Causes of Neck and Shoulder Pain

There are many causes of neck and shoulder pain, including poor posture, repetitive motions, and injury. Poor posture, such as slouching or hunching over, can put strain on the muscles and joints of the neck and shoulders. Repetitive motions, such as typing or playing an instrument, can also lead to pain. Injuries, such as a sprained neck or rotator cuff tear, can also cause pain in the neck and shoulders.

How Physiotherapy Can Help?

A physiotherapist can help diagnose the cause of your neck and shoulder pain and develop a treatment plan to alleviate pain and improve function. Treatment may include exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles of the neck and shoulders, manual therapy to relieve muscle tension and improve range of motion, and education on proper posture and body mechanics.
