Neck Pain Treatment in Fulham | Fulham Osteopaths

Common Causes Of Neck Pain

Neck pain is becoming more common, with poor work/life balance as a leading cause. But 90% of our clients experience improvement after just a few treatments.  The main causes include:
pain
A traumatic event, like a car crash or skiing accident, perhaps leading to “whiplash”
pain
Lifting something awkwardly, or unexpectedly heavy
pain
Working on screens, with perhaps less than ideal setup
pain
Sports injuries, exercise routines or maybe not enough exercise
pain
Wear and tear as you get older, leading to inflammation and compression of your neck, with disc injuries and trapped nerves into the arm

Neck Pain Explained In Plain English

Neck pain is becoming an epidemic in the UK, even amongst children as they study long hours and peer at screens in awkward positions.

Neck pain ranges from an annoying pinch that comes and goes, to drastic strain and pain where any head movement is excruciating.

Sometimes with rest and time things improve, but more often the problem doesn’t get 100% better and feels stiff, painful or vulnerable. This means you are stuck, afraid of getting back to normal activities. This is when a professional opinion and treatment is really helpful.

Untreated, these pains can go from short easy to fix problems, to long term and harder to fix problems. Nobody likes taking pain killers or contemplating surgery. It’s important to choose a treatment which is safe, effective and proven thousands of times over all over the world. We recommend a course of treatment before contemplating long term medication or surgery, and evidence in research shows 90% of people are very satisfied with their improvement after only six treatments.

What Are The Major Causes Of Neck Pain?

Everybody knows about the common causes of neck pain such as whiplash and stress. Let’s dive in a little deeper looking at what goes wrong with your neck.

Ricked Neck

Also known as wry neck or locked neck, this is where small structures in the joints of your neck get trapped in the wrong place, and the neck is stuck and painful. This can even happen in children.

Joint strain

Your neck is a column of small joints and discs, a marvel of engineering. However, after a strain the joints, just like a sprained ankle, can get swollen inflamed and sore. Treatment and the correct advice can really speed recovery, so you can get back to work and play.

Wear and Tear

With age or a history of neck injury, the joints and muscles can end up a bit sorry for themselves. A lot of our work is getting the neck back to 100% by careful and steady treatment to safely reverse the effects of time.

Trapped Nerve

Our nerves that allow us to feel sensation and move our arms can get trapped as they exit the neck. When this happens you feel it in your shoulder or arm, with maybe shooting pains or pins and needles. Although it feels serious it is often easy to treat, by straightening out the bones of the neck and bringing down any swelling that may be pressing on the nerve.

How Does An Osteopath Treat Neck Pain?

An Osteopath will only use their hands and brain to skilfully and logically assess your symptoms. We train for many years to feel what is normal and what is in trouble, and Osteopathy is a fantastic method for getting your body back in tip-top shape again.

The neck is full of important and delicate structures, and it is important to choose a treatment from an expert you can trust to be both safe and effective. We train for many years to deeply understand neck pain and how it affects you. We will respectfully, carefully and skilfully propose a treatment plan to get you back to normal again.

This means you can be well in a truly natural way, by in the end, the miracle of your body healing itself.

And here's the best bit... By fixing the root cause of your problems, frequently people find that related issues that are connected also show drastic improvement, so you get help with all sorts of issues you didn’t even realise were connected. For example, did you know many digestive problems are caused by upper neck trouble?

Osteopath Reviews 

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

Melinda goes above and beyond and I feel very lucky to have met her. She has been treating my son for the last 10 months. After each session, we notice big improvements as Melinda helps him being more comfortable within his body in order to achieve his next developmental milestone. Melinda leverages her knowledge and experience to adapt to her patients needs, treating a baby isn’t easy but she always finds a way. Plus she always makes sure I understand how she is working with my son and share with me some things that we can do at home in between the sessions. Her kindness is just the cherry on the cake :)

I strongly recommend Fulham Osteopaths. Senior Osteopath Verena treated both myself and my newborn shortly after birth. We were both treated very gently and attentively and we both left feeling a lot better- my hip pain disappeared and babies tensions from birth were released. Thank you Verena! 🙏

We’ve been working with Verena to help with some long term covid issues and she has been wonderful. Very caring and thorough and puts us at complete ease with her thoughtful demeanour. She really listens and always responds with new suggestions to help improve the situation.

We chose to go to an osteopath after our little one suffered from reflux as well being an unstable lie during pregnancy, so he was very tense with an uncomfortable posture. After the first session with Katie along with myself and my husband doing the exercises given by Katie in between, we noticed a huge difference, we now have a very happy baby. We could not recommend Katie enough. She put us at ease and explained everything. We will definitely go back to Katie should we have any issues in the future.

Verena is amazing. The hip pain and pelvic floor dysfunction I had been working on with a physiotherapist for over a year was relieved almost immediately! I have hEDS and particularly recommend her for those with hypermobility also.

I went to visit Elyse, practically unable to walk. The pain in my knee was unbearable and couldn’t take weight and it felt like I’d done some irreparable damage. Within an hour - she had fixed me and given me some brilliant but short and easy exercises. I can’t recommend her enough

I visited Fulham Osteopaths for a treatment as entering my 3rd trimester of pregnancy has caused me some signifiant back stiffness. I was lucky enough to be treated by Melinda, the owner. I love the passion and nurturing approach she has and the focus on a holistic and natural side of treatment. It felt like she directed my body to find the balance and solve the issues. Instant improvement! I can highly recommend the place. The passion for improving people's lives and high quality customer service is visible from the moment you enter the place. Highly, highly recommended!
