How our Geelong chiropractors can help with neck pain

What can cause neck pain?

Acute and chronic neck pain can have many origins, some of which can be more nervous system mediated, such as following a stressful period or a poor night’s sleep, while others may be more biomechanical, such as following a motor vehicle accident or sporting incident. However, our Geelong chiropractors often see combination of nervous system and biomechanical factors in many cases. Often neck pain may present with mobility limitations, headache, radicular symptoms or simply, pain, discomfort and more.

Recent updates in clinical guidelines for the treatment of neck pain have highlighted a few key recommendations for best practice when managing neck pain, these include reassurance, advice and education on the nature of your condition is always a good idea, manual therapy in combination with other treatments and incorporating exercise therapy for self-management. Some specific subgroups may benefit from a multidisciplinary approach and psychological intervention.
