Why We Treat Neck Pain

Neck pain is the world’s 4th leading cause of disability, with 30% of humans being estimated to experience neck pain annually. Many episodes of neck pain resolve quickly, but nearly 50% continue to cause long-term pain or frequent occurrences.

Neck Pain FAQs

The regular forms of neck pain that most people suffer from, those that relate to poor posture, stress, muscle weakness and old injuries do not as a rule cause pins & needles in the feet. If you have a serious issue within the cervical (neck) spinal canal it could potentially cause pins and needles in the feet, very few cases of neck pain would relate to such changes. Regardless of the probable cause, if you have ongoing pain or pins & needles anywhere you should get them checked by a trained professional.

The best treatment for neck pain is the one that works for YOU without being too risky or invasive! Unfortunately there is an element of unpredictability to who will respond best to which treatment. Spinal Manipulation, Acupuncture, Acupressure, Rehab Exercises, Scar Tissue Release, Float Tanks & Alexander Technique are all worth your consideration to mention a few. It is worth adding that very few cases of neck pain respond well to surgery and pharmacology in the long term. 

Stress is a major cause and a major trigger for neck pain. When we experience trauma, emotional stress, mental stress and depression many of us clench the muscles in our necks as part of our physical response to the situation we find ourselves in. 

Clenching the neck muscles for protracted time windows can easily cause tension and inflammation in the neck. In some instances, stress related muscular tension in the neck can act as a trigger or irritant which causes old neck issues to become symptomatic after extended ‘symptom free’ periods. In other words neck issues can lay dormant and be woken up by stress.
