what is neck pain?

Neck pain is usually described as soreness, pain or discomfort originating from the neck area.  

This is either from muscles, joints or nerves.

Neck pain can be very painful, debilitating and cause other symptoms at the same time such as Headaches, Dizziness or occasionally pain that down the arm.

The neck is made up of 7 vertebrae (bones), surrounding by many muscles & nerves exiting the spine.

Due to these important structures – it is essential you get a Full History & Examination of your neck pain to assess the cause. 

That way you can get treatment specific to your case & get to the source of the problem.
