How Physiotherapy Can Alleviate Stiff Neck Pain

Physiotherapy for Stiff Neck Pain

Stiff neck is a common complaint amongst clients and oftentimes they are unable to turn or tilt their head without discomfort. This condition typically stems from muscle tightness, joint stiffness, poor posture, or even stress.

While over-the-counter pain relievers and heating pads may provide temporary relief, addressing the root cause of the stiffness is crucial for long-term recovery. This is where physiotherapy comes in.

Our physiotherapists delve into the root cause of a stiff neck with a thorough assessment where muscle imbalances or joint dysfunctions can be identified. Subsequently, a personalized treatment plan is developed to alleviate pain and improve mobility. Treatment sessions may include manual therapy, gentle mobilizations, and tailored exercises to address muscle imbalances, release tension, and improve neck mobility.

Through gentle stretching, strengthening exercises, and hands-on techniques, physiotherapy can help release muscle tension, improve range of motion, and restore proper alignment to the neck and spine.

Don't let a stiff neck hold you back, schedule a consultation with one of our clinicians today at our physiotherapy clinic in Mississauga.
