Nearly everyone will experience some type of upper back or neck pain in their lifetime. This can be caused by traumatic incidents but most often they develop over time due to unhealthy repetitive positions. This is in no small part due to the fact that so much of our lives now involve sitting down staring at screens – there’s a reason physios talk so much about ergonomics!
Upper back and neck pain can involve problems with your thoracic spine (mid/upper back), ribs, cervical (neck) spine and surrounding musculature and ligaments. Physiotherapists also treat headache disorders caused by neck dysfunction with specialty in cervicogenic headaches (headaches coming from the neck).
At Fixio Physiotherapy Dee Why Sports and Pain Solutions, we assess and treat all forms of neck, rib, and low back pain. We are fortunate enough to have one of the best neck pain experts in Sydney, Titled Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, Damien Glover assessing and managing people on the Northern Beaches.
