What Is Neck & Shoulder Pain?

Our neck and shoulders support our body and are very vulnerable to strains. Particularly as this is where most often we hold tension due to an increase in stress caused from lifestyle and work expectations.

Neck and shoulder pain is one of the most common forms of pain. Almost all of us have suffered from it at some stage in our lives.

It can be caused by a number of factors such as poor posture, muscle strains, workplace or sporting injuries, trauma, arthritis, tendonitis and many other degenerative conditions.

Common symptoms of neck and shoulder pain include:

  • Stiff neck
  • Aching muscles
  • Tight or restricted shoulders
  • Headaches
  • Decreased mobility

Some individuals develop neck and shoulder pain for no apparent reason, pain can be directly related to a past injury or due to a build up in tension over time. As the source of the pain is not always obvious our practitioners can help you discover and provide treatment for the underlying cause of your condition.

If you’re experiencing neck and shoulder pain, reach out to Flex Osteopathy Adelaide and we’ll work on it together.

How Can Osteopathy Help My Neck & Shoulder Pain?

When you visit our clinic one of our caring osteopaths will come up with a strategy to decrease the pain you are experiencing in your neck and shoulders.

Firstly, we will discuss your medical history and perform a thorough physical assessment. Then you’ll go through some gentle yet effective treatment, including various stretches and exercises to bring your body back into alignment.

To further ease your pain, our osteopaths will recommend various lifestyle changes and provide you with a personalised recovery plan. This approach will accelerate your healing process and help you with lasting pain relief.

As each individual’s cause of neck and shoulder pain is different, treatment will vary from patient to patient.

If you’ve been experiencing pain and tension for a prolonged period, if your condition worsens, or even if you’d just like an expert opinion, visit our clinic and have one of our friendly osteopaths assist in treating your discomfort.
