Neck Pain Treatment
Neck pain is the third most common complaint seen by our chiropractors and affects millions of people each year. At our chiropractic clinics in Solihull and Sutton Coldfield we do not believe in masking the problem by using pain killers and other drugs. Our approach to neck pain is first locate the underlying cause. After taking a thorough history we will do an examination which focuses on the structure and function of the spine and the effects on the relevant nerves. In other words its shape, how well it moves and works, and if it is irritating or pinching any nerves.
Often associated with prolonged sitting and driving and repetitive tasks “Simple” neck pain has many causes. Spinal misalignments and fixations can cause irritation and stress of the surrounding tissues such as the facet joints, joint capsules, ligaments and muscles.
