Cervical pain is the presence of pain in the cervical region that affects the cervical vertebrae and can therefore extend to the front and back of the neck, head and even the arms.

In a cross-cutting manner, the readaptation team will carry out an intervention through therapeutic exercise

Depending on the degree of injury, and together with the application of technology such as ultrasound-guided percutaneous intratissue electrolysis (EPI), and Echoguided Percutaneous Percutaneous Neuromodulation, Shock waves, Imoove or Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MBST), we will work with a program of control exercises, global postural reeducation (RPG) and/or strength exercises.

The cervical traction consists of the separation of the articular surfaces and elongation of the soft parts, achieving the reduction of pressure on the nerve roots. Thus, relieving the pain associated with the dysfunction.

Treatment with Redcordwhich utilizes the suspension in the air of part or all of the body by means of special ropes and pulleys to activate muscles, facilitating proper body alignment and efficient movement patterns through the use of suspension.
