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.

If you're suffering from neck pain in Kettering or the Northamptonshire area and require the services of an experienced chiropractor, please don't hesitate to contact me.

What My Clients Say


Being 6ft 7 inches tall and a farmer I regularly suffered back problems. I first started using Fiona in 2005 and experienced the benefits shortly afterwards. I now get very few problems despite my job involving manual work and lots of driving. I am now in a situation where I have several appointments a year with Fiona - more as a "maintenance" session to prevent future problems occurring. The treatment from Fiona is excellent and tips on posture and exercise has helped dramatically. I would thoroughly recommend Fiona to anyone who suffers with back and joint problems.
