Neck pain is often caused by postural issues such as prolonged sitting and computer use but also common following whiplash type injuries that happen in motor vehicle accidents. Stiffness and limited mobility due degenerative changes in the structure of the spine often causes pain, we can treat this with a combination of our manual therapy techniques and exercise programs. We always assess neck problems as part of an interconnected spinal column and address imbalances in other areas which can contribute to poor posture, neck pain or headaches.
The joints and muscles at the base of the skull and upper cervical spine are the most likely cause of headaches. Our physiotherapists have the specific skills to treat these structures with manual therapy but also to prescribe you with posture correction exercise and strengthening of the local neck stabilizer muscles.
