Whether it is a sharp pain, dull muscular aches, headache, or an inability to fully move your head, a sore neck can be a very frustrating symptom.
At PhysioPlus we find that the cervical spine joints become stiff or locked much like a rusty hinge.
This in turn usually causes protective muscle spasm of some neck and shoulder muscles and weakness of others causing muscle imbalance.
The longer this abnormal scenario exists, the harder it is to reverse the habit. Your neck posture alters, which strains adjacent joints and muscles, the condition deteriorates resulting in neck pain.
There are many causes of neck pain. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your neck pain so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the cause.
At PhysioPlus, we find that it is a combination of neck joint mobilisations, muscle stretching, soft tissues mobilisations, dry needling acupuncture, neural tissue, strength exercise and postural techniques that are required to reverse some well established poor movement patterns and habits.
Common neck complaints treated at PhysioPlus include whiplash, disc herniation, facet joint pain, disc degenerative disease, tension headaches, arm pain, “pinched” nerve, repetitive strain injuries and many more.
