Find Your ‘Forever Fix’ For Your Neck Pain
Our cervical spine is an amazing, yet complex structure! Think of it this way. It supports our head which, on average weighs up to 5kg, whilst allowing the freedom of movement to reverse the car in the driveway, check our blind spot and look over our shoulder! No other region of the spine has such freedom of movement. However, the combination of complexity and mobility makes the neck highly susceptible to injury.
There are many potential causes of neck pain including strain from poor postures, injuries and accidents, whiplash and osteoarthritis. We have written more about common causes of neck pain below.
Physiotherapy treatment is highly effective in the treatment of neck pain. In acute cases of neck pain and tightness, your physiotherapist can often restore movement and alleviate a significant portion of pain within the first visit using a combination of techniques such as joint mobilisation, massage and dry needling. In chronic cases, your physiotherapist can identify of weakness that may be contributing to your neck pain and provide a long term solution.
