My neck hurts

Your treatment starts with a deep understanding of your unique needs

People who come to see me with neck symptoms are usually pretty unhappy – it’s a horrible area to be experiencing pain. In more minor cases, they may say they notice their symptoms just when they’re turning their head in one direction, or that they can’t look over their shoulder comfortably when they’re driving. In more complex cases, they may say their neck is sore all the time, that their head feels too heavy to hold up, that they have a constant ache at the base of their skull, or that they’re experiencing pins and needles or numbness down one arm.

If this sounds like you, we will start by talking through your history, and whether there was a specific incident that caused the pain.

We’ll discuss when your neck is sore: is it when you’re twisting to the right, or just any time you’re sitting down, or when you’re really stressed out at work?I then look at the posture and movement patterns throughout your whole body, especially with regard to the activity or posture that hurts you most, in order to work out where your problem is originating from.

Each neck problem has its own specific cause, and therefore the best way to treat each neck may be completely different.

Once we work out what’s going on, we can put together a treatment plan. The plan will be completely individual to you: based on whether your neck is the cause of your problem or whether it’s compensating for a problem elsewhere in your body, on your own goals and priorities, your diary, and how much time you’re able to devote to your recovery.
