How we treat neck conditions:
Treating the neck starts with a detailed assessment of not only the neck but surrounding joints such as your shoulders, upper back and skull. We also take into account other factors that may lead to neck issues such as posture, sleeping patterns, sports and work conditions. We always start with an in depth history to find out how long you may have had your neck stiffness, pain and headaches. Many neck issues can be a result of other joints being stiff including your jaw joints, shoulder joint, shoulder blade and upper back; in other words how your posture relates and contributes to your neck issues.
