Talk to us about neck pain treatment in Melbourne
Everyone will most likely experience neck pain at some point, whether serious or not. We are human, after all. By this I mean that the very design of our bodies may leave us vulnerable to strains, sprains and injuries. Your head is essentially a weight for neck muscles to support, and if these muscles should weaken or fail, we are left with a very real possibility of injury.
So, the question then is: ‘Is my neck pain serious?’
If you are experiencing mild stiffness or irritation that disappears on its own after a night of rest, chances are you simply need to change your lifestyle. The manner in which you hold your head during your normal routine may have a profound impact on how the muscles in the neck will feel. For example, if you hold the phone to your ear with your shoulder at work all day, you might want to rethink that habit. Maybe you sit at a desk all day and read with your head down – not a very good idea, either.
For help determining the cause of your neck pain, contact Rosanna Chiropractic Health Centre to arrange an examination. We provide high-quality neck pain treatment to Melbourne customers to help them not only find the cause of the problem, but to help them overcome any bad habits and replace them with healthy ones.
If, however, your discomfort continues for a few days – or the pain moves from annoying to unbearable – your body is trying to tell you that something is not normal and you should visit your chiropractor as soon as possible. Some explanations for this prolonged pain may be disease, arthritis, degeneration, an injury, or possibly a malformation at birth.
No matter what the problem is, determining the cause of the pain is the first step towards curing it. To do this, your chiropractor will assess triggers such as posture, your usual behaviours and habits, your occupation and your overall physical condition – in addition to the clinical observations. When it comes to treating neck pain in Melbourne, our team will do their best to help you have the best outcome possible. We will work with you to pinpoint the problem and work towards not only eliminating it, but also avoiding it again in the future.
If your condition is not one that we feel may be helped with chiropractic care we will make recommendations who may be more helpful. We work with your GP, we also work with physiotherapists, neurologists, orthopaedists, myotherapists, osteopaths, and many others. Again, our main concern is your best outcome.
