Neck Pain Worcester

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?

Many people experience neck pain, whether the pain is caused by issues relating to poor posture, or overuse or working too hard, sitting at the 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

If you are one of the many individuals who suffer from neck pain, our proven Physiotherapy approach may provide the solution you have been seeking. 

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. 

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

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

  • Persistent neck pain in the morning 
  • Stiffness in the neck when reversing in the car 
  • Clicking neck noise when turning 
  • Continuous aching neck muscles 
  • Tingling in the hands or fingers

Causes of Neck Pain

By far the most common cause of neck pain relates to the effects of poor posture.  In order to understand the impact of poor posture, we must first consider why spinal alignment within the neck is so important. 

When your head is in normal alignment, it weighs roughly 5 kgs and is precisely balanced on top of the seven vertebrae in your neck. Your muscles work hard to maintain this position and can endure short periods of variation. However, when we hold awkward positions for extended periods, the fine balance is disrupted, leading to strain and irritation of the nerves, muscles, joints, ligaments, and discs in your neck. 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. 

Whiplash, arthritis, and sports injuries are other common sources of neck pain. 

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.
