Many people develop pain, pins and needles or numbness down the arm or in their hands or fingers. These symptoms are fairly common in people who work on computers.

These symptoms can be very worrying, as nerve related symptoms are often severe. Usually, the symptoms are caused by a nerve pinching in your neck which then refers the pain, numbness or pins and needles down your arm. Often patients with “Carpal Tunnel” like symptoms actually have a problem in their neck. Physiotherapy treatment of joints, muscles and ligaments as well as mobilising the nerve in the arm is very successful. We also apply traction if it is required. The treatment is always more effective and results are quicker if you seek treatment in the early stages of pain.
