Neck – Our neck connects our head to our torso and is made up of 7 vertebrae. These vertebrae are the building blocks of our cervical spine that allow for attachment of a vast array of muscles, protection for our spinal cord and help keep our 5kg (or so) head balanced and in place.

The neck can create local symptoms that may be acute or chronic, headaches referring into different areas of the skull, and even refer pain down into the finger tips.

Below we have examined in greater detail four different types of neck pain, their sources and the best management for these conditions.

Neck pain along with the lower back pain is a very common presentation in physiotherapy clinics. As such our physios have seen plenty of necks and can assist you with diagnosis and management of your pain today.
