Managing Neck Pain With Physiotherapy Treatment in Singapore
Neck pain is a common ailment among our patients in Singapore. There are many possible causes of neck pain and pain levels experienced vary across individuals. Unlike sustaining a hand or foot injury where you can isolate and rest the affected area while it heals, it is not easy to do the same for the neck. Hence, neck injuries can progressively worsen over time causing increased discomfort, pain, and interference with our daily activities. Physiotherapy treatment can help to identify and treat underlying reasons for neck pain, suggest strategies for pain management, and shorten recovery time.
Common Causes Of Neck Pain
Some common causes of neck pain experienced by Singaporeans include:
- WRY NECK (TORTICOLLIS)
- CERVICOGENIC HEADACHE (CGH)
- DISC HERNIATION
- CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS
- CERVICAL RADICULOPATHY
Various factors can affect the treatment of the ailment, such as a traumatic cause (e.g. car accident leading to whiplash) or the long-term nature of the condition (e.g. cervical spondylosis due to ageing). If you are experiencing neck pain or soreness after undergoing a surgical operation, post operative physiotherapy might be better suited to help build up your overall strength during recovery.
