Neck Pain Treatment

Neck pain can be intense, debilitating and persistent, and some people suffer repeated episodes.

It can be felt in one or both sides of the neck and refer to the base of the skull and into the shoulders. 

It can be a sharp or dull pain, or feel achy, and can spread as far as the arm and hand, even as far as the fingers.

If the pain does not go after a few days, or starts to get worse, it is worth seeking professional advice from one of our chiropractors to see whether some treatment would be appropriate.

At Canary Wharf Chiropractic we have many years of experience of effective neck pain treatment, which is very common condition amongst the people who work in the area.

How can we help

Before starting your treatment, a full  assessment will be carried out at your initial appointment. Your assessment will provide key information in determining what can be achieved through treatment with one of our chiropractors and which techniques to utilise.

There are many ways a neck problem can be treated and each person will require a tailored treatment plan. This plan will be formed in discussion with you so you know your options and are able to choose how you want to make progress.

You may have had success with a type of treatment in the past and it might be possible to incorporate that into your new plan of action.

Our chiropractors often use hands-on techniques such as mobilisation and manipulation (also called adjustments) to improve how a neck moves and to decrease pain levels.

It might be important to loosen tight muscles around the neck and in the shoulders and this can be done with various muscle treatment techniques including massage.

Some people respond well to the acupuncture techniques we do. They can produce quick results and, if you have never had acupuncture before, you might be surprised at how painless the treatment is.

Whatever treatment you choose you will always be advised how you can help yourself get better in between sessions. This will include advice on whether you should use a hot or a cold pack, what stretches and exercises you should do, and what you should avoid doing.

People experience neck pain for all sorts of reasons. It might be the way you sit or stand, or because your work or lifestyle places stress on your neck. Worry or stress can cause tension in the neck and shoulders, and can delay recovery of existing neck pain. However, sometimes there is often no obvious reason why neck pain develops, although you could say that it is usually a combination of reasons.

Although it can be very painful, neck pain rarely has a serious underlying cause. Seeing one of our chiropractors, who are experienced in diagnosing conditions of the neck and spine, can help with your neck pain treatment, and also identify if a referral or specialist investigation is needed.
You will of course be able to ask questions about what is involved and you will be able to choose the type of treatment that is carried out.

Once you are happy to proceed you will be asked to give your written consent to treatment, which can be carried out there and then. The whole process from start to finish takes up to one hour.

How many sessions of treatment you will need will depend on what the problem is, how bad it is, how long you have had it and how much improvement you want to achieve.

A session or two might be enough to make a big enough difference to you, although this may only provide a short-term fix. Three or four sessions usually provides a better solution in very straightforward cases, but you could find that 10 to 12 sessions is recommended if the problem is predicted to be stubborn to alleviate.

But you could say, on average for our clients, five or six sessions are usually carried out. However, how many sessions you actually have is always up to you! You can stop treatment whenever you like and you will never be asked to commit to a minimum number. All we will do is make recommendations.

Please know that we will be upfront with you if we are unable to help and you will be referred to the appropriate health professional such as your GP or a specialist.

Although such referrals are uncommon we are always on the lookout for problems that we cannot treat. Chiropractors are trained to recognise the signs and symptoms of such problems and no case is ever assumed to be straightforward until it is concluded otherwise.

All details of your first and subsequent visits will be kept as part of your clinical notes. These are strictly confidential and nobody will be allowed to see your records without your permission but you will always be entitled to copies.
