Neck Pain in Dulwich Hill

The average weight of a human head is 4.5-5kg. That means your neck must balance the weight of a bowling ball all day. Due to postural changes or previous traumas such as whiplash from car accidents, balancing your head on your neck can sometimes become increasingly difficult. As a result, joints and muscles in the neck can often be overloaded and produce pain. Many of our My Back Relief Clinic patients have found relief from their neck pain with our care.

Why Is Neck Pain So Painful?

Unfortunately, neck pain can be especially debilitating because there are far more sensory nerves found in the neck than there are in any other parts of the human spine. That means that the neck can often sense pain more strongly than any other part of the spine. In addition, due to the close relationship between the neck and the head, neck problems can often cause headaches.

How Does Chiropractic Help Neck Pain?

As chiropractors, we look at the body as a whole. We understand that neck pain can often originate from other structures of the body, such as poor posture of the shoulders and mid-back, and even the jaw (TMJ pain).

That means that patients with neck pain and stiffness may also need to get the rest of their spine assessed, to fully understand the cause of the neck problem. Our chiropractors are especially skilled in addressing neck stiffness with spinal adjustments. An adjustment aims to move a joint in the neck and also stretches the surrounding muscles that causes neck stiffness.

The type of care given may depend on the cause. A condition like torticollis (wry neck) may need to be addressed in a different way to forward head posture, for example.

Our Approach to Care

We take the time to determine the root cause of your problem. We do this by taking a comprehensive history and examination and, if clinically indicated, we may refer for X-rays.

We often use a combination of adjustments, rehabilitation, and ergonomic advice to manage neck conditions. We may also address and recommend strategies to combat bad postural habits such as computer or phone posture to properly manage neck pain.
