Modern lifestyles often include hours of driving and hunching over workstations, which can play mayhem with our spines. So it is not surprising that neck pain is the second most common condition that chiropractors treat. Whilst neck pain is less common than low back pain, millions of people experience neck pain, related arm pain and/or headaches at some stage in their lives and therefore seek chiropractic care.
Neck pain results from abnormalities or dysfunction of the joints in the spine, soft tissues – muscles, ligaments, and nerves.
In the majority of cases treatment involves getting the spinal joints functioning properly again. By normalising the function in specific joints, abnormalities in soft tissues connecting to these areas can also be eased. Your chiropractor may also give some exercises for you to be doing at home to keep your body working at its best.
Chiropractic is a wellness/ lifestyle treatment which allows the body to heal at its best.
