Neck Pain and Your Chiropractor
by Broughton Grange & Guilsborough (Kettering) based Chiropractor Fiona MacRae
The neck is a very vulnerable part of the body. It supports the weight of the head and so has much work to do. The neck is susceptible to injury if the head is suddenly jolted causing the weight of the head to be displaced. The over-flexion or over-extension of the necks damages the muscles, tendons and ligaments and can cause misalignment in the vertebrae.
Neck pain is commonly caused by poor posture and tension, and the shoulders frequently become painful too. Neck and shoulder conditions can cause referred pain, numbness or tingling to the arm and hands, and may cause headaches or migraines.
The McTimoney Chiropractic treatment aims to help the nervous system to work more efficiently. Realignment and rebalancing of the body may relieve pain and discomfort, and help to increase mobility. When the skeleton is correctly aligned, the body is best placed to take its weight, so reducing the likelihood of further strain, pain and injury.
