Neck pain and headaches are a relatively common complaint that affects a great number of people.

Whether it’s your first experience of neck pain, you’ve had it for some time or you’ve been involved in an accident then you have arrived at the right place.

We have extensive experience in the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of low back pain. Our therapists have a wide range of manual therapy techniques and knowledge regarding effective spinal rehabilitation.

Our philosophy is about more than just getting you pain free. Although that’s what we want as quickly as possible.

To successfully treat neck pain, it isn’t about getting pain free now AND keeping you there for the long term. Giving you to have the confidence and ability to challenge yourself at whatever activity you choose.

Three Stages of Treatment

Pain is often the last symptom to arrive and the first to go. This often tricks the owner of an injury (you) into stopping treatment before the underlying causes have either completely resolved or you are in control of them. Without getting to this point there is a risk of re-injury.

As a result we look at your treatment over three phases to get the best result

Listen to how your problem happened and how it is affecting you
Posture and if it influences your symptoms
Neck, upper back and shoulder mobility
Individual joint movements at neck and thoracic spine
Muscle strength in your neck, shoulders and arms
Nerve testing in the upper limbs

Specific to you
Understand what is going on and why
Personnel and targeted treatment to get you out of pain using a combination of manual therapy, education, exercise
Get you moving well as soon as possible

Prevent recurrence of your injury
Lifestyle, strength and exercise programs
Building confidence and resilience by putting together a program for you to get the results you want
