Neck pain is a common, painful and debilitating problem which can often be so severe that patients are unable to move their head at all. Naturally this results in a great reduction in work,social and sporting activity and overall quality of life. Neck pain arising from mechanical problems in the spine is seen and treated on a daily at our clinics. It is also common for persistent headaches and migraines to be a result of problems in the neck (cervicogenic headaches). In these cases treatment of the underlying neck problem results in the relief of the headache symptoms.
