Are you troubled by neck pain?

Do you feel discomfort or pain in your neck? Are you stuck in a cycle of being given prescriptions and told to rest, without seeing the results you’d like? Do you wish there were more treatment options to improve your discomfort and mobility without the need for more pain medication? If this sounds like you, we can help.

Pain, stiffness and lack of mobility in the neck can be particularly difficult to deal with, as it can restrict your ability to move your head freely, negatively impacting your quality of life. It can affect common activities such as driving, sitting, walking, sleeping, even looking left and right or working at your desk.

What can cause neck pain?

It is no surprise that neck pain is often prevalent in everyday life. There are many factors such as lifestyle, injury or changes in the body that can lead to discomfort and pain.

Prior injuries and conditions

Prior injuries such as whiplash, sports injuries or falls can all contribute to persistent pain in the neck, hindering the healing process and overall mobility. Conditions such as herniated discs, arthritis and sprains can also cause or add to stiffness and pain in the neck. These injuries and conditions and their impact on an individual can vary, with mild cases often being resolved with rest and physical therapies such as osteopathy. More significant cases may sometimes require surgery or other treatment options.

Pregnancy and neck pain

There are multiple reasons why pregnancy can have an affect on neck pain. Weight gain during pregnancy can cause postural changes causing strain and discomfort. Hormonal changes can cause differences in sleep patterns and restless nights, increasing the chances of discomfort. It is also a time of heightened tension and stress within the body, further adding to the potential for pains or sprains in your neck.

Ergonomics and work environment

We spend a lot of our time working hard, often in the same location for extended periods of time. This environment can often contain contributing factors that cause discomfort in your neck. For example, the quality and position of your chair, the height of your workstation or your general posture while sitting. Your choice of mattress can also play a pivotal role, especially if it is old, or perhaps not suited to your specific needs. All of these aspects together can have a significant detrimental effect.

Lifestyle is a factor in many neck pains


Lifestyle choices influence the pain and strain we feel on a daily basis. When considering neck pain, some of the most common and contributing factors include habits like smoking, which can reduce blood flow to important parts of the neck. Another important aspect is body weight, with an increase in weight putting additional strain on parts of the body such as back, legs and neck. Sleep health and sleep position can also affect the amount of discomfort, with restless nights typically involving repeated and unnatural movements, placing further pressure on the neck.

Exercise routine

A lack of regular exercise or generally reduced movement can have a significant effect on pressure and pain manifesting in the body, particularly within the neck and back. Individuals who lead largely sedentary or inactive lifestyles may find themselves more susceptible to these types of pain.

What our clinicians can offer you

What our clinicians can offer you

Osteopathy is a treatment option that can bring you relief, while also aiming to prevent your symptoms from becoming worse with time. Our osteopaths use techniques such as soft tissue massage, muscle stretching or a specially tailored and personalised exercise plan, focusing on manual gentle manipulation instead of pain medication or more invasive treatment options. Osteopathy is one of the 14 recognised Allied Health Professions, with our specialists training for a minimum of 4 years and registering with the General Osteopathic Council here in the UK. Osteopathy is also recognised by the NHS and major medical insurers.
