In this age of smart phones and tablet use we are seeing an increase in neck pain and headaches.
This is one of the more recent causes of neck pain. Neck pain may be the result of sport injuries, work related injuries, motor vehicle accidents or may occur for no apparent reason.
Neck pain may lead to a restriction of movement in any or all movements of the neck, it may lead to referred pain in one or both arms, it may also produce a feeling of pins and needles and or numbness in various parts of the upper limb.
The optimum treatment of neck pain is to seek early intervention and manage your symptoms quickly. Also a quick return to all of your normal duties promotes a faster recovery rate. Generally recovery is swift, however there are times when recovery does not proceed as expected and you should seek further advice.
