Cervical Chiropractic Care
Chronic neck pain often radiates to the upper back and shoulders and it can be a severely uncomfortable problem, making it hard to sleep at night, and stopping you from engaging in any physical activities for fear of making things worse.
Chiropractors specialise in assessing, diagnosing and managing conditions of the spine: they are highly trained in finding the cause of neck pain, which affects the cervical section of the vertebral column.
A neck chiropractic adjustment (also known as cervical manipulation) is a precise procedure applied to the joints of the cervical vertebrae by hand to improve the mobility of the spine, relieve the pain and restore range of motion.
Patients typically notice an improved ability to turn and tilt the head, and a reduction of pain, soreness, and stiffness.
Your chiropractor will develop a care plan that may combine more than one type of treatment, depending on your personal needs.
In addition to spinal manipulation, the treatment plan may include mobilisation, stretching and rehabilitative exercises.
