Neck pain treatment at Nuneaton Osteopathic Clinic has proved successful in relieving many of the causes and symptoms surrounding this debilitating problem. Neck pain can be caused by poor posture at work (especially when working in front of a computer for eight hours a day) overloading or imbalance of the neck and shoulder musculature by carrying heavy and awkwardly shaped containers or carrying a heavy bag on one shoulder or the other. It may also be an indication of other underlying problems such as meningitis.
Other common and more home related causes of neck problems are watching TV or a computer monitor placed to one side, i.e. not directly in front of your eyes (TVs at the end of a long lounge) too many or too few pillows on your bed, and some sports that require excessive use of the neck muscles (football, rugby, wrestling, gymnastics, road cycling etc.)
Here is a video demonstrating some home massage that can help to ease the pain.
Osteopathy can relieve the pain and stiffness with muscle stretching, massage and manipulation of any restricted neck joints. I may also use interferential treatments and/or ultrasound to reduce muscle spasm and swelling in the neck and shoulder tissues.
