Modern life can take its toll on our necks. Our lifestyles often mean that we are sitting at desks for long periods of time, leaning forward to look at computer screens or performing repetitive tasks. This often leads to poor posture and muscle tension. In turn this can apply extra pressure on the neck, back and shoulders, causing headaches, migraines or other neck pain.
Our neck has to work hard in supporting the weight of our heads. This makes the neck vulnerable to pain and stiffness. Other actions also put a strain on our neck such as the overuse of the arms along with too much lifting and carrying. All of these can lead to uncomplicated mechanical neck pain.
Normal movement to the joints between the vertebrae of the spine can be restored with chiropractic treatment and associated soft tissue therapy, mobilisation and exercise advice. The outcome being relief from discomfort and pain.
