Do you suffer from Neck Pain and live in the Congleton area?
Why not see a chiropractor for your neck pain. Your head can weigh as much as six and a half bags of sugar so it’s quite an impressive job for your neck to support it. Your neck also contains nerves that reach from your brain to the rest of your body. In this day and age with the amount of driving, computer work and TV watching that most of us do, it’s not a great surprise that some of us need assistance from a chiropractor to keep our necks working properly.
Neck pain is often the result of bad posture, particularly when you regularly hold a weight too far from your body. Here are just some of the causes of neck pain that are posture related:
- The weight of your head, as you bend over a desk can be a cause of neck pain
- Lifting babies and children can be a cause of neck pain
- Carrying items into or out of the back of your car can be a cause of neck pain
- Repetitive manual work can be a cause of neck pain

Not just a pain in the neck
The result of neck pain is a loss or proper movement in the joints in your neck, which may interfere with the healthy working of the nerves that run through it. It can lead to pain, although it may take days, weeks or even months to develop.
The loss of proper joint movement may cause irritation of the nerves that come out of your spine. This, in turn, can lead to pain where the nerves end. This is known as ‘referred’ pain. Arm and shoulder pain may be caused by nerve irritation in the neck. This is why your neck may be treated when you have consulted your chiropractor about arm and shoulder problems including:
- Elbow Pain and Tennis Elbow
- Rotator Cuff Injuries
- Shoulder Dysfunction or Pain
- Soft tissue disorders of the shoulder such as Tendinitis and Frozen Shoulder
Keep your joints moving properly
Chiropractic is different from traditional treatment methods because it is the treats of the cause of pain, not the pain itself. Your chiropractor will carry out a full examination as well as asking you questions relating to your posture, medical history and lifestyle. This will help your chiropractor discover the reason for your neck, shoulder or arm pain and hopefully offer a diagnosis for it.
Once a diagnosis has been made, your treatment will begin. In most cases this will involve manipulating stiff joints to free them up and to also remove spinal nerve irritation. This kind of treatment is usually free of pain, but it is possible that you may feel some temporary discomfort if your back is very sore. It may also be recommend ice or heat treatment or massage.
