Neck pain and whiplash

Neck pain is a very common condition.

 

It may occur as a result of an injury or car accident, you may just wake up with it (wry neck) or it may be of gradual onset due to arthritic conditions or poor posture.

The following structures can be the source of your pain

  • Discs – a prolapsed (slipped) disc can cause pain in your neck or shoulder, which may radiate as far as your hand.
  • Muscles – with neck pain the muscles in the affected area can go into spasm (cramp). Poor posture especially when sitting for long periods can cause problems in the muscles of the neck and upper back.
  • Joints – stiffness and degeneration of the spinal column
  • Ligaments – spinal ligaments sprains are generally caused by over-stretching or trauma such as a fall or whiplash injury.
  • Nerves – compression of a nerve in the neck can cause pain, pins and needles and numbness in your shoulder, arm or hand.

Treatment of neck pain

  • Manual techniques – manipulation or mobilisation to restore normal mobility and alignment of the tissues and joints of your neck.
  • Posture correction.
  • Soft tissue techniques – massage, frictions, trigger point therapy, acupressure and stretching.
  • Dry needling/Acupuncture to relieve muscle spasm and pain
  • Therapeutic exercise – stretching and strengthening. To maintain good posture the muscles surrounding the spine must be of appropriate strength.
  • Nerve Mobilization techniques to reduce compression on the nerve restore normal pain-free movement.
  • Electrotherapy – ultrasound, interferential and laser speed up the rate of recovery of injured tissues and decrease pain. T.E.N.S. is used in treating chronic pain. Electrical stimulation of weak muscles may also be necessary to aid their recovery.
  • Traction.
  • Heat treatment is great a getting the muscles to relax.

Treatment of acute neck pain can be very successful and symptoms can settle quite quickly. However in certain conditions especially where there is pain in the arm, symptoms usually take slightly longer to improve but generally do very well with physiotherapy.
