Why your joints are stiff and painful on a morning?

Almost every day I get asked the same questions: ‘Why do I feel so stiff and tight on a morning?’, ‘Why is my back so stiff when I wake up?’, ‘Why do I need a hot shower to loosen me off first thing?’ These are common questions I find myself answering time and time again on a daily basis at Bodywise Physio Leeds. There are several different causes for joints feeling stiff on a morning. I am only going to discuss one possible cause. This is the most common cause I see in the clinic.

Tiger Woods’ neck injury….could it be related to whiplash?

I assessed and treated a 35year old male patient last week for acute left sided neck pain. On questioning him on what he thought had triggered his pain, he told me he had suffered a whiplash injury following a car accident 5 months ago. His pain took about 6 weeks to fully settle down. He decided to take a break from golf for 4-5 months with the hope of not flaring up his neck pain. However, the following day after returning to golf he woke up with severe left sided neck pain and could barely rotate or extend his neck, hence the physio appointment.

Poor Posture…A pain in the neck!

A large percentage of my weekly caseload of patients within the clinic suffer pain related to poor posture.

Many of these patients are office workers or have sedentary jobs.
Sitting at a desk or in the car for a large part of the day is not good for our body and can be the cause of many different musculoskeletal problems.

The most common problems that occur as a result of prolonged periods of sitting are: Lower Back Pain (may refer pain down the leg, Sciatica), Neck Pain (may refer pain to the shoulder or down the arm), Shoulder Pain and Headaches
