Back & Neck Pain
Yoga Position 6




What causes back and neck pain?

The causes of back and neck pain can vary:

  • Heavy lifting, injuries and accidents

  • Static positions – whilst driving or working at a computer

  • Muscle strains

  • Nerve compression

  • Conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis

  • Long drives on Cars and Bikes

  • Standing most of the day working

Sometimes injury results from a direct trauma that may occur when lifting a heavy object, after a fall or from direct impact, such as a road traffic accident. Other times it may result without obvious cause or from a fairly innocuous movement.

Treating your back or neck pain

Back pain can either be described as acute with only a few weeks duration or persistent with repeated episodes.

In either case, it would be appropriate to be assessed by one of our back and neck physiotherapists to help advise you on the best way to manage your symptoms.

The following are some of the treatment methods that may be used:

  • Manual therapy

  • Exercises 

  • Dry Needling / IMS

  • Electrotherapy

  • Ergonomic assessment

  • Heat

  • Breathing and relaxation techniques

A therapist may use a wide variety of techniques to treat you and any one of their patients, but usually in the beginning it is important to advise you on the best ways to move, pace your daily activity and improve your posture.

What shouldn’t you do with back or neck pain?‘The aim is to help relieve pain and restore normal movement’


Prolonged bed rest or avoiding activity tends to worsen symptoms. However appropriate guidance on how to become active again will help considerably. Learning how to manage your own back pain will be the quickest way to recovery! It is important to develop a positive outlook as a  way to help you cope with your symptoms.

Remember that the level of pain does not equate to harm!
