Is an injury to the soft tissues of the neck from a sudden jerking or “whipping” of the neck – this type of motion strains the muscles and ligaments of the neck beyond their normal range of movement.
Physiotherapy treatment can provide significant pain relief after this injury. Immediate pain relief from treatment is possible. Later on, relaxation techniques and regular exercise to prevent stress and tension in the neck muscles may be recommended. Stretching exercises for your neck and upper body, specific to your problem will be shown – this will prevent the neck stiffness from returning. Posture advice for work and leisure activities, including how to choose the correct pillow, will also be discussed during treatment.
