A Complete Guide On Neck Pain Physiotherapy
Understanding neck pain
Neck pain is one of the most common complaints and is often caused by overuse, stress, or injury. Neck pain can be mild to severe and may go away without any treatment, but if it lasts more than a few days it should not be ignored.
Symptoms of neck pain include stiffness in the neck muscles and difficulty moving your head from side to side or up and down. You may also feel tenderness around the base of your skull where it meets your upper spine (cervical) vertebrae.
If left untreated for long periods of time these symptoms can progress into numbness, tingling sensations throughout arms fingers; loss of control strength with hands due to constant pressure on nerve fibers running through the cervical area causing them to become compressed pinched leading to chronic conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Types of Neck Pain

This type of pain is often felt on one side of the neck and can cause stiffness in the muscles around your shoulder blade (scapula) or upper arm. This may be due to stress from sitting at a computer all day long, poor posture while sleeping not getting enough restful sleep habits;
This is when a person’s muscles are strained due to overuse such as sitting at an office desk for long periods of time without getting up every now then taking breaks – stretches.

Nerve Pain (Cervical Radiculopathy)
The nerves that run through your neck may become pinched or squeezed due to bone spurs on vertebrae herniated discs osteoarthritis degenerative disc disease (DDD). This causes numbness tingling sensations throughout arms fingers; loss of control strength with hands due to constant pressure on nerve fibers running through the cervical area.
