Neck Pain what can I do?
Almost 31 million days of work were lost last year due to back, neck and muscle problems, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS). People suffering from neck pain are those with sedentary desk based jobs, poor work postures and who do repetitive work.
Neck pain can just come on for no reason and recovery is difficult to predict. The main problems people suffer from are mechanical neck pain, WAD (whiplash-associated disorder) or cervical spondylosis (neck pain due to age related wear and tear to bones). Some also suffer from headaches (cervico-genic headaches) due to their neck pain.
Hands on physiotherapy treatments including; massage, mobilisation, manipulation, myofascial release, neural release, combined with stretching and exercises is an effective treatment for neck pain. Also acupuncture is very good to release the tight muscles associated with neck pain, and is especially good for those suffering from headaches too.
Please be aware of your body and take advice from your GP before exercising if you have any neck pain/headaches, or send us an email for advice and guidance.
