Neck Pain Telford

Does your painful neck affect numerous aspects of your life, such as your daily routine, sleep, and ability to engage in activities you love? 

What is Neck Pain?

Neck pain is a common problem experienced by many people, whether it is caused by issues related to poor posture, overuse or working too hard, or sitting at the computer. 

At Midlands Physiotherapy, we have treated many patients with neck pain, which can often be a persistent problem. However, through our unique approach of using manual therapies (hands-on treatment) and exercises to prevent recurrence, we have helped individuals regain proper neck movement and become pain-free once again.

About Neck Pain

If you are one of the many people dealing with neck pain, our proven Physiotherapy approach may be the solution you have been seeking. 

Neck pain is a very common problem, with around one in 10 people suffering from it at any given moment. This is not surprising when we consider the habits of modern life, such as sitting for long periods in front of a computer, extended periods of watching television, and an increasing prevalence of poor posture, particularly forward head posture. 

Headaches, shoulder pain, TMJ or jaw pain, pins and needles in the hands, carpal tunnel syndrome, and upper back pain can all be caused by problems in the neck. 

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

  • Persistent neck ache first thing in the morning 
  • Neck stiffness when reversing in the car 
  • Clicking neck noise when turning 
  • Continuous aching neck muscles 
  • Tingling in the hands or fingers

Causes of Neck Pain

The most prevalent cause of neck pain is poor posture. To understand how poor posture affects the neck, we must first recognise the importance of proper spinal alignment. 

In a normal alignment, your head weighs about 5 kgs and is carefully balanced on top of the seven vertebrae in your neck. Your muscles work diligently to maintain this position and can tolerate brief variations. However, assuming uncomfortable positions for extended periods can disrupt 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 goes by, the strain and pressure on the neck build up, resulting in chronic pain, and even the slightest alterations in posture can have significant repercussions. When combined with the stress and demands of modern-day living, it’s no surprise that neck pain is so prevalent. 

Arthritis, whiplash, and sporting injuries are among the most frequent causes of neck pain. 

Treatment for Neck Pain

Our comprehensive approach to neck pain treatment using Physiotherapy is effective. Following a complete examination, including history, orthopaedic, neurological, and spinal tests, our expert Physiotherapists recommend a customised treatment plan to relieve pressure, restore movement, and prevent recurrence. The approach may include postural advice, spinal manipulation for joint movement restoration, massages to ease muscle tension, neck exercises to increase mobility, strengthening exercises, heat/ice therapy to manage pain, and a contoured pillow to ensure proper sleeping support.
