Neck pain is the second most common musculoskeletal problem
Many Malaysians have experienced neck pain or stiffness at some points in our lives. Often, this may be caused by our daily activities and behaviours such as poor posture, working at a desk for too long without changing position or sleeping in a position that’s not ideal for our neck. Other times, neck pain may be due to an injury or indicate a more serious condition such as meningitis or even a heart attack.
It is easy to dismiss neck pain or a stiff neck as a common ailment that poses minor inconvenience and put off treatment. However, delaying treatment can lead to chronic pain that may progress into headaches, migraines and shoulder pain that radiates into other areas of the body.
Common conditions linked to neck pain
- Muscle Tension or Sprain
- Slipped Disc
Say goodbye to neck pain
For many Malaysians, the first solution we think of when we experience pain is to take it easy and get sufficient rest. While this may help to relieve neck pain and stiffness, prolonged inactivity often does more harm than good and can cause muscle deterioration which may lead to more health problems. This is why most medical professionals would recommend active physical therapy and exercise those with neck pain and stiffness instead.
Using a combination of heat, traction, manual treatment, movement and exercise, physiotherapy can help to ease pain and stiffness and prevent future injuries or pain attacks by strengthening the spine and neck muscles. Medication may also be prescribed to reduce inflammation or for pain relief.
Don’t let pain take control of your life. Seek treatment and lead an active, energetic and pain-free life today!

Top questions about Neck Pain Treatment
How do I relieve neck pain?
Here are some simple home remedies you can try to alleviate neck pain:
- Apply ice to the painful area during the first 48 to 72 hours
- Apply heat to the affected area after that, using warm showers, hot compresses or a heating pad
- Over-the-counter pain relievers
- Massage the affected area
- Keep moving your neck, but avoid sudden movements or jerking
- Stretch your neck muscles with slow exercises, moving it up and down, side to side and ear to ear
- Adjust your sleeping position
- Get a suitable mattress and pillow or a special neck pillow
What is the best treatment for neck and shoulder pain?
There is no one-size-fits-all solution for neck pain. There are multiple causes of neck pain and the most suitable treatment depends on the root cause of the pain.
For most people, neck and shoulder pain tends to go away after a few days. During this period, over-the-counter pain relievers and muscle relaxers, massage and/or hot and cold compresses may help to ease the discomfort.
However, pain that lasts for over 6 weeks, is unbearable even with home remedies, and/or is accompanied by other symptoms such as fever and nausea may indicate a more serious underlying condition and you should see a doctor as soon as possible. If the nerve roots or spinal cord is affected, surgery may be required.
How should I sleep with neck pain?
Sleeping on our stomach put stress on our spine and neck and can cause or worsen neck pain.
If you are experiencing neck pain or stiffness, adjust your sleeping position so that you’re sleeping on your back or side. It also helps to find a pillow that best suits you.
What causes neck pain?
Some of the common causes and conditions that cause neck pain include:
- Degenerative disc disease

- Neck injuries, such as whiplash, herniated disc, or a pinched nerve
- Infections, such as tuberculosis, meningitis and infection of the spine bones
- Polymyalgia rheumatica

- Poor posture
When should I go to the doctor for neck pain?
Most of the time, neck stiffness goes away after a day or two, and simple home remedies can help to relieve the pain.
However, you should seek medical help if you experience neck pain that lasts for over 6 weeks, is unbearable even with home remedies, and/or is accompanied by any of the following symptoms:
- Severe pain shooting down your arms
- Weakness, numbness or tingling in your arms or legs
- Problems controlling your bladder or bowels
- Loss of balance
- Sudden clumsiness
- A recent injury or accident
- Sudden and high fever

How many treatment sessions do I need for neck pain?
Every individual’s recovery and rehabilitation journey is different depending on your condition. The physiotherapist will be able to advise you of an appropriate treatment plan and frequency after the initial assessment.
Who are the Homage physiotherapists?
Homage Physiotherapists are an all-Malaysian team of individuals passionate and dedicated to caring for seniors and families in need.
Our physiotherapists specialized in diverse areas from orthopaedic (conditions of the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints) to geriatric (age-related or progressive conditions).
What do physiotherapists do?
Physiotherapists are allied health professionals who have an in-depth knowledge of how the body works and specialised hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat injury and disability. Trained to pinpoint the root cause of injuries and other ailments, a physiotherapist will first assess your holistic health and wellbeing, before determining the kind of movements and exercises you can and should do to aid in recovery, taking into consideration a multitude of factors including your individual needs, conditions and mobility.
A physiotherapist may use different approaches to treat and manage your condition, including movement and exercise, manual therapy and hydrotherapy.
How long does a physiotherapy visit last?
Every Homage Home Physiotherapy Visit is one-hour long (60-minutes).
What should I expect during my first physiotherapy session?
During your first visit, our physiotherapist will first assess your health and physical condition, understand the goals, develop and advise a personalised therapy treatment plan which can be completed in the home setting.
If time permits, the physiotherapist will also conduct these exercises with you during the first visit.
Should I prepare anything for my physiotherapy visit?
There is no need for any preparation.
If you have any doctor’s referral letter, previous physiotherapy/ medical reports or investigations (X-ray or MRI), we would recommend sharing these information with your physiotherapist for a more thorough understanding of your condition for therapy treatment.

What our customers say
The team has been sublime to work with albeit having to temporarily halt engaging them for care services due to the pandemic situation now in Malaysia. All teething issues in the initial phase of engagement were swiftly addressed and satisfactorily so. Special shoutout to Shirley from Homage who has been responding promptly to all my queries and requests (and went far and beyond my expectations with her actions in all counts).
My father had a fall recently and sustained a hip fracture. Living overseas and not being able to travel back home to assist with recovery was very worrying. A friend recommended Homage to help with his nursing care. They are prompt in replying to messages. The care provided was excellent and highly professional. We have been very pleased with the service. There are times when we had to change the appointment time and they obliged and looked into our needs.
Our experience has been very positive. So far, we have used their Care Pros perhaps 10 times (for checking in on mum) and she has been nothing short of kind and supportive. The coordinator Bel has also been a great help since day one. I find the price to be reasonable. Love the reporting feature on their app. You could see what has been done during the visit. It’s worth trying out.
My 85-year-old mother, who underwent post-ventral incisional hernia surgery in January 2019 had CPs from Homage, all professionally trained, from leading Malaysian hospitals. The CPs nursed my mother with diligence, and compassion; providing invaluable tips on elderly caregiving to family members. My gratitude and appreciation to Team Homage.
I had positive experiences with Homage so far. They are flexible, affordable, and professional. The coordinator from Homage has been very helpful and accommodating to my request since day one. Caregivers assigned to take care of my grandmother are punctual, professionally trained and attentive. Hope they will continue to serve well.
Homage has helped us a lot in assisting the recovery of our beloved father. They provide us with a comprehensive explanation regarding the physiotherapy program. The therapist they sent is highly qualified, courteous, passionate, and gave outstanding service. And above all, the charges are fair and affordable.
Thank you Homage for your assistance after my mom was discharged from the hospital due to dengue fever. Mom regained her confidence to take her first shower after discharge with the help of Homage's caregiver, something my domestic helper will not be able to do. Also to guide my domestic helper to handle her in a more hygienic way. My maid learned the proper method and able to give better care to mom now. Highly recommend it to people who looking for professional care services to manage family members who need help.
It's really hassle-free when u can have the COVID-19 swab test without leaving ur home. The response is really fast, the app is efficient. Thank you for your services.
I want to thank Homage for their excellent service especially Ms. Ginger for her brilliant communication and customer service and for making the necessary arrangements. She does a good follow-up before and after the physio, also accurate feed-back. We appreciate Ms. Shu for her excellent physio service which made my mother gain confidence that she can walk again. Ms. Shu is very patient, hard-working, and committed to seeing my mum will be completely restored and healed. Thank you.
