If your problem has been there more than 2 weeks and isn’t going away then don’t wait any longer to get help. Make the decision – ‘I need help and the advice of an expert in managing my pain.’ Rest and painkillers won’t fix your problem. The longer you wait, the harder it is to resolve.
Choose a physio that will give you Quality ‘Hands On’ treatment to relieve your pain, soothe aching muscles and loosen stiff joints. We love this part of the job – it makes a difference FAST.

Common Neck & Shoulder Problems
I feel it in my shoulder but it’s coming from my neck! The body is a funny thing – where you feel your pain often isn’t the source of the problem. Our experts diagnose WHERE the source of the problem is and provide effective treatment to give long lasting results. Here are a few common scenarios we see:
Mechanical Neck pain
Overworked painful muscles and stiff joints in the neck and upper back cause people to say, “My head feels a tonne weight, I can’t sleep because it’s so sore, I can’t lift my head off the pillow, sitting at work my neck aches, I can’t turn my head without pain. I feel pain in my neck causing headache or spreading down my arm.” People often go weeks, months sometimes YEARS with this dragging pain – PLEASE DON’T! If it’s not going away after a week or two then you need help. This is THE most common type of neck pain we see. It’s easily relieved but the key is then keeping the pain away – we can help you with both! Start now with some great tips in our Relieve Neck Pain Guide! Book online to get your appointment now!
Neural neck and arm pain
Pins and needles down the arm, numbness, pain in the neck, shoulder or arm can all be symptoms of an irritated nerve in your neck. The irritated nerve may be related to injury of the disc BUT the more common reason is much less serious. Both conditions can be effectively managed with physio. We have a great section on “What To do With a Trapped Nerve in the Neck” in our Relieve Neck and Shoulder Pain Guide AND there are a few great tips to help you sleep better. This is not a problem to “wait and see if it gets better” this needs sorted fast. Speak to a physio or Call the Clinic to Book.
Repetitive strain of your day to day life can start to result in persistent pain. Pain is often felt through the shoulder or down the front of the shoulder & arm. This pain can stop you lifting overhead, putting on coats, difficulty with the simple things in life – putting on a bra, brushing your hair and it’s often sore to sleep on. This type of issue occurs when a shoulder tendon simply isn’t coping with the strain put on it – then it gets inflamed and painful. The solution is simple – see our ‘Myth Busting for Sore Shoulders’ section in our Relieve Neck and shoulder Pain Guide to find out how to resolve pain from shoulder tendinopathy. Once our clients complete the rehab they simply don’t come back with this problem again! Job done!
Chronic shoulder pain
Shoulder pain for years? Well that’s just miserable! Just because it’s chronic doesn’t mean there’s something badly damaged! This often starts as a straight forward problem that isn’t dealt with which then starts to get sorer – in fact the longer you have pain the more sensitive your painful areas tend to get. Your increasing pain OFTEN DOES NOT mean there is more damage. The main cause of increasing pain in the shoulder or neck is more due to how our neural system is wired. The longer you have pain the more protective and sensitive your nervous system gets and sends more pain signal to let you know! Quite often the root cause of the issue is a relatively simple problem that has been allowed to go on for WAY to long. The longer it goes the sorer it gets. If you’re really not sure where to turn then why not Speak To a Physio or request a Free Physio Taster and ask our experts about your problem.

Hear how some of our clients have improved their lives by taking control of Neck & Shoulder Pain…
As a dentist, I have suffered from a sore back, neck and shoulder for years. After seeing Hazel I now feel I know what to do to stop my pain from returning. I can now do Pilates which is something I couldn’t have imagined being able to do before my treatment at Causeway Physio & Pilates...
I had neck and shoulder pain that was spreading down to my elbow. Simple things such a putting on a shirt were difficulty and painful. My GP wanted me to keep taking painkillers but I wanted the problem solved.
I felt relief right from my first appointment. My course of physio fully resolved my neck and shoulder pain. That was back in December 2017 and I've been painfree since!
