Neck pain is a world-wide phenomenon, it can cause much discomfort and it interferes with our daily living. Its triggering factors are many and its symptoms can range from a sense of minor discomfort to severe pains.
A Physiotherapist can help treat neck pain. Physiotherapy can help treat stiffness and discomfort, improve recovery time and promote blood flow. Physiotherapists can help to assess areas of improvement and provide treatment options for neck pain.
Neck pain is caused by a number of factors including:
Bulging disks, slipped disc, herniated disc, disc prolapse, disc extrusion
Acute or chronic injury
Sleeping without good neck support
Spinal vertebrae compression fractures
Often there is no obvious cause
The Physiotherapist can provide an assessment or examination to help determine the source of pain and its behaviour in the body. The location of the pain and how it behaves can provide an understanding of the underlying physiological problem and provide a treatment plan.
Common neck pain treatments may include:

o Heat therapy
o Ultrasound therapy
o Cold treatments
Gentle joint mobilisation/ manipulation
o Neck Stretching exercises
