Mechanical pain can include pain and stiffness in the neck, upper back, shoulders and arms, or even pins and needles or ”tingling” into the hands. There may be associated headaches.
This is common after sleeping on a different bed or prolonged work in front of a computer. This may or may not interfere with activities of daily living and is most noticeable as a difficulty in turning the neck, eg, when looking round or reversing your car. Often the complaint can go on-and-off for years.
Traumatically-induced neck pain, most commonly arising secondary to road traffic accidents. It may involve a range of symptoms, most commonly neck and shoulder pain, upper back pain, upper arm pain and headaches.
Multiple tissues can be involved, including joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, discs and nerves. Treatment aims to manage the condition through symptomatic relief and long-term functional rehabilitation.
What type of treatment is used for neck pain?
Chiropractic care, like physiotherapy, provides medico-legal reporting on whiplash cases. If you have been to other practitioners and have failed to resolve your condition, please do not live with the pain. Let us help treat your injury and rehabilitate you to full recovery.
Please ask your insurance company for a Chiropractic referral.
You can also call us on the number below to refer yourself for treatment if you are self paying.
Physiotherapy can also be used to help treat neck pain as it uses similar treatment styles to chiropractic care. A variety of techniques will be administered to help your muscles and joints to work to their full potential, and help repair damage by speeding up the healing process to reduce pain and stiffness.
Here at The Lawrence Clinic, we do not just send you away with exercises. We believe the best recovery happens with a hands-on approach to physiotherapy, using manual manipulation techniques to guide the body back into alignment and reduce your pain.
