The neck is an extremely complex part of the body, comprising many nerves, muscles, veins, arteries, bones and ligaments. It also performs many important tasks which are crucial for human movement. As a result, the neck is susceptible to many issues, causing pain and dysfunction that impacts the life and general wellbeing of many Australians. In fact, it is estimated that between 10-15% of the Australian population suffer from neck pain at any given time.
