About Neck Pain

If you’re one of the many that suffers with neck pain, you will be pleased to know that our proven Physiotherapy approach may offer the solution you have been searching for. 

Neck pain is a frequent issue, with roughly one in 10 individuals experiencing it at any given time. This is unsurprising when we take into account the lifestyle habits of today, such as spending extended periods of time in front of a computer, watching television for prolonged periods, and an increasing incidence of poor posture, particularly forward head posture. 

Issues within the neck can also lead to headaches, shoulder pain, TMJ or jaw pain, pins and needles in the hands, carpal tunnel syndrome, and upper back pain. 

If you often experience any of the following symptoms, please contact us for a thorough assessment: 

  • Persistent neck ache first thing in the morning 
  • Stiffness in the neck while reversing in the car 
  • Clicking sound in the neck when turning 
  • Constant aching of the neck muscles 
  • Tingling in the fingers or hands

Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain is most commonly caused by poor posture. To comprehend how poor posture affects the neck, we must first understand the importance of correct spinal alignment. 

In a normal alignment, your head weighs approximately 5 kgs and is meticulously balanced on top of the seven vertebrae in your neck. Your muscles work tirelessly to maintain this position and can cope with short-term variations. However, assuming uncomfortable positions for extended periods can disturb the delicate balance, causing your neck’s nerves, muscles, joints, ligaments, and discs to become strained and irritated. For every 2-3 cm that your head is forward, the tension in your neck and shoulder muscles doubles. 

As time passes, the strain and pressure on the neck accumulate, resulting in chronic discomfort and even the slightest changes in posture can have significant effects. Along with the pressures and demands of modern life, it’s no wonder that neck pain is so prevalent. 

Neck pain is frequently caused by whiplash, arthritis, and injuries sustained while participating in sports. 

Treatment for Neck Pain

If you’re experiencing neck pain, our Physiotherapy treatments offer a practical solution. After a thorough examination, including history, orthopaedic, neurological, and spinal tests, our skilled Physiotherapists will design a personalised treatment plan to reduce pressure, restore movement, and prevent further pain. The approach may include postural advice, spinal manipulation for joint mobility, massages to relieve muscle tension, neck exercises to promote movement, strengthening exercises, heat/ice therapy for pain relief, and a contoured pillow for optimal sleeping support.
