Patients experiencing neck pain walk through our doors almost every day. So why is it so common? Simply because everything from poor posture and prolonged computer use to lack of sleep can cause discomfort.
It’s also important to note that injury to the neck can lead to referral of pain, pins and needles and numbness to other areas of the body, such as the shoulders, arm and upper back.
What are the different types of neck pain?
We see and treat a variety of neck injuries, including:
- Postural neck pain
- Bulging or protruding discs
- Acute wry neck
What are the possible ‘side-effects’ of neck pain?
Simply put, neck pain is extremely uncomfortable. There’s nothing worse than waking up in the morning unable to move your neck. It renders you close to useless for the day ahead. Unfortunately for some, the pain doesn’t end there. In fact, neck pain can lead to other dysfunctions such as headaches, vertigo, dizziness and blurred vision.
