Neck Pain: You’re not alone

Are you experiencing neck pain conditions? Neck pain is common and affects 1 in 3 people each year. It is not unusual that numerous people experience similar neck pains. Sleeping in an awkward position or working on a computer for a prolonged period would result in a stiff or sore neck and may lead to further neck pain and complications.

With the ever-increasing usage and dependency on mobile devices, people tend to suffer from a unique condition called “Text Neck”, resulting in constant neck pain and discomfort. Neck pain symptoms are usually harmless and resolve by itself with proper care, however, there is a chance that it may escalate into something more serious if the behaviour causing the neck pain is not corrected. If you are experiencing neck pain, it is important to seek treatment or further advice from a certified doctor or physiotherapist before the issue deteriorates.

Physiotherapy is the treatment of injury, disease, and disorders through physical methods such as exercises, massage, and other treatments. Physiotherapy does not include any medication or surgery to help alleviate patient issues but can refer you to a specialist if necessary.

A physiotherapist can alleviate these pains through a plethora of treatment techniques to restore, maintain, and help prevent impediments towards the patient’s mobility, function, and well-being.

Found out about Core Concepts last year through social media and made an appointment as i was experiencing some neck and shoulder discomfort after a traffic accident. My therapist was evidently experienced and was able to pinpoint the cause of my aches. The one thing i loved about my experience at Core Concepts is that they are not like typical physiotherapists who simply prescribe take home exercises, instead my therapist was extremely hands on, helping me to massage my neck at the right spots to relief the stiffness - best massage ever! Would highly recommend Core Concepts!!

I've been to a few Core Concepts outlets and am pleased with my experiences so far! I went there thinking that I have a normal neck ache but they were quick to point out that it's due to my scoliosis. Each session usually leaves me feeling a lot relieved from the pain and I really appreciate the exercises which the team has taught me to strengthen the weaker back muscles. Thank you so much team!

I go to Novena and Cheryl is my therapist. She was upfront from the get go about my neck condition. I liked her honesty and said we'll give it a try. I was better after 4 weekly sessions and continued to go to her every 2 weeks. With her help I am in a better condition, had to put in effort on the exercises she taught me as well.
