Neck pain can arise for many reasons; a strain or sprain, arthritic changes in the neck, fatigue or weakness of the postural muscles.
Neck related symptoms may include headaches, upper back and shoulder tensions and even arm pain.
Osteopathy has been shown to be useful in helping people who suffer from uncomplicated mechanical neck pain, general aches and pains, neuralgia, and neck related headaches.
Osteopaths use hands on stretching, massage and gentle movement through the joints with the aim of increasing joint mobility and reducing muscle tension and cramping. With all spinal problems a combined approach works best, so osteopathic techniques will be advised alongside exercises, stretches and advice on posture.
We are always happy to talk to you about your specific pain or problem prior to booking an appointment, just call or email us and ask to speak to one of the osteopaths.
Before treatment it was difficult to turn my head. My neck and shoulder were very stiff. After treatment it felt much better. Neck release was fantastic.
I now know more about stretching and looking after my upper back, neck and shoulders.
