Osteopathic Treatment for Neck Pain
This problem generally stems from holding a position that the neck is not used to for too long. Similar to head aches it stems from neck and shoulder muscles becoming too tight. A classic presentation would be of someone who is studying, reading or on the computer for longer than normal. It may happen acutely or take many weeks to develop. It can produce unsettling symptoms into the arms or hands such as tingling, pins and needles, numbness or pain and weakness by compressing or trapping nerves in the neck which supply the arm and hand. Usually osteopathic treatment and advice on posture or activity adjustment is more than sufficient to put you back on your feet.
