Neck pain is extremely common and can affect your life in so many ways. Whether it be sharp neck pain, dull muscular aches, headache, or an inability to fully move your head, a sore neck can be very frustrating.

There are many causes of neck pain. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your neck pain so that appropriate treatment can be established. We find that neck joints (cervical spine) become stiff. This in turn usually causes protective muscle spasm of some neck and shoulder muscles and weakness of others. The longer this abnormal scenario exists, the more complex our assessment findings are. Your neck posture changes, which strains adjacent joints and muscles, and the condition cyclically deteriorates. Ultimately you end up with a sore neck.

The interesting thing about necks is that one stiff neck joint or one weak or tight muscle can have a dramatic effect if not fixed quickly. We often see patients who have unsuccessfully tried various neck treatment techniques. What we normally find it that it is a combination of your neck joints, muscle stretching, massage, acupuncture/dry needling, neural tissue, strength exercise and postural techniques that are required to optimize your results. Our therapists take courses and read current research about treating neck pain, and our clinic offers Physiotherapy, Chiropractic and Massage Therapy treatment. If you would like to book an assessment, we allow for 1 hour visits and 30-45 minute treatments to get you better ... faster.
