Neck Pain

Neck pain can affect your daily life more than many other problems and can be very disconcerting. Common complaints include whiplash, postural pain or muscle imbalance, disc protrusions, spondylosis (wear and tear), acute torticolis, sprains and strains and nerve irritation. Symptoms may refer into your arms and hands in the form of pain, pins and needles or numbness. Headaches may also be experienced due to stiff joints or overactive muscles.

A full assessment will determine the cause of the problem with treatment including joint mobilisations, soft tissue massage, heat/ice therapy, acupuncture, muscle energy techniques, postural and ergonimic advice, progressive exercise therapy and activation of the deep stabilising muscles that are often neglected.

Whether a sporting injury or a gradual onset of symptoms, physiotherapy can help. Thomas has recently specialised in shoulder treatment and with great success.

The shoulder girdle is a very complicated collection of joints and a detailed assessment is required. Some problems addressed by physiotherapy include rehabilitation from dislocations and surgery, impingements, rotator cuff tears, muscle imbalances, sprains, osteoarthritis, frozen shoulders and scapula instability. Neck problems may also present as shoulder pain and skilled assessment will attempt to differentiate the two.

Treatment includes identifying and correcting any attributing factors such as muscle imbalance or posture, soft tissue massage, electrotherapy techniques, specific stretching and the latest research based strengthening exercises alongside joint mobilisation.
