Chiropractic & Neck Pain

Do you have:

  • Muscle tension in the neck and base of the skull
  • Stiffness with turning head
  • Posture shows head tilt
  • Pain is relieved temporarily with stretch, massage or heat
  • Potential headaches or arm pain

Neck pain can be a ‘pain in the neck!’ Necks are designed to be mobile, so if yours isn’t chances are that it’s out of balance and it’s unlikely to get better on its own. While most people reach for over-the-counter pain medications to get rid of the pain, at Chiropractic Balance we ask: ‘What is the cause of your neck pain?’

Frequently the cause of neck pain is an imbalance of the spine and nerves (subluxation) and it’s not going to get better on its own(1). Medication may reduce the pain but it often doesn’t solve the underlying problem.

The good news is help is at hand: Spinal imbalance is what our Chiropractors’ specialise in identifying and correcting. Several studies have shown that Chiropractic care can help improve both acute and chronic neck pain disorders(2)(3).

We want to get you out of pain and keep you like that so you can do the things you enjoy.

If you have neck pain, at your first visit we will review your history and do a thorough examination to see if imbalance is causing your neck pain. If it is, we will begin working on correcting it. But we don’t stop there, we examine the rest of your spine and body to see if its contributing to your imbalance and look at your lifestyle for what might have caused the imbalance in the first place. We help you focus on making supportive changes that can include exercise, nutrition, posture and well-being.

FAQs about Chiropractic & Neck Pain

Will the Chiropractor crack my neck?

The intent of a Chiropractic adjustment is o restore balance to the nerves, joints and muscles. A very effective and popular technique that Chiropractors use to achieve this is a manual specific manipulation to a joint that is out of a balance.

Dr Roz is a highly trained professional and has had years of experience. Her patients report that the procedure looks and sounds uncomfortable and unusual, however it does not hurt. Specific manipulations are very safe, simple and gentle.

What three postures cause neck pain?

The most common postures to cause neck pain are the head being forward compared to the shoulders, one ear higher than the other, or one shoulder higher than the other. If you have these postural imbalances, it is likely chiropractic may help.
