Your neck is a complex structure which can be susceptible to injury in the ligaments or muscles with sudden, improper or repetitive movements. These injuries can result in days of acute pain and swelling, followed by slow healing. The pain may be felt in the neck, head (as headaches), shoulder, or down the arm.
A thorough Osteopathic assessment will evaluate these signs & symptoms in order to differentiate from shoulder, arm or hand pathology- and ensure the right manual treatment is offered. Osteopathic techniques can aid the healing process and help reduce neck pain and any associated symptoms.
- Postural strain (improper position when sitting, reading or working at a computer)
- Trauma such as a blow, fall or car accident
- Sleeping with poor neck support or sleeping on your stomach
- Degenerated or bulging discs

At West Perth Osteopathy we use hands-on treatments to help to reduce neck pain, stiffness and discomfort, improve recovery time and promote blood flow and healing. We can also assess you to determine how we can use strengthening exercises to reduce the likelihood of recurrence or the frequency of recurrence in more chronic cases. We can also help you correct posture and improve nerve function if these are factors in your pain.
