No More Neck Pain

If you suffer with acute or chronic neck pain you will understand the physical and emotional distress this can cause; lack of sleep, inability to focus on tasks, pain when relaxing as well as when active.

We completely understand what you are going through and have helped many thousands of people get over their pain and return to a normal fully functional life.

Neck pain (with or without referred pains into the arms or head) is normally as a result of inflammation/strain/stress affecting the spinal discs, joints, ligaments, muscles or nerves.

Shoulder & Neck Pain


The causes of neck pain are usually multifactorial. The physical reasons can include bulging or herniated discs, degenerative changes, joint arthritis (Spondylitis) however there are non- physical factors that can contribute including stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, occupation, hobbies/interests and social drivers such as income and home life.


Neck pain can persist for years however with the correct treatment it is very manageable and often curable. With the correct input it is possible to see a change within a few weeks but most problems begin to improve within 6-12 weeks.

Review / Reassessment

At Week 6 or 12 we review progress and plan next steps – this may include discharge with self maintenance advice and home exercise or continuation with your treatment programme (more challenging exercises, work or sport specific input). Treatment intervals at this point normally occur every 2-4 weeks

Important Information

Rehabilitation is not a quick fix and can be longer due to age, length of symptoms, and the extent of degeneration and weakness. It is very important that you attend your treatment sessions as suggested by your therapist and follow through with your re-assessment. The recommendations in this action plan are based on your individual condition and examination.
