Neck pain and headaches can be linked. Hardly surprising, given how close they are to each other! Of course, many other things can cause headaches, so make sure you’ve seen your GP about them.
If you have neck pain one of us should be able to help you. We understand your neck pain because we see and treat it on a regular basis in the clinic. Treatment could have you returning to your normal daily activities, so don’t let the pain get you down!
Before treating you we’ll take a full medical case history. We’ll want to know about past injuries and illnesses, and about any medication you’re taking. We’ll examine the injury and look at how it’s effected by other areas of your body. We might also carry out orthopaedic, neurological or other medical tests. This is so we know it is safe and appropriate to treat you. If we think you need to be referred for scans or investigations, that’s what we’ll do.
Once we have made a diagnosis we will explain this to you and talk you through the treatment options available to you. Our aim is always to find the underlying cause so we can stop the pain, and also to help you find ways to prevent it coming back.
It’s not always easy to work out which therapy will work for you, that’s why we have our 20 minute free consultations. You can come and tell us about the pain or the injury and we’ll let you know if we think we can fix it.
And if we can’t we’ll help you work out what to do next.
