Neck pain has been one of the most common disabilities known to be suffered by people in everyday life. Almost in all the age groups (mostly in middle & old age) people complain about neck pain and their inability in carrying out their daily activities due to it. The pain is generally in the back of the neck and along the muscles in the sides between the neck and shoulders.
In many cases, neck pain is caused due to poor posture and faulty ergonomics in the people working for long hours and computer on a desk. These positions lead to overworking of muscles in the neck making them ache due to fatigue.
Degenerative changes in the joint and discs between the vertebrae causes pain and restrictions in the range of motion and is associated with other physical impairment.
Common Degenerative Disorders Are:
A sudden catch like sensation in the neck when the soft tissues (muscles & ligaments) in the neck extend beyond their typical range of motion due to trauma (Whiplash Injury) is also a common condition causing neck pain which can be mild in the beginning but may lead to a long term discomfort.
Other symptoms associated with neck pain can be headache, dizziness, stiffness in the neck, weakness in arms, fatigue.
Neck pain is a symptom of many conditions, as treatment of neck pain depends on what condition is been diagnosed and how are the other symptoms associated with it.

Common surgical options for treating neck conditions:
It is one of the most common and highly effective treatments to reduce pain and associated symptoms by using various modalities and exercise program &/or strengthening and stretching the neck. Main goals of physiotherapy for neck pain includes –

It helps to relax the muscles, which can significantly relieve pain and stiffness while increasing flexibility. It is also used to treat herniated discs and pinched nerves. It can relieve pain from joints, sprain and spasms. This improves mobility, range of motion and alignment of the spine.
Many superficial and deep heating modalities such as heat pads, shock wave diathermy, ultrasound, paraffin baths, whirpool baths etc. Are used to relieve and relax the muscles.
Electrical Stimulating currents such as TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical nerve Stimulation) and Interferential current are used for modulation of pain through stimulation of cutaneous sensory nerves and following pain gate mechanism.
One of common manual techniques used in to reduce spasm is to release trigger point in the neck reducing pain commonly known as myofascial release (MFR). It also helps in correcting alignment of the neck and improving the function.
Proper stretching and strengthening program is highly effective to relieve pain and increase efficiency of the neck and the muscles to carry out various daily activities without any distress. Stretching expands and preserves the range of motion & elasticity in affected cervical joints and relives stiffness that accompanies pain.

Went here for consultation regarding back pain. So after a random check, the doctor said that this is nothing and then went on to explain the two monthly package which she can offer me, provided if I pay for a months advance I can avail some good discount, when I told her that I don't reside in Mumbai, she offered me a 15 days package to which I said that I am here for a week only, on that she further suggested me to shrink a 15 days pack in just 7 by two sessions a day.
She then offered me some vitamins and upon asking her if she could prescribe the same, she said she will give it on her own.
I failed to understand that without doing any sort of test how did she came to the two monthly conclusion and my body's deficiency over some vitamin.
