Are You Suffering With Neck Pain?
THE NECK CAN BE A VULNERABLE AREA THAT CAN HAVE EFFECTS ON THE ENTIRE BODY.
Neck pain or injury can often lead to prolonged stiffness or chronic pain, and can have a huge impact on your mobility and quality of life. At Dynamic Osteopaths, we look to identify exactly what met be causing or predisposing to your neck pain or discomfort, so we can tackle the issue and provide long-lasting pain relief.
SYMPTOMS OF NECK PAIN
The neck is hugely reliant on mobility, and is vastly influenced by posture. The neck can move more than 300 times a minute, meaning if it is in poor alignment it can become compromised very quick. Depending on the underlying cause, the symptoms of neck pain can take on many different forms. Some of the most common ones we see among our patients in Solihull and Birmingham include:
- Static positional pain
- Pain on active mobility
- Muscle spasms or tightness
- Frequent cracking
- Pain or altered sensation radiating from the neck down to the upper arm and hand
NECK PAIN CAUSES
The neck can be susceptible to prolonged irritation and chronic pain if left untreated. As such, neck discomfort can either be acute or chromic, and may be caused by a number of different injuries and conditions, some of which include:
- Muscle strains
- Whiplash injuries
- Sports related injury
- Nerve root irritation
- Disc Herniation
- Facet irritation
Neck pain is associated with so many different problems, this is why here at Dynamic Osteopaths we want to find out exactly what is causing your neck pain or discomfort. We will do so by taking a brief medical history, as well as performing a physical examination. We will go about asking questions about the pain to try and figure out what are the predisposing factors. Physical assessment will be to determine and asses neck range of motion and evaluate areas of soft tissue dysfunction.
We aim to achieve a conclusive working diagnosis, so we can provide a successful treatment plan. Furthermore, x-rays or MRI and additional imaging tests can be included if necessary to provide diagnostic confirmation, and obtain more insight into the underlying cause of your condition.
