Our dedicated Physiotherapy team have a passion for helping our patients. With a deep understanding of the complexities of spinal health, they are highly skilled and experienced in treating spines and spine-related disorders. Our empathetic and professional team are here to listen and to provide best practice clinical care, tailored to your individual needs.

What is the cause?

Cervical instabilities are caused by either trauma, such as a motor vehicle accident, or from a congenital abnormality within the cervical ligaments and connective tissue.

Signs & Symptoms

Patients may describe one or more of the following:

  • Feelings of instability
  • Headache/Migraine
  • Neck ache
  • Sharp pain with movement
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Facial numbness or pain

What can we do about it?

The therapists at Elite Spinal Physiotherapy use the latest techniques to assess the cervical spine and determine if a cervical instability is the cause of the symptoms you are experiencing.

Once a cervical instability is confirmed, treatment will consist of a combination of manual therapy and targeted exercise. Due to the nature of a cervical instability a targeted exercise program is key to successfully treating this condition. Your therapist will teach you some very specific exercises that you can do at home or under supervision in our clinical pilates studio.
