As osteopaths, we are highly trained in treating patients with neck pain. Our approach goes beyond just focusing on the neck. We will conduct a comprehensive examination of the entire spine to identify any additional contributing factors to neck pain. By considering the entire spine and addressing other predisposing factors such as stress and poor ergonomics, we aim to provide a comprehensive treatment approach that not only alleviates current neck pain but also helps prevent its recurrence in the future. Our main goal is therefore to treat the root cause of the pain and provide long-term relief and improved overall well-being for our patients.
Osteopathy focuses on the musculoskeletal system, including the neck and spine, to improve health. The first step in the treatment process is to identify the specific structures in the neck or spine that are causing the pain. This may involve a physical examination, assessment of posture and movement, and possibly imaging tests such as X-rays or MRI scans.
This will be followed by a tailored patient-centred treatment plan. This plan may include manual techniques such as spinal manipulation, soft tissue massage, and stretching, as well as exercise prescription and other rehabilitation techniques.
Osteopathy takes a holistic approach, considering the whole body’s interconnectedness, and aims to relieve pain, restore movement, and improve overall neck and spine health.
We provide osteopathic treatment for patients of all ages who are experiencing neck pain, including children, adults, pregnant women, the elderly, and athletes. Our treatment plans and techniques are customised to each patient’s specific needs and condition.
