Chiropractic Condition Adelaide
Neck pain can be anything from uncomfortable and annoying to painful and debilitating. It can interfere with your concentration, sleep and your ability to perform daily tasks like checking your blind spot when driving or looking down to put your shoes on.
Your Adelaide Gonstead Chiropractor is trained to assess your spine, find the cause of your neck pain and recommend the most suitable treatment.
At Trowse Chiropractic Adelaide we often see people who are struggling with neck pain, general neck and shoulder tightness and an inability to move their head properly.
Proper neck function is essential as nerves in this region send information to the brain that can impact your balance and coordination of your body.
You may be experiencing the following:
- Discomfort and stiffness
- Muscular tightness
- Sharp catching pain, often when turning your head
- Wry neck – not able to move your neck, often with muscle spasms (common in children and teenagers)
- Decreased movement (e.g. turning left or right)
- Pain that radiates into the head or arm
Neck pain can start as a result of a trauma, such as whiplash, or may be a gradual process caused by poor posture, dysfunction in other areas of the spine or degenerative changes.
We will assess your spine to make sure your body is functioning as well as it can.
Common causes of discomfort:
- Spinal dysfunction
- Muscle strain
- Poor posture and forward head carriage
- Too much sitting
- “Text neck” from looking down at devices
- Degenerative changes (osteoarthritis)
What May Happen If You Don't Do Anything?
Sometimes that little niggle will go away in time but the cause may stick around. This may lead to the issue getting worse and becoming more frequent.
Living with neck pain and headaches is annoying and can become debilitating if it interferes with your life.
