neck pain

Neck pain isn't just physical discomfort; it can also weigh heavily on your mind and spirit, affecting your ability to enjoy life fully. Whether you're experiencing sharp, shooting pains or constant dull aches, the impact on your daily activities and well-being can be profound.

Understanding the Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain can stem from a variety of factors, each contributing to the discomfort you experience. Poor posture, whether from prolonged sitting at a desk or hunching over electronic devices, can strain the muscles and ligaments in your neck, leading to stiffness and pain. 

Additionally, sudden movements or trauma, such as whiplash from a car accident, can cause damage to the delicate structures of the cervical spine, resulting in acute or chronic neck pain. 

Other common causes include muscle tension due to stress, degenerative conditions like arthritis, and underlying medical issues such as herniated discs or nerve compression. 

Understanding the root cause of your neck pain is essential for developing an effective treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

types of neck pain 

Acute or Chronic

Approximately two-thirds of people will suffer from neck pain in their lifetime. Neck pain is the second most common reason people visit a chiropractor, after back pain. 

Often there is more than one issue at play and your chiropractor will be able to assess your condition effectively to advise you towards the most applicable treatment option available.

Postural pain or Stiffness

This type of pain is often chronic or recurrent, and may also be described as non-specific mechanical neck pain. People also describe it as 'muscular' pain. There are many things that can lead to this type of pain, such as posture, shoulder stability, ergonomics in the work place, repetitive tasks, sport and exercise. Management of this condition requires treatment to reduce the pain, as well as exercises, postural training and education to improve your musculoskeletal stability and prevent recurring episodes.

Facet Joint Sprain

Pain due to facet joints often comes on suddenly after a simple movement, and often has associated muscle spasm. Our treatment will aim to settle the initial inflammatory reaction, and get you back moving normally as soon as possible.


Whiplash associated disorder describes an injury to the muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints of the neck following an incident where the head moves into extremes of flexion and extension. This is often the result of a motor vehicle accident or fall. Rehabilitation is important to reduce the chance of ongoing pain following this type of injury

Osteoarthritis Associated Stiffness and Pain

Osteoarthritis, or degenerative change, involves normal age related change to our joints. However this process can be accelerated at the sites of previous injury, or in areas exposed to increased loads due to occupation or lifestyle factors. While change that has already occurred cannot be reversed, many people manage to remain pain free, and maintain a functional range of motion with simple exercises and occasional treatment.

Our Comprehensive Neck Pain Treatment Approach

Our team of experienced chiropractors is dedicated to providing effective neck pain treatment that targets the root cause of your discomfort. Through a combination of chiropractic adjustments, manual therapies, acupuncture or dry needling, and rehabilitative exercises, we aim to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall spinal health.

Using gentle yet precise techniques, our neck pain chiropractors work to realign the vertebrae in your cervical spine, relieving pressure on nerves and reducing muscle tension. This approach not only alleviates immediate pain but also promotes long-term healing and prevention of future issues.
