Neck Pain

neck pain chiro complaints

Two thirds of all Western Australia's will experience neck pain throughout their adult life. This will result in moderate to severe pain which can be both acute and chronic in nature.

As the workplace becomes more computer based we spend more and more time at a desk sitting in a compromised position. The muscle tension, which results from poor posture, will apply extra pressure on the neck, back and shoulder joints which will then irritate the sensitive spinal nerves. These postural effects can cause headaches, muscle tightness and tension, stress fatigue and other pains referred to the shoulder and down the arms.
