Upper Body Injuries

Modern day lifestyles could cause neck pain as a result of prolonged sitting, driving or lack of movement. Long periods of sitting can lead to a weakened posture and neck hyperextension, this could result in neck pain, stiffness and lack of movement. When assessing and treating someone with neck pain we also consider the effect their lifestyle may have on their posture and biomechanics.
