Normal neck function is essential for protection of the spinal nerves and effective use of the senses.
Neck pain and loss of function are often caused by altered muscle control and stiffness in the neck joints.
Research and our clinical experience indicates that combining manual therapy and exercise therapy is an effective treatment for neck pain. This requires expert knowledge and skill to identify the best techniques and most appropriate exercises for each individual presentation.
