What We Treat
Do you suffer from neck pain?
The team at Watsonia Physiotherapy offers a range treatments for neck pain, whether acute or chronic, at our clinic in Watsonia, just north-east of the Melbourne CBD. Neck pain is a very common condition, often caused by long hours driving or hunched over a computer all day long. Other common causes include whiplash, osteoporosis, scoliosis, neck sprain, slipped discs, pinched nerves and muscle cramps.
Neck pain can result in headaches and migraines, shoulder and arm pain, as well as dizziness and vertigo. A painful neck can significantly reduce the movement of your upper body and limit your lifestyle. It’s important for you to seek early treatment, so that you can prevent your condition becoming long term and limiting your day to day life.
Depending on the cause of your neck pain, you can end up with abnormalities to your muscles, ligaments and nerves, as well as in the bones and the joints in your spine. The most common causes of neck pain in our clients at Watsonia Physiotherapy are soft tissue abnormalities from injuries or prolonged wear and tear (age) that causes pain in the upper back, shoulders and arms.

Our team of highly qualified physiotherapists are very skilled at identifying the root cause of neck pain.

These include spinal manipulation or mobilisation, massage and other soft tissue techniques, stretches and ergonomic advice. The aim of our treatment plan is to reduce your pain, correct your posture and increase your muscle strength.
