NECK

PAIN

Neck pain is a very common complaint seen by our physiotherapists. It is most often caused by poor posture and stress. Sustained forward head positions or 'poke-neck' posture whilst sitting at a desk is often identified as being a source of tight muscles causing neck pain and related headaches. Neck pain may also be caused by trauma such as whiplash from a car accident or sporting injuries.

 

Signs and symptoms that may be related to conditions arising from the neck:

  • Pain in the neck or shoulder

  • Pain radiating down the arm

  • Pins and needles

  • Headaches

  • Dizziness

  • Stiffness in the neck

Our physiotherapists are highly experienced and fully-equipped to treat your neck pain and the conditions that may be contributing to it. They will provide you with a tailored treatment program including hands-on manual therapy, a specific exercise program and appropriate education and advice to help reduce the likelihood of your neck pain reocurring.
