Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that is aimed at helping people feel better, move better and stay pain-free by means of assessment, diagnoses and treatment of simple, and/or complex conditions. Physiotherapists work in a number of different streams and settings however we are most commonly known for our work in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. This multifaceted specialty most commonly revolves around the ligaments, muscles, bones and joints in the body and their role in contributing to pain and dysfunction.
As musculoskeletal physiotherapists, we are no stranger to dealing with neck pain, just as our clients are no strangers to suffering from it. Neck pain can interfere with life’s daily activities and causes major discomfort. It can be exacerbated by stiffness, poor posture, muscle weakness or imbalance, injury history, and a number of other things. Furthermore, symptoms are not necessarily limited to the neck but may also refer to the arms in the form of pain and/or numbness, or may even cause headaches.
No matter what the severity of your symptoms, Physio can help! Our aim is to work with you in an effort to help you feel better and free of your symptoms in the shortest amount of time possible. We may utilise interventions such a soft tissue massage, dry needling, trigger point release, postural advise and correction, exercise and/or manual therapy (though usually a combination of most, if not all the above) to help settle your symptoms. In addition, to ensure the longevity of our success with you in managing your neck pain, we strive to equip you with the movement, knowledge and skills you need by means of education and self-management strategies so that your neck pain no longer becomes a problem again down the track.
