Physiotherapy treatment will address faulty neck/back postures and joint mobility with mobilising of joints and posture correction exercises.
Tightness of neck musculature, in particular the scalenes, can be decreased through stretching and retraining of shoulder girdle muscles. The stabilising muscles of the neck and thoracic spine (such as longus colli, lower trapezius and serratus anterior) are also retrained and strengthened. Modifying household activities and exercise routines is important for positive long-term outcomes.
Initial manual physiotherapy can speed recovery and is best combined with a prescribed home exercise programme. Results from conservative treatment can be very successful with 70-90% resolution of symptoms.
