Neck & Shoulder Pain
“End Daily Neck Pain, Improve Your Posture And Restore Health - Without Medication or Surgery and Without Having to Call Your GP!”
Have You Got a Sore Neck?
When you have a lack of stability and strength in your back and shoulder muscles, it causes neck pain, stiffness and cervicogenic (referred pain from the neck) headaches.
But what causes it? And how can Osteopathy help?
It might feel like the pain is coming from a problem with your neck – and it might be. But in most cases, neck pain is caused by an issue further down, in your middle to upper back and shoulders – where weak and unstable muscles are causing postural strain.
Postural strain is the stress that your daily life places on your neck when you regularly use a desk or computer at the wrong height. Sleep with more than one pillow, sit awkwardly at work or spend all day looking at your smartphone.
It’s also caused by your body’s natural adaptation to accidents, injury, repetitive movements, and historical surgeries. But whatever the cause or catalyst was for you. The resulting postural strain from these activities, injuries or operations causes weak and shortened muscles, compressed nerves and pain in the upper cervical spine and the neck.
For you, neck pain could be mildly uncomfortable. For others, severe and unrelenting daily neck pain, stiffness, and immobility limits their activity and leave them unable to do much at all. In addition, you may have headaches and migraines, shooting pains, and muscle spasms accompanying the pain in your neck.
It's there every time you turn your head – and it seems to get worse when you get into bed and try to sleep. Exercise aggravates it but lying down hurts too. So the gym and playing sport are out of the question – and you're popping pain pills every couple of hours to get through the day. The pain consumes every waking moment and stops you from doing everything you love.
Does This Sound Like You?
If it does, don’t worry.
Osteopathy can help you get your life back.
We see treat patients with neck pain all the time. It’s one of the most common pain problems we see in the OSTEOWORKS clinic.
“But Why is This Happening to Me?”...
“Why Do I Still Have Neck Pain When I Have Been Resting And Taking It Easy For 6 Months+?”
Everyone has a sore neck sometimes (especially past a certain age), right? Wrong. Your neck and shoulders should be flexible, pain-free, and supple, regardless of age. But whether you're young or old or somewhere in between, the pain won't just disappear if you leave it. It's tempting to believe it will if you rest and take it easy. But in our experience, it doesn't. Instead, in most cases, the pain gets worse.
Have You Had Neck Pain For More Than Seven Days?
If you’ve had neck pain for longer than a week, you’ve probably already been to see your GP. They likely told you to rest, take anti-inflammatories and take it easy. Then escorted you out of their office with the age-old, “Come back and see me if it doesn’t get better”.
Unfortunately, most of the patients we see end up back in their doctor's office (before they come to us). They told them to take more painkillers and get more rest because things didn't get better.
