Neck Pain Birmingham

Is your painful neck impacting your daily life, your sleep, and your ability to participate in activities you enjoy? 

What is Neck Pain?

Many people suffer from neck pain, which can be caused by problems related to poor posture, overuse or overworking, or sitting at a computer. 

At Midlands Physiotherapy, we have treated a large number of patients with neck pain, which can be a long-lasting issue. However, our distinctive approach, which involves manual therapies (hands-on treatment) and exercises to prevent recurrence, has enabled individuals to restore proper neck movement and become pain-free once again.

About Neck Pain

For those suffering from neck pain, 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. 

Neck problems can also result in headaches, shoulder pain, TMJ or jaw pain, pins and needles in the hands, carpal tunnel syndrome, and upper back pain. 

If you experience any of the following symptoms on a regular basis, please contact us for a comprehensive assessment: 

  • Persistent morning neck pain 
  • Stiffness in the neck while reversing in the car 
  • Clicking neck noise when turning 
  • Constant neck muscle aches 
  • Tingling in the hands or fingers

Causes of Neck Pain

The effects of poor posture are the primary cause of neck pain. To comprehend the impact of poor posture on the neck, we must first acknowledge the significance of proper spinal alignment. 

Your head weighs about 5 kgs and in normal alignment it is very carefully balanced on top of your seven neck bones (vertebrae).  Your muscles work very hard to maintain this position and can easily withstand short periods of variation.  The problem arises when we assume awkward positions for prolonged periods, the fine balance is disturbed and the nerves, muscles, joints, ligaments and discs of your neck become strained and irritated.  In fact, the tension in your neck and shoulder muscles doubles for every 2-3 cm’s that your head is forward 

The pressure and strain on the neck accumulate over time, resulting in chronic pain, and even minor changes in posture can have a significant impact. When coupled with the demands of modern life, it’s understandable why neck pain is such a common issue. 

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