If you are suffering with neck pain, whether it’s from a recent injury or you’ve had a bad neck for many years, (or have been told to ‘live with it’), we will likely be able to help you. Chiropractic can help almost all people with neck pain, both mild and severe, and is a very popular reason for visiting us. It is safe, comfortable and effective.
You might be familiar with some of these symptoms – dull aches, sharp pains, electric shocks, stiffness, loss of movement, toothaches – all of which can vary in how bad they are and where you feel them! It is quite common for neck problems to be felt not just in the neck, but also travelling into your head (see our section on headaches). Neck pain can also travel into your shoulder, chest and arm/hand due to trapped nerves in the neck.
Usually you will find that some things make you worse – often just trying to turn your head, driving, using a telephone, lying down. Some things may give you temporary relief – gently moving your head, changing positions. We understand how difficult it is when these problems stop you living and enjoying a normal life.
There are many types of neck pain that we can help you with. The most common cause is that one or more of the bones in your spine can become stuck and out of position. This interferes with the nerves that live in your spine and come out of it and into almost every part of your body. Sometimes this can be felt as trapped nerves. Because many of the muscles in your neck and shoulders fasten to these bones, you may also experience muscle spasm.
Other problems may also add to your neck pain, including whiplash, spondylosis, disc injuries, nerve root problems, spondylolisthesis, facet joint problems, and stenosis. These too can usually be helped with Chiropractic care.
We offer Chiropractic care which 1) helps relieve your problem, 2) corrects the underlying cause, and 3) prevents it returning so that you as a whole stay well and healthy instead.
