Physiotherapy For Neck Pain

Do You Suffer from Neck Pain? We Offer Expert Help & Relief

  • We follow national guidelines on the management of spinal pain (NICE Guidelines), which ensures that your management is both safe and appropriate.
  • We assess and treat the whole spine, so if your pain is in the back of your chest, rather than in your neck, we can help here too.
  • Treatment follows a careful examination, exploring symptom behaviour, and selecting a personalised treatment programme.
  • You will be provided with advice and guidance on how to manage the symptoms when at work and at leisure and your treatment approach will include strategies to manage the problem when not in the clinic.
  • Treatment will involve all or some of the following: spinal manipulation or mobilisation (Maitland’s, McKenzie, Mulligan, Cyriax or other approaches), exercises to maintain the benefit, positioning, optimal posture at work and leisure, and plenty of advice and guidance.
  • We are trained to recognise signs of serious pathology and will refer you if this is suspected.

Here are some common terms and their meaning:

  • Spondylosis – medical term used to describe signs of ageing in the spine. It is inevitable that our spines show signs of ageing on X-rays or scans. No matter how young you look on the outside, or how fit and strong you are, natural changes take place in the spine, which show on X-ray.

There may be narrowing of the space between each vertebra, where the intervertebral disc is situated. The spine is ‘built’ to allow for this as we get older and we usually don’t experience any symptoms from it.

There may be some ‘thickening’ of the spinal joints. Again, we usually don’t feel any symptoms from this.

While spondylosis is inevitable as we age, we are less likely to experience symptoms if we maintain good postures, keep fit and move lots! When pain occurs, it’s important to get in touch so we can get you back on track.

  • Neuropathy – direct irritation of the nerve, somewhere along its path. This could be as the nerve comes out of the spine (radiculopathy) or somewhere along its path as it goes down the arm (entrapment). Did you know that you have three main nerves that supply the arm? The median, ulnar and radial nerves. Where you experience pain in the arm, alongside possible findings of arm weakness or tingling, can help us to identify which nerve is at fault. Then we can start working to get things better again!
  • There are lots of other terms that you may have heard of. Please contact us so we can find out more and point you in the right direction.
