Types of Neck Pain

Pain experienced in the neck can vary from a dull ache to a sharp stabbing sensation. It also often comes with restricted movement.

Neck conditions we treat include:

Facet joint dysfunction – injury to a joint between vertebrae (the bones that make up the spine)

Muscle strain – overuse or overstretching of neck muscles

Headache – tension headaches often originate in the neck and shoulders

Disc herniation – leakage of the jelly-like nucleus from a disc between vertebrae – this is also a possible cause of back pain

Causes

Neck pain can result from injury to soft tissue (muscles, ligaments and nerves) or injury to joints.

The following are some common causes of neck-related pain:

  • Repeated minor trauma through moving and lifting
  • Sudden movement/whiplash
  • Poor posture/hunching
  • Excessive mobile phone use
  • Lots of driving
  • Wear and tear of spinal discs

Treatment

If you are experiencing pain in your neck, make an appointment with our chiropractors for a proper diagnosis. Once we have determined the cause of your pain, we can provide a suitable and effective treatment plan.

For facet joint dysfunction, treatment involves manipulation to release the muscle spasm. In the case of disc herniation, we use a combination of manual chiropractic techniques and a rehabilitation programme. For patients suffering from muscle strain or whiplash, we use gentle adjustments to help restore spinal movement, followed by a rehabilitation programme.

Headaches

There are many types of headache and they are often related to neck pain. The most common types are tension headaches which may feel like a tight band around your head, cervicogenic headaches which are often located at the back of the head and behind the eyes, and migraine headaches which affect one side of the head. Migraines can also include other symptoms, such as nausea and light sensitivity.

Causes of headaches include emotional stress, dehydration, visual strain, nutritional imbalance, physical trauma, muscle tension and dysfunction of joints in the neck.

To treat headaches, our chiropractors assess and treat the cause of the pain. Following diagnosis, we use manipulation and adjustment techniques to release neck joints and stretch, relax and strengthen the neck muscles.
