The neck (or cervical) region of the body consists of 7 vertebrae that allow movement of our head relative to our body. Neck pain can be caused by trauma such as a sporting injury or motor vehicle accident, by holding prolonged awkward positions such as sleeping incorrectly and very commonly with poor posture, with prolonged sitting and with a sedentary or inactive lifestyle.
Due to the close proximity of the joints of the neck to the nerves, significant pain can result sometimes including pain radiating into the arms, numbness or tingling in the arms, weakness in the arms and severe headaches. If untreated neck pain can lead to chronic neck pain.
A thorough examination should be taken alongside neurological and structural tests. Following your examination the chiropractor will treat you for pain relief unless, on the rare occasion, further investigation is required.
