Neck Pain Treatment Huddersfield

Neck Pain – Feel Like It Weights a Tonne?

Neck pain is a common condition seen in the Pro Sport Physiotherapy Huddersfield Sports Injury Clinic on a daily basis. We often see Chronic Neck Pain cases that people have had for years. Treatments such as mobilisations and massage temporarily relieve the pain and tension but it quickly reappears days later!

Einstein said it best when he said “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity!”

Some signs that my neck is overworking for other muscles:

  • Neck feels like it weights a tonne especially at the end of the day.
  • Neck feels tight when getting stressed or anxious.
  • Breathing feels laboured and difficult at times.
  • Improves slightly with exercise but stiffens up at rest.
  • When doing sit ups, there is a lot of pressure felt in your neck.
  • Neck feels tight after doing weight training.
So Why Does It Keep Tightening Up Then?

Well that is the question we ask ourselves every single time when assessing a patient. WHY WHY WHY! It is only when we ask why that you can truly get rid of this chronic tension once and for all! Well Pro Sport Physiotherapy Huddersfield Sports Injury Clinic is going to let you in on a secret to solving chronic neck pain! Very often the Neck muscles are actually STRONG!!

How Can I Have Neck Pain But My Neck Muscles Are Strong?

Well very often there is another area of your body usually below the neck that is actually weak and causing the neck muscles to over work hence causing neck pain! Until this part of the body is addressed then it does not matter how much Massage, Mobilisations and Manipulations you have to your neck, those muscles will just keep tightening up again unfortunately and ‘pull the vertebrae’ out again and again and again!

So How Do I Know What I Need To Strengthen To Fix My Neck Pain?

Unfortunately until we actually assess you we cannot be a 100% sure which muscles need to be actually strengthened to eliminate your Neck Pain! Some people need core work, some need hip stability work, some might even need ankle stability work! We often will have two cases of left sided ‘trap or shoulder pain/tightness’ radiating into the shoulder blade or up into the neck. These two exact same case presentations will not clear with the same treatment plan because EVERYBODY IS DIFFERENT! We cannot give every patient the same treatment and expect the same result as every single person moves different to the next!

The Other Side Of The Coin

There will be some rear cases however where neck strengthening exercises may be indicated and will actually help completely eliminate neck pain. Again this will all be assessed in the Assessment in the Pro Sport Physiotherapy Huddersfield Sports Injury Clinic.

If you have Neck Pain that you have struggled to get rid of get in touch today and allow us find the real cause and eliminate the tension and aches once and for all!

Non Elite Sports Injuries Testimonials

  • “I have seen Dave O’Sullivan on several occasions over the last few years and I have always been 100% satisfied by the work he has done and the exercises and advice he has given. In fact, I am often amazed by the way he can work out what is causing what and how to put it right. Usually only 2 or 3 visits are needed, plus exercises done at home. I completed my first marathon 3 years ago, largely due to his expertise – I could hardly walk a week before race-day. I would definitely recommend Pro Sport Physiotherapy (and have done!)”

  • “Just thought i would drop you a line to let you know how im getting on with the stretches and the core work that you suggested. I have been doing these for around an hour to an hour and a half each day since i saw you, the difference i have found is massive. Its hard to explain how i feel whilst running and cycling now, it just feels like my body is more planted. The cyclo cross is finished now, i done my first fell race today on only six running sessions maybe not the best idea in the world however because of the excersises i have been doing my body felt stronger than it ever has. I have no technique at running downhill and would normally end up with a tight back doing that type of race where as this time no tightness. Thanks for all your help and advice”

  • “The first time I saw Dave with chronic back pain I was struggling to walk properly when I went in but I walked out more or less back to normal, and this is a normal result for Dave. The treatments are different to any I’ve experienced but my whole posture, long term injuries and problems continue to improve. Although some of the treatments are not pleasant the pain is well worth it for the results gained. If you need a physio go and see Dave and/or his colleagues.”

  • “5 years after breaking my leg and 3 surgeries later, Dave O’Sullivan was recommended to me after I received NHS physio where I was told I was a lost cause! Dave’s work is fantastic, I felt an improvement after the first visit and now feel better than ever. He explains everything, follows up the treatment with easy to follow videos and is a nice guy. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dave!”

    Lucy Flockton, Wakefield
  • “A 140-mile round trip to visit Dave is well worth it as he’s restored my confidence to overcome injury, using techniques you will probably not encounter elsewhere. Dave’s manner is excellent, taking time to explain things simply and being available to clarify concerns. Many exercises prescribed are provided by video link with is far superior to the dodgy photocopied exercise sheets traditionally supplied as they ensure you can review and perform your rehab using good technique. In my opinion the ProSport experience is years ahead of the game as it adopts the advances being made in its field whereas regular Yellow Pages clincs stick to dated methods. A big plus is that Dave is also interested in getting you right.”

  • “I’d been struggling for the best part of a year with what I (and my old physio) thought was a damaged hamstring. I’d heard about Pro Sport and read about their Soft Tissue Release Techniques and thought I’d nothing to lose by trying a new approach. Thank goodness I did….. Darragh Sheehy correctly identified I actually had a partially trapped Sciatic nerve and set about “releasing” it…. That’s another way of saying pain…..but it really is “no pain, no gain”. After one session I left feeling considerably better. I ran at the weekend with a huge grin on my face……I was thinking “I’m back!” A few sessions later and following Darragh’s exercise regime I’d improved again and within a few months had a new 5k PB.”

  • “Pro Sport Physiotherapy are amazing! I was having trouble with my hip whilst running over a certain distance. Shane worked out within 15 minutes that a tiny set of muscles near scar tissue was preventing my glute and core from firing. I worked on my exercises for a week and returned to my next appointment to find I was cured. A couple of sessions followed to ease my aching muscles now they were working and I am now fully fit to run my first ever half marathon this autumn. I have recommended the company to anyone who will listen. They are professional, knowledgable, fast workers and friendly. 5 star service with a smile :)”
