NECK PAIN

Neck pain is a common complaint we get nowadays and most of us will have it at some point in our lives. Examples of common conditions are degenerative disc disease, neck strain, cervical spondylosis, poor posture and herniated disc. We can help in correcting spine mobility, posture, muscle imbalance and muscle spasm.

  • Pain that radiates down your arms or legs
  • weakness
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • headache
  • Inability to move your arms or hands
  • Inability to touch your chin to your chest
  • Bladder or bowel dysfunction

CAUSES

  • Poor posture
  • Working at a desk for too long without changing position
  • Sleeping with your neck in a bad position
  • Jerking your neck during exercise


Neck pain can occur due to several factors, including:

Whiplash Injuries

This injury due to muscles in our neck experience extreme tension due to the movement of the head back and forth in a fast state. Usually this happens during a vehicle accident, fall or collision. Patients with this problem will experience neck pain and stiffness, headaches, dizziness and blurred vision.



Cervical Spondylosis

This condition usually occurs in adults over 35 years of age. It occurs as ‘wear and tear’ that occurs on your cartilage and neck bones. Patients who face this problem will usually have severe neck pain and neck tension.



Cervical Slipped Disc

Cervical Slipped Disc is condition when disc protrudes between our neck bones. You will experience pain and tension in the neck. In worse cases, it can pinch nerves and cause headaches along with numbness to the hands.



Posture

Bad posture such as (head is too bowed/ too forward) when using a computer or mobile phone, will cause the neck muscles to be too tense. The neck also has to work more to accommodate the weight of the head. This in turn causes the neck to become sore and tense. Over time can cause headaches.



Tension Headaches

Tension headache is one of the most common types of headaches. Patients with this problem will experience pain in the head, a feeling of tightness in the neck and pain in the back of the eyes.



Flow of Treatment in Physiomobile

1) Assessment

First of all, physiotherapist will ask some relevant questions, record all of your health history and how the injuries you suffered may have occurred. Next, the Physiotherapist will examine you objectively through observations and Physical Tests based on a specific ‘outcome measure’.



2) Treatment

Treatment for neck pain will focus on reducing pain and increasing the range of motion of your cervical joints by using ‘Manual Technique Physiotherapy’ treatment methods and a structured and focused exercise program. In addition, the treatment session will also focus on improving the patient's body posture while teaching you to modify your lifestyle to suit your situation.



3) Consultation

In consultation, Physiotherapist will explain to the patient and caregiver about the patient’s condition including the cause of the problem the patient is experiencing based on anatomical and physiological knowledge, how to prevent the problem from recurring and the prescription of exercise at home.
