Patient information

Did you know?

  • Low Back Pain affects almost 80% of the population over a lifespan.
  • Most patients recover but a small portion go on to have persistent pain.
  • Dysfunction in muscles of the head and neck may produce referred pain that closely resembles jaw pain.
  • The small joints and nerves of the upper neck can refer pain to the eye, jaw, ear, teeth, sinus, scalp or forehead.
  • Trigger points (tiny knot-like bands) within muscles can cause significant pain, and deactivating them with physiotherapy often reduces pain dramatically.
  • Clinically, in some forms of migraine, the neck may be a trigger for attacks. Targeted treatment of the neck can result in improvement in the condition.
  • Weakness of the stabilizing muscles of the neck has been shown to be associated with Cervicogenic headache. Retraining of these muscles is an effective evidence-based therapy.
  • Oral habits such as biting nails, chewing gum and grinding of teeth can have a significant impact on temporomandibular disorders.
  • Acupuncture and/or Dry needling is useful in activating the body’s natural pain inhibition systems and may facilitate an accelerated recovery.
