Neck Pain

At Perth Chiro Centre in Warwick, neck pain is a frequent issue we address. It notably impacts a significant portion of Perth's residents, particularly those who maintain prolonged, improper postures while working on computers.

The culprits often include poor posture during extended computer sessions, improper lifting techniques, and excessive use of tablets and mobile phones. Over the years, this has emerged as a prevalent concern affecting many individuals.

It's concerning that more and more kids are coming to us with neck pain and headaches needing chiropractic help. A big reason for this is how they slouch while using their phones and tablets.

At Perth Chiro Centre We Strive To:

Identify The Cause Of The Neck Pain:

Our initial focus in addressing neck issues is pinpointing the root cause of the pain. This step is crucial as neck pain can stem from various sources, each requiring specific treatment approaches.

 

Additionally, we delve into identifying any factors contributing to the problem. Once we have a clear understanding, we develop a treatment strategy tailored to the individual, which may involve avoiding activities that worsen the condition

Treat The Cause Of The Neck Pain:

The treatment depends on the diagnosis we have gained from the patient’s initial consult. The available chiropractic adjustment methods we administer at Perth Chiro Centre include:

Identifying Bad Habits And Making Appropriate Changes

During chiropractic treatment for neck pain, it's crucial for each patient to grasp proper postural habits and maintain correct ergonomics at their workstation. Consistent practice of proper posture is key, as it significantly contributes to the overall health of the neck and back.

Daily activities and work behaviors can greatly influence the onset of neck pain. This encompasses adopting appropriate lifting techniques, maintaining good posture while using the telephone, and steering clear of poor postural habits and repetitive motions in general.
