Causes

Acute neck injuries can result from a car accident, fall or sports injury.

Factors such as poor sitting posture, poor sleeping position, stress and incorrect muscle activation are also common causes of neck pain resulting in muscle tightness, joint stiffness and nerve irritation. If left untreated, these symptoms can often worsen.

Your physiotherapist at Body Rhythm Physiotherapy will carry out a thorough assessment to establish an accurate diagnosis for the cause of your neck pain or headaches.
