Neck Pain

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Neck pain is a common disabling disorder. Like back pain many of these acute disorders, although frightening settle quickly with the correct management.

When they persist beyond expected healing time there are many factors that can play a role in their chronicity.

Like back pain arthritic changes in the neck identified by MRI are very common in people without pain, meaning that their presence does not necessarily mean that this is the cause of neck pain.

Many other factors play a role such as protective movement patterns, poor postural habits, lack of control of the neck and shoulder girdle. These patterns can be identified and corrected.

Other factors such as high stress levels, sleep problems, anxiety, fear and depressed mood can also sensitise the necks structures resulting in pain.

At body logic physiotherapy we can identify the factors that underlie your neck pain and set up a management plan for you.
