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.
Analgesics for pain relief, NSAIDS (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) to reduce pain due to muscle spasms and in some conditions antidepressants are also prescribed reduce pain & related symptoms in the neck.
2. Surgical Treatment:-
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 –
Cervical traction devices treat different types of cases of neck pain including conditions like cervical spondylosis. 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.
Specific strengthening exercises including neck isometrics and dynamic strength training for neck & shoulder muscles will help to maintain improved posture which in turn eliminates recurrent flare ups of neck pain.

Had a very bad experience. I called before going at the clinic and asked them if I could come now. She said that I could and didn't inform me about the timings. Apparently I was only called for consultation and had to come back for session in the evening. What a waste of time and money. I was charged 300rs for consultation where as I didn't need one. I just had a slight neck sprain. Only needed few exercises to release the pain. Very bad management and coordination. Never going back.
Great they have the audacity to speak to their patients this way. Clearly it shows how they are. I left my feedback because you guys have bad management. You can keep defending it by calling me names. But a bad review will stay a bad review. I will make sure to spread the word.
PS WHILE LEAVING I DID MENTION I AM NEVER COMING BACK TO THIS CLINIC AGAIN. FORGET ABOUT EVENING.
You guys need to learn how to speak to the people.
You guys are hilarious. Don't try and threaten me with a legal action. I rest my case with the explanation I have given above. I am not going to repeat it again and again that I didn't know about your closing time as it was not informed to me. Try and learn how to take a constructive criticism instead of arguing constantly.
I never took any appointment for today evening so stop lying. I told the doctor then and there that I am never coming again. And stop talking like you are doing some social services. I very well paid you for the 10 minutes I spoke to your doctor.
I had a bad experience and my family, relatives and friends will never revisit this clinic. Period.
End of the story.

Dr Vigil's clinic is the best physiotherapy clinic I have visited so far for my mom's knee pain treatment. I could see positive results within 15 days. Our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Jasmine for her efforts and hard work. Highly recommended. Great gesture and hospitality.
A big thankyou to Dr Vigil clinic team! Keep rocking!😁👍
