Diagnosis: Neck Pain
Almost everyone experiences neck pain or stiffness at some point in their life. The pain ranges in severity - from a mild annoyance to a pain so severe it can be unbearable. In some cases, the pain may be a symptom of an underlying abnormal curvature of the neck - for example, straight/military neck.
What causes neck pain?
Posture - when the head stays in an awkward position for too long (for example, while working, using a computer, watching TV or reading a book).
Trauma - from injuries such as 'whiplash' (from car accidents)
Other - disease, congenital malformation or progressive degeneration that can come with age
How can a chiropractor help?
Chiropractic treatment is a non-surgical means of relieving neck pain and restoring the range of motion of any neck vertabrae through regular spinal adjustment.
During an initial consultation, our chiropractors are able to determine if your condition is: a) minor and treatable, or b) more serious and requiring intensive, extended treatment or referral to a specialist. Alongside chiropractic adjustment and physical therapy sessions, we also help you supplement your recovery through specific prescribed physical exercises and nutritional advice.
