Willow Chiropractic - specialists in relieving neck pain

Neck pain really is a 'pain in the neck'. It can be the result of a sudden, violent movement of the head, or it can seem to come on for no apparent reason at all. Whatever the cause, it's uncomfortable and often inhibits movement of the head, which can be very dangerous for drivers. Many people accept it as being the inevitable fall-out of everyday life, putting it down to stress or long hours working at a desk. It doesn't have to be this way!

Chiropractic is extremely effective in treating neck pain. At Willow Chiropractic, we’ve seen hundreds of people with this condition leave the clinic pain-free. One patient, Wendy, said; "The benefit for me has been tremendous, I am free of back, neck and shoulder pain for the first time in many months.”

About neck pain

Neck pain really is a 'pain in the neck'- it's where the saying comes from! A lot of people accept it as part of everyday life, with many of us putting neck ache down to stress, or the inevitable fall-out of working at a desk.

Twisted or Locked Neck

A twisted or locked neck, also known as acute torticollis, is caused by injury to the neck muscles or joints. It can be caused by bad posture, poor sleeping positions, or carrying heavy loads, such as a workbag, for a prolonged period.

Wear and tear in the neck (Cervical Spondylosis)

Neck pain can be caused by wear and tear to the bones and joints in your neck. This leads to stiffness, inflammation, reduced movement, and pain down the arms. Many people also experience numbness, tingling, and weakness in the arms and hands. It is particularly common amongst the over 50s.

Whiplash

Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head, commonly caused by an impact such as a car accident, although it can be caused by any sudden impact that causes the neck to overstretch. This damages the tendons and ligaments in the neck and it can be excruciating. Whiplash can also cause tenderness, headaches and limited, painful neck movements.

Pinched Nerve (Cervical Radiculopathy)

Neck pain can be caused by pressure on a nerve in the neck. This nerve pressure can cause the symptoms to radiate down the arm. These include pain, pins and needles, and loss of sensation in the arm.

Treating Neck Pain

Chiropractic treatment is extremely effective at treating neck pain. We use the latest techniques and equipment to relieve the tension, loosen up the muscles, and get the joints in the spine and neck to move better. Our goal is to get you feeling better as quickly as possible, and to address the underlying problem to make sure that the pain doesn’t come back.
