Neck pain and headaches are a very common issue in our society.
Up to 67% of neck pain is due to joint irritation.
In our office, depending on your diagnosis of neck pain and what type of headache may be present, we build a treatment plan that targets the direct and indirect causes of your neck pain.
Many of our patients receive a combination of chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue massage, Neurodynamic treatment, the use of The McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, and corrective rehabilitation exercises. Our goal is to help you achieve life-long resolution of pain, not just a temporary fix.
