Neck Pain - North Ryde

Neck pain may come and go or occur suddenly.  It can vary from mild discomfort to excruciating pain and may also radiate down into your shoulders, arm or up to your head.

Causes of Neck Pain:

  • Poor posture
  • Stress
  • Arthritis
  • Sleeping incorrectly
  • Trauma such as a car accident or a fall

The cause of the pain may be a muscle strain, ligament sprain, disc bulge, nerve irritation or arthritis.

If you are experiencing neck pain, it is important to have it thoroughly assessed before treatment is started.  We will take an in-depth history, complete examination including x-rays if appropriate.  A diagnosis will be made from our findings and discussed with you, along with our recommendations for treatment.

Our chiropractors at Riverside Chiropractic, use spinal manipulative therapy to help alleviate neck pain, which has been shown by research to be beneficial. (1)  The manipulation is gentle and can be done via hand or a hand held instrument.
