Neck pain is a common complaint and can affect people of all ages. The majority of neck pain is caused by stiffness in the spinal joints of the neck, combined with excessive muscle tightness in the muscles of the neck and upper back region.
Many factors can contribute to the development of neck pain and stiffness, but the most common we see here at The Glen Back Care and Sports Therapy is poor posture, often associated with the use of computers or laptops. Even our frequent use of mobile phones and ipads can lead to neck pain if we do not pay attention to correct posture and are looking down excessively.
Our treatment typically involves massage therapy to relieve excessive muscle tension, combined with gentle mobilization of the spinal joints of the neck. This is a very effective treatment approach which will quickly ease your painful symptoms. We then teach correct posture techniques along with gentle exercises for the neck to prevent another episode of neck pain in the future.
