Say Goodbye to Neck Pain with Physiotherapy Treatment

Neck pain

Neck pain is a common issue that many of us have experienced at some point in our lives. Whether it’s a result of poor posture, stress, or an underlying medical condition, neck pain can be uncomfortable and disruptive to daily life.

How does it cause?

  • Muscle Strain: One of the leading causes of neck pain is muscle strain. This can occur due to poor posture, overuse of neck muscles, or sudden movements.
  • Cervical Spondylosis: Cervical spondylosis is a degenerative condition of the cervical spine, resulting from the wear and tear of spinal discs and joints in the neck.

Symptoms of Neck Pain:

  • Pain and discomfort in the neck area
  • Stiffness and reduced range of motion
  • Headaches

When to Seek Medical Attention?

  • Manual Therapy: Physiotherapists use hands-on techniques such as massage, joint mobilization, and manipulation to reduce pain and improve the mobility of the neck.
  • Neck Traction: In some cases, neck traction devices may be used to gently stretch and decompress the cervical spine, providing relief for conditions like herniated discs or nerve compression.

Neck fracture:

A neck fracture is a serious medical condition that involves a break in one or more of the cervical vertebrae, which make up the spinal column in the neck

How does Physiotherapy help in post-neck fracture?

Ultrasound Therapy (UST):

  • Reduce Pain: UST can help in relieving localized pain and discomfort in the neck area, particularly if there is muscle spasm or inflammation around the fracture site.
  • Increase Blood Flow: The heat generated by UST can improve blood circulation in the injured area, which can promote healing and reduce swelling.
  • Soft Tissue Healing: UST can potentially accelerate the healing process of soft tissues, such as muscles and ligaments, that mayhave been affected by the fracture or the trauma.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS):

  • Muscle Relaxation: TENS can relax muscles and reduce muscle spasms, which can be particularly helpful if there’s muscle tension or guarding around the neck fracture site.
  • Pain Relief: TENS can help in pain management by blocking pain signals from reaching the brain and by releasing endorphins, the body’s natural pain relievers.


Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in the rehabilitation and management of individuals with post-neck fracture and neck pain. When a person experiences a neck fracture, whether it’s a result of trauma or underlying medical conditions like osteoporosis, the road to recovery can be challenging.
