How can Chiropractic help with neck pain?
Are you tired of suffering from neck pain? Anyone who has experienced neck pain knows how debilitating it can be.
After lower back disorders, neck pain is the second most common problem I see in practice. It can be common for problems in the neck to trigger other issues, such as; headaches, face pain, jaw pain, shoulder pain, referred pain into the arms and chest, hand as well as pins and needles and tingling.
Chiropractors are well trained to recognise different types of neck pain and have a variety of techniques and tools at our disposal to help patients achieve relief from those tight and sore areas in your neck, shoulders, and head.
At Dr Nathan's Chiropractic Studio, I have helped many patients in; Windsor, Prahran, South Yarra, St Kilda and the inner Melbourne area with neck pain.
I welcome any questions you have on neck pain and neck injuries. Book an appointment or call 0400 041 976 to schedule a consultation, so I may be able to provide you with an appropriate treatment plan for your needs.
