Is my arm pain coming from my neck?
While most people are familiar with the idea that leg pain can often originate in the lower back, neck-related arm pain does not receive as much attention. However, a similar process can occur. Nerves can get caught as they leave the neck, resulting in symptoms which may include arm pain, weakness and pins and needles. This condition is relatively common and has a good recovery rate. Our Physiotherapists have undergone extensive training in the assessment and treatment of these symptoms. Call in and see one of our team of physiotherapists to alleviate your arm pain and prevent it becoming a recurring issue.
