Seven tiny bones (vertebrae) placed on top of one another make up your neck. These bones are encircled by several different muscles and separated from one another by discs. Because it supports your head and enables you to look around, your neck is crucial.
There are many potential causes of neck discomfort. When something large falls on your head or you experience whiplash from a vehicle accident, your neck may be instantly damaged. Additionally, chronic conditions like osteoarthritis or postural problems can cause neck discomfort over time.
Most diseases that cause neck discomfort can be treated with physiotherapy. Exercise treatment, such as range of motion exercises and strengthening, are sometimes combined with manual (hands-on) therapy, such as massage, joint mobilisation, or manipulation. Physiotherapists may combine their techniques with others, including acupuncture, taping, and TENS.
