Headaches & Neck Pain

Problems associated with the neck are often not initially so obvious. Joint stiffness is often the first thing we notice when we have a neck related issue, turning to park the car becomes less easy. Seeking treatment for just this is certainly good enough reason but then you notice that the headaches you have suffered for years reduce in severity or frequency. 

Joint pain in the neck often manifests itself in such ways due to nerve irritation feeding pain signals back to the head; this is called cervicogenic headache and is often migraine like in nature. 

Neuromuscular impingement in the neck can be caused in many ways. High velocity impact, often referred to as ‘whiplash’, is one such way. The high-speed change in direction of the neck and head changes the biomechanical positioning and relationship of the components within the cervical and often thoracic spine (neck and upper back). This can be the root cause of often chronic pain which at times can be severe. Referred pain can manifest in the arms, wrists and hands and can produce symptoms such as weakness and pins and needles. 

Chiropractic manipulation  (adjustments and mobilisation) combined with exercise can often prove very effective at reducing such symptoms.
