Neck Injury KawanaJune 27, 2012
There are a number of commonly injured structures in the neck, including discs, facet joints, nerves, ligaments and muscles. These structures can become injured due to poor posture, traumatic incident (e.g. motor vehicle accident) or repetitive stress. The most common symptom of injury is pain in the neck, but structures in the neck often refer pain to the shoulder, the head (as in cervicogenic headache), the upper back and the arm. If a nerve is injured in the neck, pain can radiate down the arm, and may include symptoms of pins and needles, numbness and weakness.
Physiotherapy plays an important role in the rehabilitation of neck injury. Our team of physiotherapists use manual therapy, soft tissue therapy, acupuncture and exercise to restore your pain-free neck movement as soon as possible.
