The neck, also known as the cervical spine, serves to separate the head from the torso. It comprises seven bony sections, labeled C-1 to C-7, with cushioning cartilage discs between each bone. This part of the body not only bears the weight of the head but also safeguards the spinal cord. Moreover, the neck exhibits great flexibility, allowing the head to turn in various directions. Issues within the neck can lead to problems like headaches, Neck pain, TMJ or jaw discomfort, numbness in the hands, carpal tunnel syndrome, and upper back pain.

What Causes Neck pain ?

The neck plays a crucial role in supporting the weight of the head and enabling various movements like rotation, bending, extending, and tilting. It’s also susceptible to conditions that lead to discomfort and limited mobility. Neck pain (NP) can arise from several factors, including:

Injuries: Accidents, falls, or overuse can lead to injuries, such as rotator cuff tears or dislocations.

Muscle strains: Often the most common cause of NP, neck strains result from overusing neck muscles, often due to prolonged periods of hunching in a chair.

  • Arthritis: Conditions like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis can result in Neck pain and stiffness.

  • Nerve Compression: Pinched nerves in the neck or upper back can radiate pain into the Neck.


What are Symptoms of Neck Pain ?

Pain: One of the primary indicators is persistent, aching, or sharp discomfort within the Neck joint or nearby regions.

  • Arm numbness or tingling

  • Headaches

  • Shoulder pain

Experiencing sharp shooting pains or a persistent dull ache in your neck.

Assessment for Neck Pain Physiotherapy at Westmead

At Recovery Rehab, Westmead, Principal Physiotherapist Sujanya Iyengar, begins the assessment process for Neck Pain by attentively listening and setting clear treatment goals. She starts by doing a whole-body assessment from head-to-toe of nerves, muscles, joints, spine, flexibility, and strength to identify any underlying biomechanical problems. She then compiles a comprehensive list of potential causes and systematically tests each one to determine the most effective treatment, aiming for substantial improvement (30-50%). Ultimately, she identifies the primary contributing factor, often referred to as the ‘driver,’ in the patient’s condition.

This enables her to create a tailored treatment plan to relieve your Neck pain and improve your functional mobility.
