Neck pain osteopathy uses soft tissue massage and gentle manipulation of the neck to relieve pain.
Your neck is a delicate complex of nerves, bones and muscles
It’s an incredibly flexible and mobile part of the human body. It connects your spinal cord to your head while protecting a host of blood vessels, nerves and more. It’s a mass of skeletal muscle that supports your head, while allowing you to turn it in almost any direction.
It’s no surprise that two in three people experience acute or chronic neck pain during their life. Because it’s such an active joint in your body, with so many connections to your skull and upper body, the pain can be a sign or symptom of many different issues. Fortunately, physical therapy can help alleviate many of these.
Neck pain or stiffness can also lead to back pain and headaches. Issues with nerves in your neck may even lead to you experiencing weakness, numbness or pins and needles in your arms and legs.
We use a variety of osteopathic techniques to help reduce pain and encourage healing in your body.
