What we can do to help you if you suffer from neck or upper back pain?

Neck and upper back pains in general can be brought on by numerous causes such as wrong posture or disc prolapse.

A leading example is a minor joint flexibility restriction caused by muscle or ligaments tensions, that is not relieved by rest or stretching, can become established and provoke acute pain if the area is triggered by something as silly as sleeping awkwardly.

Neck pain relief using osteopathy is something that is studied regularly. In 2010, a publication studied the efficacy of neck manipulations on short term relief.
