Neck Pain, Headaches and Migraines

Treating The Cause,
Not JustThe Symptoms

Your head ways around 5kg and is perfectly balanced on our neck and shoulders. When we sit at a desk or on our phones or laptops our head is often further forward. As this angle increases, the strain on the muscles and joints in your neck can be up to 22kg! That is the equivalent of 55 loaves of bread! This can cause joint irritation and leave you feeling stiff and achy. As Chiropractors we can help loosen the joints, get rid of the tension and give you some exercises and tips to help you improve your posture.

Spondyltits

Spondylitis is an inflammatory condition arthopathy that is characterised by pain that eases with activity but not with rest. It is usually worse in the morning, making you feel stiff and achey when you get up. It is most common in the lower back and pelvis. Chiropractic can help mobilise and get these joints moving more freely, reducing the tension and irritation. We take a detailed history and do a thorough assessment to help get to the root of the problem.
