Neck Pain

In Gloucester, around 10% of the population experiences neck pain at any given time.

Neck pain is predominantly found in ‘Westernised’ countries, likely due to the frequent use of PCs, smartphones, extended travel times, and carrying heavy, one-sided luggage and bags.

At the Longlevens Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic, we treat numerous patients from Gloucester, Cheltenham, and nearby areas suffering from various types of neck pain. Often, lifestyle factors contribute significantly to these issues, whether it’s prolonged computer use or engaging in physical activities like playing rugby.

We also provide relief for neck pain stemming from poor posture, awkward sitting positions, and tension in the neck or shoulders.

A real pain in the neck…

When supporting neck muscles fail to correctly support the bones, ligaments, discs, and joints of the neck, it can result in neck pain. This often occurs due to muscles being too tight or excessive pressure on the neck structures.

For those experiencing neck pain in Gloucester, applying an ice pack regularly and maintaining joint mobility are useful short-term strategies (more information available in “Why I need to Ice?“). However, it’s important to book an appointment with one of our chiropractors for a comprehensive approach.

At our Gloucester clinic, our chiropractors will assess, diagnose, and treat your neck issues, guiding you in managing them long-term to prevent recurrence. Treatment may involve a mix of manipulation, mobilisation, soft tissue work like massage therapy, and dry needling, tailored to your specific needs.
