 If you’ve got a neck, you’ve probably had neck pain! 

We’ve helped thousands of patients suffering from neck pain which can often be quite debilitating or simply just an inconvenience. It is commonly experienced by, but not limited to office or desk workers or those sustaining hunched forward postures for extended periods of time. The neck region comprises many layers of intricate muscles and nerves making it one of the most sensitive areas of your body. Our physios will work with you and guide you through the rehab process to relieve your neck pain, restore your range of motion and get you feeling 100%. Neck rehab involves restoring the flexibility of the muscles, range of motion in the joints of your neck, as well as re-activating the intricate muscles in the front and back of your neck. Once we have a neck injury these tiny muscles in the front and back of the neck will tend to ‘switch off’ or not work effectively rendering you susceptible to ongoing neck injuries down the track.

This highlights the importance of following through with the specific rehab exercises we can give you to make sure your neck pain goes away and stays away.

Common neck injuries we treat include:


- Pinched nerves
- Disc bulges
- Sprained joints
- Wry neck
- Muscle strains
- Cervicogenic headaches

 

*No doctors referral needed
