Neck Pain

Suffering with neck pain and stiffness?

Osteopathy is a safe and effective treatment for many types of neck pain. Read on to learn more about how I can help or call 020 8520 5268.

Causes

Neck pain is usually caused by muscle or joint problems such as:

– Muscle strain or overuse.

– Ligament sprain

– Irritation or inflammation around the joints of your spine

– Disc problems (e.g. slipped disc)

– Wear and tear to the spine

Neck pain can be caused by other health problems which require different treatment. If this is the case I will refer you to your GP for further investigation and appropriate care.

Symptoms

Neck problems may cause:

– Neck pain.

– Stiffness in your neck and shoulders.

– Pain around your shoulders or into your arms.

– Tingling or numbness in your arms.

– Headaches.

Treatment

Osteopathic treatment for neck pain varies according to the cause. Generally treatment aims to reduce pain and restore normal movement to the problem areas.

It is believed that this allows your body to heal itself more effectively and quickly.

Treatment usually includes:

– Stretching tight muscles.

– Encouraging movement in stiff joints using mobilisations.

– Strengthening weaker areas with simple exercises.

Osteopathy can be a little uncomfortable to receive and may cause minor stiffness and aching for a short time after treatment. It should not be painful!

Most people can expect to feel improvement within 3 sessions, but you may need more treatment to fully recover. I will explain how many treatments you’ll need during your consultation.
