Physiotherapy for Neck Pain

Neck pain is a prevalent issue that can significantly affect daily activities. At Union Health and Performance in Squamish, a common inquiry is whether physiotherapy can effectively address neck pain. The answer is a definitive yes, and here’s how our approach can help.

Understanding Neck Pain:

Neck pain can stem from various sources, such as poor posture, overuse, accidents, or sports injuries. Symptoms can range from sharp pain and stiffness to headaches. Physiotherapy is a proven method to alleviate these discomforts.

The Role of Physiotherapy in Treating Neck Pain:

  1. Pain Management: Employing techniques like manual therapy, physiotherapy reduces pain and inflammation.
  2. Improving Mobility: Targeted exercises in physiotherapy enhance neck flexibility and range of motion.
  3. Strengthening Exercises: Building strength in the neck and upper back muscles offers better support and reduces the risk of recurring pain.
  4. Posture Correction: Correcting postural issues is crucial in neck pain treatment. Physiotherapists guide patients on maintaining proper posture to prevent future issues.
  5. Ergonomic Advice: For work-related neck pain, physiotherapists can provide ergonomic solutions to modify work environments.
