preferred. In certain circumstances such as with severe low back or neck pain, this isn't always possible because certain movements may unnecessarily provoke one's symptoms. Moreover, for one person, tight calves could contribute to low back pain whereas with someone else they don't.
 

Our trainers and therapists incorporate range of motion and manual muscle testing of all the relevant musculature to assess strength, stability, mobility and flexibility in the relevant muscles and joints.
