Neck pain is the second most common musculoskeletal problem

Many of us have experienced neck pain or stiffness at some points in our lives. Often, this may be caused by our daily activities and behaviours such as poor posture, working at a desk for too long without changing position or sleeping in a position that’s not ideal for our neck. Other times, neck pain may be due to an injury or indicate a more serious condition such as meningitis or even a heart attack.

It is easy to dismiss neck pain or a stiff neck as a common ailment that poses minor inconvenience and put off treatment. However, delaying treatment can lead to chronic pain that may progress into headaches, migraines and shoulder pain that radiates into other areas of the body.

Common conditions linked to neck pain

Injury

Muscle Tension or Sprain

Meningitis

Arthritis

Osteoporosis

Slipped Disc

Say goodbye to neck pain

For many of us, the first solution we think of when we experience pain is to take it easy and get sufficient rest. While this may help to relieve neck pain and stiffness, prolonged inactivity often do more harm than good and can cause muscle deterioration which may lead to more health problems. This is why most medical professionals would recommend active physical therapy and exercise those with neck pain and stiffness instead.

Using a combination of heat, traction, manual treatment, movement and exercise, physiotherapy can help to ease pain and stiffness and prevent future injuries or pain attacks by strengthening the spine and neck muscles. Medication may also be prescribed to reduce inflammation or for pain relief.

Don’t let pain take control of your life. Seek treatment and lead an active, energetic and pain-free life today!

Meet Our Physiotherapists

Hello, I’m Alvin, a physiotherapist since 1993.

My passion is in the areas of geriatric and stroke rehabilitation. The joy of my profession comes from helping seniors to walk again.

I have worked also with national sportsmen and women during my various stints with hospitals and the Singapore Sports Council. Presently, I am a full-time home physiotherapist helping those who find it hard to get to rehab clinics. Being there to modify their home environment can help the seniors to adhere to the prescribed exercises. I also talk to them in a familiar language or dialects such as Hokkien and Teochew so that they feel comfortable during the therapy visits.

I believe in empowering patients who are undergoing this process of rehabilitating and encourage caregivers to be a part of this process so as to help their loved ones recover faster.

Top questions about neck pain treatment

Here are our responses to common queries families have about Homage neck pain treatment service.

How do I relieve neck pain?

Here are some simple home remedies you can try to alleviate neck pain:

  • Apply ice to the painful area during the first 48 to 72 hours
  • Apply heat to the affected area after that, using warm showers, hot compresses or a heating pad
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers
  • Massage the affected area
  • Keep moving your neck, but avoid sudden movements or jerking
  • Stretch your neck muscles with slow exercises, moving it up and down, side to side and ear to ear
  • Adjust your sleeping position
  • Get a suitable mattress and pillow or a special neck pillow

If these home remedies do not work, do consult a medical professional. Reach out to our Care Advisors at 6100 0055 or [email protected] and learn more about how our doctors and physiotherapists can help with neck pain.

What is the best treatment for neck and shoulder pain?

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for neck pain. There are multiple causes of neck pain and the most suitable treatment depends on the root cause of the pain.

For most people, neck and shoulder pain tends to go away after a few days. During this period, over-the-counter pain relievers and muscle relaxers, massage and/or hot and cold compresses may help to ease the discomfort.

However, pain that lasts for over 6 weeks, is unbearable even with home remedies, and/or is accompanied by other symptoms such as fever and nausea may indicate a more serious underlying condition and you should see a doctor as soon as possible. If the nerve roots or spinal cord is affected, surgery may be required.

How should I sleep with neck pain?

Sleeping on our stomach put stress on our spine and neck and can cause or worsen neck pain.

If you are experiencing neck pain or stiffness, adjust your sleeping position so that you’re sleeping on your back or side. It also helps to find a pillow that best suits you.
