The most common cause of neck pain is ‘Cervical spondylosis’. This medical term is used to refer to age-related ‘wear and tear’ that can affect bones and tissues in the neck. However, many people with cervical spondylosis experience no noticeable symptoms. In fact, most people will have cervical spondylosis to some degree by the time they are 60.
Other causes of neck pain include a bulging of the intervertebral disc between the vertebra, pinching of the nerve, wry neck (locked neck) and whiplash.
At Caboolture Physical Therapy Centre, we use a variety of techniques, including manual therapy (mobilisation, manipulation and deep tissue massage), Pilates (to strengthen core muscles and increase flexibility), acupuncture, hydrotherapy and Exercise Physiology to reduce neck pain and increase activity as fast as possible.
