Have you ever woken up in the morning with no movement and extreme pain in your neck? Or turned quickly and experienced a sudden onset of extreme pain where the neck ‘locks’ up. Chances are then you’ve experienced Wry Neck. Our remedial massage clinic in Richmond can help.
Wry Neck (Facet) – one of the facet joints ‘locks’ up causing a significant amount of pain and lesser range of motion due to the neck muscles going into spasm to prevent further damage. The facet joint is a part of the spine which is designed to support your body weight and allow spinal movement. Every Facet joint has connective tissue that supports and acts as a cushioning so bones don’t hit each other. Other contributors you should be aware of is that you may have more sinister long term injuries as the underlying causes which include cervical bulged disc or arthritis. Remedial massage may be the solution.
