Neck pain can be debilitating in the worst cases which is why we are on hand to help you get back to your daily activities and symptom free. Neck pain can be caused by various conditions or as a result of injury. Unfortunately, we as humans have evolved to spend the majority of our working days staring at a computer screen and then smart phones and tablets in-between. We treat numerous patients who simply have their treatment to relieve the tension built up by poor working posture as a regular maintenance as we all need to work!
In fact, neck and back pain is becoming increasingly common in 18-44 year olds because of the amount of time they spend on their phone with 79% of this age group only walking around without their phone for two hours a day! This has resulted in an epidemic of ‘text neck’.
More and more people are seeking neck pain treatment, with a fifth blaming work and sitting still for long periods of time. 49% complain of neck pain on a weekly basis and 65% on a monthly basis – so it really is a common problem for many British adults. We aren’t moving about as much as we should and often find ourselves hunched over desks instead of keeping good posture.
While you can take some precautions at home such as a low firm pillow and firm mattress as well as using hot and cold packs to ease the pain – one of the best solutions for long term relief is physiotherapy and our neck pain treatment in Chelmsford can help you feel comfortable and pain free once again.
How Can you Treat My Neck Pain?
Depending on the cause of your injury and type of pain you are experiencing, we will recommend a neck injury treatment of physiotherapy that is best placed to relieve your pain and aim to give you full movement once again. Whether you have a trapped nerve, slipped disk or whiplash – our neck pain treatment will be expertly planned by our experts to get you back to health safely and comfortably.
Contrary to popular relief, a neck collar should not be worn unless recommended by a doctor, it is better to keep the neck moving. We will work with you through a number of low impact neck exercises to relieve the tension and pain in your neck area as well as posture recommendations to prevent the pain coming back.
If you are aiming to get back to sport or exercise, we’ll work with you to get you back to your best self once again in a safe way so you can get back to competing or training without causing further injury and delaying your recovery.
