Kent Neck Pain Centre

Kent Neck Pain Centre is a physiotherapy clinic specialising in the treatment of neck pain, whiplash injury, headache and trapped nerves. Kent Neck Pain Centre was set up by Chris Worsfold in 2010. Patients attend from all over the UK.

Kent Neck Pain Centre specialises in the treatment of the following:

  • Postural neck pain, for example, from computer use or stress related
  • Longstanding and recurring neck pain
  • Whiplash injury from car accidents or sport
  • Trapped nerves in the neck
  • Headaches including migraine

The clinical assessment might include:

  • An in depth history of your problem
  • Measurement of your neck stiffness and neck strength
  • Measurement of tenderness around your neck
  • Assessment of the mobility and sensitivity of your nerves
  • Special tests of movement control of your neck
  • Assessment of your balance (some people with neck problems also suffer poor balance)

Chris will devise a treatment plan tailored to your specific problem. Treatment consists of a tailor made exercise program consisting of:

  • Exercises to effectively strengthen weak muscles around the neck
  • Exercises to reduce the sensitivity of the neck area.
  • Exercises to improve balance and reaction times of the neck muscles.

Treatment may also include ‘hands on’ soft tissue and spinal joint techniques to reduce pain and make exercising easier and more comfortable. The emphasis remains on what you can do to help yourself. Your exercises will be sent to you by email with full colour pictures and video to ensure you are performing them correctly.
