Neck Pain & Headache Treatment

Neck Pain and Headaches

At North Norfolk Osteopaths our experienced Osteopaths offer treatment for relief from neck pain and headaches for people in Dereham, Fakenham and surrounding communities. 

Neck pain is fairly common and can be very painful.

A painful or stiff neck can be caused by muscle strain from poor posture, prolonged static posture such as sitting infront of a computor or just sleeping in an awkward position.  Anxiety and stress can sometimes cause tension in neck muscles, which can lead to pain in the neck.  
Tension in neck muscles can also lead to headaches in the back of the head, over the forehead and above or behind the eyes .
Identifying the symptoms and getting a diagnosis that pinpoints the underlying cause of the pain is the first step in obtaining effective pain relief.  

While neck pain is common, the symptoms and severity can vary and may include:

  • Neck stiffness, with difficulty in turning to look over your shoulder
  • Ache or pain in the side of neck
  • Dull ache or tight feeling at the back of the head, sometimes pain in the forehead and around or behind the eyes 
  • Ache or pain going from the neck into the shoulder, arm or hand
  • Pins and needles or numbness into the shoulder, arm or hand

Osteopathic treatment can also help with migraine prevention through relieving muscle tension and any restrictions within the neck, promoting optimum health and functioning.

At North Norfolk Osteopaths our treatment also involves rehabilitation, self-care, exercise and postural advice to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
