Neck anatomy

The structure of the neck is a complex. The neck also known as the Cervical Spine includes seven bones called vertebrae stacked on top of each other like lego blocks and connected by two joints above and below.  Each joint has is own ligaments, capsule and muscles that connect onto it providing support and movement. Within each vertebra runs the spinal cord in what is called a spinal canal.  The nerves then exit in between each vertebra to supply signals from the brain to control different parts of our body.

Common neck injuries

Whiplash

The number one source of whiplash is car accidents and contact sports. Generally any injury involving trauma which causes sudden acceleration and deceleration force to the neck can cause a whiplash.  This can cause excessive movement of the neck and result  in an injury to the tendon, muscles, joints, nerves and other soft tissues.

Whiplash symptoms depending on the severity of the injury can include pain, stiffness, headaches, weakness and nerve related symptoms.

Research evidence for the treatment of whiplash supports advice to remain active and depending on the degree of the injury, a graded exercise exercise program with activity modifications and some hands on therapy.

Wry neck

Wry neck is a condition where your neck gets “stuck” in a particular position. Due to pain, stiffness and tightness in the neck muscles, the neck range of movement becomes extremely limited.

Wry neck can result from a sudden movement but also occurs after a long period of resting in an awkward neck position most commonly after a deep sleep or working on a laptop in an odd position .

Treatment for a wry neck can depend on the cause of the injury.  Generally, treatment involves using techniques to reduce muscle tightness and joint stiffness. Later stages of treatment focus on relaxing muscle tightness and weakness.

Neck tension related pain and headaches

Neck pain can arise as a result of tension in the muscles surrounding the neck. This can be associated with factors such as stress, weak muscles and fatigue from prolonged sustained postures.

There is good evidence from the University of Queensland that a graded exercise program that focuses on correcting the tension by strengthening the muscles in the neck and shoulder can significantly reduce neck pain long term.
