Neck pain or a stiff neck is a common problem and is generally caused by poor posture, sitting for long periods of time, stress, sleeping in an awkward position, incorrect pillow or mattress or a strained muscle.
One of the most recent reviews of scientific literature found evidence that patients with chronic neck pain enrolled in clinical trials reported significant improvement following chiropractic spinal manipulation . We have treated a variety of patients with such neck and shoulder pain with a large number of causes being due to stress and poor postures.
Chronic forward head posture can eventually wear down the joints and discs in your lower spine and cause your hands and finger to become weak or tingling.
During your Consultation with us, a variety of tests are carried out to locate the source of pain. Questions such as when did the pain start, how long has it been there, are you in pain anywhere else, does anything reduce the pain or make it worse? A full posture check is also carried out.
