Neck Pain

Neck pain can result from injury to any of the structures in the neck including the muscles, ligaments, nerves, joints and discs. The causes of neck pain are varied ranging from an acute muscle strain to chronic postural related pain with associated stiffness and muscle weakness. Depending on the structure which is injured and the extent of injury, neck pain may be localised or may refer into the shoulder, down the upper limb, or up towards the head and face.

Neck pain is one of the most common complaints with up to 70% of the population suffering from it at some stage in their lives. Sufferers of neck pain also report high recurrence rates and for this reason it is vital that any incidence of neck pain is managed appropriately as soon as possible.

“Due to a serious Repetitive Strain Injury in my shoulder/neck I have been attending Portobello Physiotherapy on and off over the last several years, during which, the treatment I have received has always been of the highest standard. The staff are both friendly and welcoming and have always answered any questions I’ve asked about my injury. Exercise programmes were set out for me, explained in detail and, in my case, altered to suit how my shoulder/neck react to them. As long as I put the time in to doing the exercises and follow the advice of the Therapists I always see results within a short space of time. I would highly recommend Portobello Physiotherapy to anyone, as the care and attention I have received on my visits has always been second to none.”
