What causes neck pain?

Many people experience neck pain due to their posture when sitting all day at their computer. Others experience neck pain due to whiplash injuries, impacts during contact sports or injuries from a fall. Arthritis, stress and tension can also lead to neck pain but sometimes there’s no definitive cause.

Early intervention and treatment by our osteopath or back pain physio in Melton can help resolve postural issues, heal injuries and prevent degenerative conditions from escalating.

Two main types of neck pain

The majority of neck pain is felt on one or both sides of the neck and can radiate into the shoulders. There’s rarely any tingling, numbness or loss of strength and it may be accompanied by headaches.

Then there are pinched nerves that produce pain in the neck and often radiate down the arm and sometimes into the hand and fingers, depending on which nerve is pinched.

This latter type of nerve compression is often due to degenerative changes in the neck and may include pins and needles or numbness. Without treatment, pinched nerves tend to become worse unless the cause is identified and treated.

How can our osteopath or neck pain physio in Melton help you?

The priority for our osteopath or neck pain physio in Melton is to establish the cause of your neck pain. They may ask to view any recent x-rays or MRIs or request that these are performed to aid with a diagnosis. They will also ask about your daily activities, medical history and whether you have experienced any recent injuries.

With an accurate diagnosis, your osteopath or neck physio develops a treatment plan designed to lessen your pain and provide optimum support and stability in your neck. Book Now
