    • The treatment programme for neck pain may include Soft tissue massage, muscle stretching, joint articulation, acupuncture & manipulations, exercise or a combination.

  • OSTEOPATHIC TREATMENT

    Open or Close

    After assessing the function & quality of neck & joint movement. David assess the muscle & fascial tensions, along with it's relationship to the spine and head.


    • He may apply soft tissue massage, to soften muscle tension with positional release, acupuncture & trigger point therapy.

    • He may follow this up with articulation & manipulation for joint release where necessary.

    • We also use gentle Cranial Osteopathic techniques, to rebalance the rhythmic function of the spine & cranium.

    • Recommended exercises for correcting poor posture, are also a part of treatment & consultation.

  • TENSION

    Open or Close

    Most muscles of the body relax completely, when they are not being used. However, some muscles (known as 'anti-gravity muscles'), have to work all the time in order to keep your body upright.


    • Muscles at the back of your neck, must always be tensed, otherwise your head would fall forwards when you are sitting or standing.

    • When these muscles work too hard, or are not strong enough, it can cause neck pain & tension headaches.

    • People who are worried or under stress, often sub-consciously tighten their muscles more than is necessary, to hold their head upright.

    • Tension headaches, are very common & are often wrongly called migraines.

    • Working at a computer station & sitting slumped with head forward, loads the neck muscles & may create tension headaches.

    There is evidence that the effects of breathing pattern imbalances, result in a variety of negative;


    • psychological,

    • biochemical,

    • neurological

    • biomechanical influences & interferences.

    All of which are capable of modifying each of these three subsystems.


    Changes in the oxygenation of tissues; (including the brain), causes;


    • smooth muscle constriction,

    • heightened pain perception,

    • speeding up of spinal reflexes,

    • increased excitability of the corticospinal system,

    • hyper-irritability of motor & sensory axons,

    • changes in serum calcium & magnesium levels,

    • encouragement of the development of myofascial trigger points.

    All or any of which, are capable of modifying normal motor control of skeletal muscle.


    There is evidence that breathing rehabilitation & Breathing Pattern Disorders BPD, negatively influences motor control, neurological sensitisation, muscle behaviour, pain threshold & balance.


    It is also evidenced that reversing these tendencies, by restoring more normal breathing patterns, has positive ramifications in many individuals.

  • ARTHRITIC TISSUE CHANGES

    Open or Close

    With everyday use over many years, the discs & the facet joints become worn.

    • This wear varies from person to person & the variable circumstances.

    • The discs become thinner & this causes the spaces between the vertebrae, to become narrower.

    • Also, 'spurs' of bone, known as osteophytes form, at the edges of the vertebrae & the facet joints.

    • In a way this is a particular form of osteoarthritis & it is known as, Cervical spondylosis.

  • NON SPECIFIC NECK PAIN

    Open or Close

    Many people develop a stiff & painful neck, for no obvious reason.


    • It may happen after sleeping or sitting in a draught, or perhaps after a minor twisting injury, for example while cleaning or gardening.

    • The underlying cause for this type of neck pain, is not fully understood, so it is called 'non-specific neck pain'.

    • Having non-specific neck pain does not mean that your neck is damaged permanently It often happens in people, whose necks would appear completely normal, under an x-ray.

    • If it doesn't resolve within a couple of days, it is wise to have an examination & treatment, before the body begins compensating, with altered posture, adapting to the pain.

There are many causes of physical pain. An assessment can be very beneficial if you have been suffering from pain for a while, or have recently had a baby, or are about to take up or change an exercise regime.
