More about Neck Pain
Neck pain is a very common musculoskeletal issue that Physiotherapy can help with. This is commonly caused by issues with the muscles, joints, or ligaments and is known as mechanical neck pain, which tends to respond well to Physiotherapy treatment.
The majority of neck pain is caused by a poor work set up, prolonged inactive postures, lack of movement, road traffic accidents, and poor sleep.
Finally, pain can be caused by irritation to a nerve, which can cause pain to refer to or shoot down one or both of the arms. As a result, it’s not uncommon to feel altered sensation in the hands such as pins and needles. If you are suffering from this it is important to have it looked at by a professional.
