Neck pain is a symptom that has many causes.

It may arise from a stiff neck or even a whiplash injury. Neck pain that originates in the joints of the neck can often worsen when there is swelling which affects the surrounding nerves.

Whiplash is a hyper-extension and flexion injury to the neck caused by an acceleration deceleration force and is commonly associated with head to rear car accidents. A whiplash injury can also be sustained in many other ways such as from sports or a fall. If you are suffering from a whiplash injury, you will often have pain and symptoms in your neck, shoulders and upper back

At Trigonal, we find that having your neck and upper back assessed immediately after an injury such as whiplash helps in the early identification and management of the injury sustained before the symptoms escalate.
