Neck and shoulder pain or stiffness – that comes and goes
Headaches – often starting at the back of the neck
Pain around the shoulder blade

Cervical neck pain and stiffness due to cervical spondylosis often affects the middle aged and elderly population. Physiotherapy has been shown by research1 to reduce the pain and disability associated with spondylosis.
