Neck Stiffness & Pain

woman neck pain

There are many causes of neck pain including stress and anxiety, whiplash, using laptops, prolonged use of musical instruments; driving or poor sleeping positions. Neck pain can also be caused by wear and tear and other disease processes or disc problems.

The pain may radiate into your shoulder or arm and you may have ‘pins and needles’ in the arms and fingers. It is important to tell your osteopath as much detail as possible¬† to assist them in making a diagnosis.

Your osteopath will assess what is causing the problem and give treatment accordingly. This will be accompanied by home care advice and suggestions to help eliminate or minimise the problem.
