Wry Neck Physiotherapy | Move Physiotherapy Fremantle
Have you recently been diagnosed with a ‘Wry Neck?’ Or perhaps, you have woken up with a sharp pain in your neck, and you’re unable to turn the head in one direction.
A wry neck occurs typically after sleeping awkwardly, or from turning the neck too quickly. The sharp pain in your neck results from muscle spasm and joint stiffness.
But, there is good news! These episodes of neck pain are very short term in nature and typically resolve without intervention within a few weeks. Even better, is that with effective physiotherapy treatment we can often completely resolve these symptoms within days.
At Move Physiotherapy, we are experts in treating neck pain. Our physiotherapists can employ a wide range of techniques including joint mobilisation, massage and dry needling in order to relieve this muscle spasm and restore your movement.
We offer 1-hour initial physiotherapy consultations, in order to comprehensively assess your neck, identify contributing factors to your pain and provide treatment. Follow the link to book your appointment online today.
HOW CAN PHYSIOTHERAPY HELP?
Firstly! Physiotherapy can help get your neck moving again!
Your physiotherapist will employ techniques such as joint mobilisations or manipulation to restore normal movement to your intervertebral joints. They will also alleviate muscle spasm through massage, dry needling and stretching techniques.
Your physiotherapist can often restore your normal movement in your neck within just a few sessions.
