Neck Pain

The neck is part of the spine and therefore suffers from the same general problems as those covered under the section of back pain. The neck has far greater movement than the rest of the spine and its function is closely related to that of the upper back, ribs and shoulders.

Muscle fatigue and tightness is a common complaint causing pain and restriction of movement. This may cause headaches (see Headaches).

Whiplash frequently affects the neck in road traffic and other accidents, and can cause strain of the muscles, joints and ligaments. Treatment of neck conditions (and any other compromised areas) aims to promote the quality of movement by moving the joints gently, combined with stretching and massage of the muscles.
