A pain in the neck!

eck pain is a significant burden within our society. It has been reported that the prevalence of neck pain is almost as high as that of low back pain, with some studies noting that 3 out of 4 people suffer from pain in the neck in a one-year period. The nature of school, office work and the long hours spent working at a computer put significant stress on the neck on a daily basis.

Neck pain can present alone or with arm pain or numbness, headaches or migraines. It can be due to postural issues (including improper sleep posture), repeated stress, or can arise following an injury. Whiplash injuries are a common cause of pain in the neck, the symptoms of which can arise months to years after an accident.

Doctors of chiropractic can help you care for an prevent pain by recommending exercises, postural changes and proper home and workplace ergonomics. Following a thorough examination, doctors of chiropractic are trained to properly diagnose the source of the pain and recommend the appropriate treatment.

Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) is a safe, non-invasive and effective approach to treating mechanical dysfunctions in the neck causing the discomfort. SMT is aimed at restoring proper spinal alignment with the ultimate goal of improving functionality, reducing nerve irritability and restoring range of motion in the neck.
