Neck pain and whiplash

Neck pain is common and is an area we very often treat. There are many potential causes, such as:

• Postural problems
• Age related ‘wear and tear’
• Immobility
• Unsuitable seating or bedding
• Inappropriate work station set-up
• Trauma
• Sports injuries
• Stress and anxiety

We often see patients presenting with pain in the neck and upper thorax (mid-back) as a result of trauma following a road traffic accident. These problems may manifest themselves in the future. Therefore it is important for us to gather information regarding your accident history.

Common neck ache is frequently due to stiff and painful spinal joints. We train extensively to be able to identify the specific area of immobility and increase the movement to help ease the pain at each specific spinal segment.
