Osteopathy for Neck Pain

We find the root cause, treat and then create a plan to keep you pain free…

Common causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain is rarely a symptom of a more serious problem, but it does affect our quality of life. Let’s look at the main causes:

  • Poor posture: Prolonged sitting or standing in a hunched over position can lead to neck pain and discomfort.
  • Muscle strain: Lifting heavy objects, improper lifting technique, or excessive use of the muscles in the neck can cause muscle strain that leads to neck pain.
  • Whiplash: This type of neck injury is usually caused by a car accident and results in pain, stiffness, and difficulty moving the head.
  • Pinched nerve: Pressure on a nerve in the neck due to herniated discs or bone spurs can cause severe neck pain that radiates down the arms and legs.
  • Cervical degenerative disc disease: This condition is caused by the natural breakdown of intervertebral discs that leads to neck pain.
  • Osteoarthritis: The wear and tear of the joints in the neck over time can cause neck pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion.

Neck Pain explained

Neck pain is a common symptom that can range from mild discomfort to severe pain and stiffness. Common symptoms of neck pain include soreness, headaches, muscle tightness or spasms, and difficulties moving the head. Neck pain can be caused by many different factors such as poor posture, muscle strain, whiplash, pinched nerve, cervical degenerative disc disease, or osteoarthritis. Neck pain can limit one’s ability to carry out everyday activities and can be very debilitating.

How does an Osteopath treat Neck Pain?

Osteopathic treatment for neck pain includes soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilisation and/or massage, exercises to strengthen muscles, postural advice, and lifestyle modifications. The goal of an osteopath is to reduce pain, improve mobility and flexibility in the neck and reduce the risk of future injury. The treatment plan is tailored to each patient’s individual needs and goals.

How long does it typically take to recover from Neck Pain?

The length of time it takes to recover from neck pain varies from patient to patient, however most people start to see improvements after just a few treatments. It is important for patients to follow the recommended treatment plan and continue with any exercises or lifestyle modifications suggested by their osteopath in order to achieve the best possible outcome.

Treatment Summary


The osteopath will then use gentle manipulation, stretching and massage to help reduce pain and stiffness.

No. Of Visits

In some cases, a single visit may be enough to reduce pain and discomfort. In more severe or long-term conditions, a course of treatments may be necessary to achieve lasting relief.


We will also provide advice on lifestyle changes, such as exercise or ways to improve posture, that can help support recovery.

My experience with Forte has proved exceptional. My engagement has been with Gemma, sports massage expert. I went for a specific issue and now regularly go because she has (a) solved the problem and (b) worked hard on reoccurrence and general well being. If anyone needs a sports massage try her. You won't be disappointed.

Private Health Insurance

Osteopathy is often covered by private health insurance, but in some cases it is an additional element of the policy or you may need to get a referral from your GP or approval in advance. It is best to contact your insurer and ask about the details and process for your particular policy. We can invoice direct to the insurer if appropriate.
