About Neck Pain

Neck pain is a common problem with 66% of the population experiencing neck pain at some point in their lives.

Mobility within the neck is vital for the correct function of the nervous system and most people do not notice how important neck mobility is until they no longer have it. Neck pain can be located in the multiple sections of the neck including the bones, nerves and soft tissue. There are a range of symptoms that occur when suffering from neck pain including but not limited to:
The body is interconnected and controlled by the spine and nervous system, if one part of the body is not functioning at its highest capacity another part of the body may be affected. This is sometimes the case with neck pain and a direct result of neck pain can be headaches, ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and lower back ache.

Pain and stiffness


Prickly tingling sensations in the arms and fingers


Sharp shooting pains radiating to the shoulder and/or the shoulder blades




Dull aches

The head is the heaviest part of the human body and the neck and upper back provide the main support. This means that neck pain can result from multiple sources including:

  • Poor forward head posture
  • Poor upper back posture
  • Injury
  • Whiplash
  • Nerve irritation
  • Disc problems
  • Spondylosis

I have suffered with neck, shoulder and arm pain and the treatment I have received has really helped me. I would certainly recommend anyone who is suffering with pain to attend this clinic.


It has been fantastic to get some treatment that cures the cause and not just the symptoms.  I’m now pain free – Great!


Before coming for treatment I had severe discomfort in my lower back following an operation.  This caused problems with my posture.  I am now able to stand taller and walk more freely.


Seeing a Chiropractor has changed my life. Previously I was in pain most of the time and my quality of life was restricted. Now I know that there is hope for a future without pain.


This is a practice whose staff are friendly, helpful and professional.  My treatment is far from over (arthritic spine, hip surgery etc.) but I am certain that without it I should be in a far worse state than that which I presently enjoy.


Before any treatment, I was very stiff and did not have much movement in my neck.  I now have full movement in my neck.
