The neck is a very complex region of the body due to its involvement within the musculoskeletal and nervous system. Neck problems can present with symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, nausea, referred pain in the arms and shoulders, pins and needles, numbness or a tingling sensation.
The most common neck conditions we treat at Physio & Health Matters are Whiplash Associated Disorders. Whiplash is most frequently linked with road traffic accidents and caused by forced extension and flexion of the neck resulting in distortion.
This condition can be treated with spinal mobilisations; range of movement exercises; postural education through Clinical Modified Pilates; Acupuncture; traction; electrotherapy and soft tissue mobilisation techniques.
