Neck Pain

Let's treat your neck pain

Improve your stability and head movements.

The neck is a vital part of our body that is designed for strength, stability, food, air and nerve communication. Our neck is made up of a network of bones, joints, nerves, tendons and muscles that connects our head to our body. The neck creates a path for the spinal chord and holds up the head, which weighs an average of 5 kilograms! The neck performs a heavy-duty task of making sure we have stability, mobility and strength in our head movements, so no wonder neck pain is so common.

  1. Acute
    Acute neck pain happens quite suddenly and heals within days to weeks. It shouldn’t last too long but if it does you need to see a doctor. Acute neck pain is usually in the muscles, ligaments, joints or discs.

    Symptoms:
    There are two main types of neck pain:
    • Stiff neck- makes turning difficult
    • Sharp or stabbing pains
    • Soreness or tenderness

  2. Chronic
    Chronic neck pain lasts a lot longer than acute neck pain and usually lasts for more than 3 months. It is important that you see a doctor for neck pain treatment if your pain still persists after 3 months as you could have a more serious problem.

    • Tingling
    • Numbness
    • Weakness that affects shoulder, arm or fingers
