Neck Pain is something we see very often and can often range in severity and type from person to person. Most commonly we see neck pain as a result of long periods of sitting, whether at a desk at work or from sitting on the couch at home watching television.
If you have to sit for long periods due to work, it is always important to punctuate your sitting time with periods of activity in order to give your neck and other muscles a break from the sustained sitting posture which could be straining them. Strengthening and lengthening these muscles can reduce the incidence of this dull, achy neck pain from coming on and our physiotherapists are well versed in the identification and treatment of this.
Other types of neck pain may be as a result of more serious pathology such as whiplash, cervical radiculopathy, concussion etc. PhysioHub treats these conditions regularly and will work with you and your medical team to ensure you have a speedy recovery.

Your treatment plan will include a graduated return to activity through exercise and other modalities such as dry needling or massage to treat both your symptoms and physical limitations as a result of your neck pain.

Neck pain can result from various causes, including poor posture, muscle strain, injury, or underlying medical conditions. If you experience persistent or severe neck pain, especially accompanied by radiating pain or numbness, it's advisable to seek physiotherapy. Early intervention can help identify the root cause, alleviate pain, and prevent the development of chronic issues.

Physiotherapy for neck pain involves a comprehensive assessment to determine the underlying factors contributing to the pain. Treatment may include targeted exercises to improve posture and strengthen supporting muscles, manual therapy techniques to release tension, and education on ergonomics. Sessions are tailored to individual needs and may also incorporate modalities such as heat or cold therapy. The goal is to reduce pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall neck health.

Yes, poor ergonomics, such as prolonged sitting with improper posture or incorrect workspace setup, can contribute to neck pain. To prevent such issues, it's crucial to maintain good posture, ensure proper workstation ergonomics, and take regular breaks to stretch and move. Physiotherapy can provide guidance on ergonomic adjustments and exercises to mitigate the impact of prolonged periods of sitting.

While muscle issues are common contributors to neck pain, it's essential to consider other potential causes. Neck pain can also result from issues like herniated discs, arthritis, or nerve compression. Physiotherapists are trained to assess and differentiate between various causes of neck pain. If there are concerning symptoms such as persistent pain, weakness, or radiating sensations, it's advisable to consult a physiotherapist for a thorough evaluation and appropriate management.
